CD Projekt Red has stated it will focus its efforts entirely on the Witcher series and the Cyberpunk 2077 while reaffirming that it wants to create more games in The Witcher universe.
In a conversation with journalists recorded by Polish small business site Stool (and translated with Google Translate), CD Projekt Red president Adam Kicinski said the studio was working on another singleplayer game also that it had a”comparatively clear concept.”
That said, it will be a while before the bulk of the studio’s tools will be transferred to it: after the launch of Cyberpunk 2077 at September, Stool reports that the most significant team will proceed to Cyberpunk 2077’s multiplayer element, while the 2nd biggest will work on the game’s singleplayer expansions. A third, smaller team will operate on”another large singleplayer game.”
Based on Kicinski’s statement that CD Projekt intends to continue working from the Cyberpunk and Witcher universes, a Witcher RPG appears likely. From what CD Projekt has stated in the past it probably will not be called The Witcher.
To affect Cyberpunk 2077, Kicinski discussed the prospect of COVID-19 during precisely the interview. “The problem regarding coronavirus is so dynamic it is hard to consider doing it. We will take part in trade fairs if they take place. When they don’t take place, we’ll show the very same things differently – then the internet works normally, we’ve got a means to reach players.”
I will update the story if I hear back and reached out to spokespeople for CD Projekt Red for clarification.
