That’s It: A Sad Announcement From The Creators Of Cyberpunk 2077…

CD Projekt RED has confirmed that they are “satisfied” with the state of Cyberpunk 2077 and will no longer develop it. From now on, they only think about the sequel.



After three years of updates, the creators of Cyberpunk 2077 are finally moving on. CD Projekt RED officially confirmed this during a Q&A session held for their investors. The company explained that they have been satisfied with the state of the address since the end of last year. Thus, no further major updates are planned. Moreover, most of the team has already been transferred to other projects. There are now only 17 employees working on the game.

The clarification came after an investor asked if 17 developers were enough for the work the game required. “Yes, that’s enough. We are satisfied with the current state of the game (…) The number of the team may even decrease a little, because we are not planning any further updates for now. Of course, we will continue to keep an eye on the game,” said the company during the aforementioned Q&A. In this sense, the game has practically gone into a “life support” state in which there will be no more content.

The development company reminded investors and fans of Cyberpunk 2077 that it is already working on the sequel, which is currently codenamed “Project Orion”.

This project is still in its very early stages. It employs only 47 employees. Most of the company’s efforts are focused on developing the sequel to The Witcher 3. There has been no new main game in the Witcher saga since 2015. Although they are going full steam ahead, new releases are still waiting for you.

On the one hand, it seems like good news that CD Projekt can move on. The company remained indebted to the community after the disastrous release of its flagship game. But Cyberpunk 2077 is now getting rave reviews from users. Reviews on Steam in the last 30 days are overwhelmingly positive (92% out of 8,000). The title still has plenty of players. On the other hand, this announcement is also a bit sad. After all, we have to wait a few more years for the sequel, and the world of the game would still have plenty of opportunities to tell more stories…
