A sequel to Cyberpunk 2077, currently codenamed "Project Orion," is on the way and will be developed by the new North American studio.
If we were able to jump in a TARDIS and rewind time to December 2020, I'm dead certain we wouldn't find one gamer who would believe this news. Tiny trees, possessed cars, unfortunate incidents with underwear - all of these glitches plagued Cyberpunk 2077 and completely undid eight years of excitement. I mean, maybe even the team weren't sure it would be possible.
Is Cyberpunk 2077 actually any good now? Yes. We think you'll find it is. Check out our video on the game's chaotic journey below.
"Our plans are certainly ambitious, and call for a great deal of work, dedication and further growth," said Piotr Nielubowicz, vice president and CFO of CD Projekt, in a press release. "This is why we’re setting up a new team in Boston, which, together with the expanding Vancouver team, will form our new studio - CD Projekt Red North America. As a result, we will be able to fully tap into the North American talent pool."
Obviously, details are minimal, and that's likely a lesson learned from the tumultuous development course that the original game suffered over the last two years. It's lucky then that we've also been treated to the announcement of five new Witcher games. Five! I was really not ready to write this amount of news so rapidly!
The Witcher 4 is currently codenamed "Project Polaris" which is fancy. Then, once Polaris is out, two more Witcher games will round that out to a tidy "AAA RPG trilogy." We are aware that this is a "new saga" in the Witcher universe, so it is unlikely to follow another one of Geralt's stories. CD Projekt also announced Canis Majoris which is "a full-fledged Witcher game, separate to the new Witcher saga starting with Polaris." And lastly, echoing its commitment to more multiplayer, Sirius is the new Witcher game developed by The Molasses Flood - the team behind The Flame in the Flood and Drake Hollow.
