A report from Polish business website Bankier
revealed that CD Projekt president Adam Kiciński and CEO Piotr Nielubowicz issued a statement that the company is working on three Cyberpunk-related projects.
We already know what one of these three projects is, the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077
. But based on a Google translated version of the report, Nielubowicz said that the next big CD Projekt game will also be set in the “Cyberpunk” universe.
“Our next big project will be in the ‘Cyberpunk’ universe, and we’re already working on it and treat it as a really big and innovative project for us,” Nielubowicz said via the translation.
The third Cyberpunk project in development is reportedly a multiplayer mode for Cyberpunk 2077, allegedly developed by a 40-person team at CD Projekt’s studio in Wroclaw. Each of the three Cyberpunk projects reportedly are being developed by their own teams, while a fourth team is continuing development on The Witcher card game spinoff Gwent.
CD Projekt has not confirmed this multiplayer mode for Cyberpunk 2077, but IGN has reached out to CD Projekt for comment on the reported quotes and the other potential Cyberpunk projects.
Currently, CD Projekt’s marketing is focused solely on Cyberpunk 2077. CD Projekt hosted another major showing at E3 2019 where the studio revealed that actor Keanu Reeves will play a major part in Cyberpunk 2077
. We were able to speak with Reeves at E3 to discuss the big Cyberpunk role
CD Projekt developed previously developed three full RPGs based on The Witcher series of fantasy novels. And should these new reports prove accurate, CD Projekt’s roadmap for the next few years could be focused on Cyberpunk.
