Cyberpunk 2077 has certainly been on a journey. It’s no secret that the game was a hot mess upon release, one that many of us thought was beyond saving, but CD Projekt Red did eventually prove us wrong. Earlier this year, a new-gen patch was released and Cyberpunk 2077 finally started living up to its potential. It helped that the very successful Cyberpunk: Edgerunners launched on Netflix around the same time.
It’s now been announced that a Cyberpunk 2077 GOTY Edition is on the way, plus let’s not forget about the Phantom Liberty DLC. If that’s not enough, CDPR also recently revealed ‘Project Orion,’ a sequel to Cyberpunk. No one could have predicted this. Don’t expect to get your hands on the sequel anytime soon though.
Take a look at the trailer for the Phantom Liberty DLC below.
CD Projekt Red has confirmed that the tentatively titled ‘Project Orion’ will not enter pre-production until 2024. During an investor’s Q&A session, studio president Adam Kicinski confirmed that no development will be undertaken in 2023. Even then, a pre-production date of 2024 is at the earliest which means work could easily begin after that.
CDPR aren’t going to repeat their mistakes. I’m sure developers will take their time on the title, seeing as they can’t afford for Cyberpunk 2077’s mistakes to be repeated. With this in mind, we might not see the game release until 2027 and beyond. There are plenty of other CDPR projects to keep us entertained in the meantime though.
The Witcher 3’s new-gen patch is set to release very soon, plus there’s a brand new Witcher trilogy in the works alongside a remake of the original game. We’re hardly going to be starved of CDPR content.
