Cyberpunk 2077 Developer Donates $1 Million to Help Fight COVID-19

The COVID-19/coronavirus pandemic continues to be a problem around the world, and many companies are donating significant amounts of money and time to fight the COVID-19 virus. CD Projekt RED, the developer of The Witcher and Cyberpunk 2077, is one of them.

On Thursday, CD Projekt RED took it to its official Facebook account to announce that it's donating around $1 million to help fight the coronavirus. Here's what the company said:

"We are all following events related to the coronavirus epidemic. The number of cases is increasing, and the health service is facing more and more challenges. In these hard times, every help counts, so over the last few days we have been wondering how we could contribute. We are not familiar with buying medical equipment, masks or overalls, which is why we decided to cooperate with professionals with many years of experience... Today, we donated PLN 4 million to fight coronavirus - half of this amount as CD Projekt SA, and the other half privately. The private part was financed by the main shareholders and the management board of CD Projekt. We would also like to thank the entire medical service and everyone involved in the fight against the virus. Risking your own health, you fight for ours every day - your hard work is our inspiration. We also have an appeal to everyone who reads this message: take seriously what is happening around us. Listen to the recommendations of those who know about public health."

Thanks to one of the best videogame developers in the world! Hopefully, their donation will help get the virus under control before it gets much worse. Until then, please stay at home to be safe until the coronavirus problem is over, because right now, our world looks just as dangerous as Cyberpunk 2077's Night City.


"Cyberpunk 2077 is an open-world, action-adventure story set in Night City, a megalopolis obsessed with power, glamour and body modification. You play as V, a mercenary outlaw going after a one-of-a-kind implant that is the key to immortality. You can customize your character's cyberware, skillset and playstyle, and explore a vast city where the choices you make shape the story and the world around you."

Cyberpunk 2077 is set to release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on September 17, 2020.
