CD Projekt is not because of share its full-year financials till April 22, however that hasn’t stopped the Cyberpunk and The Witcher developer from sharing a sneak peek at estimated figures forward of time.

The corporate shared a single slide to its IR-focused Twitter account at this time, reporting estimated consolidated gross sales income of two.139 billion PLN and consolidated web revenue of 1.154 billion PLN.
