It’s been an interesting couple of days for CD Projekt Red. Yesterday, it was reported by a Polish website that the company was not only developing the highly anticipated Cyberpunk 2077, but that they were also making multiple installments in what looked like potential spin offs for the Cyberpunk universe. This caused quite the frenzy among the video game community, but the company has officially debunked these rumors, stating to multiple outlets that it simply isn’t the case.
Turns out, the original report from the Polish website was based on a translation error from Google Translate, which in turn caused the accidental misrepresentation of what the company was doing. What originally looked like numerous titles is actually multiple studios under the CD Projekt umbrella that are all contributing to the overall game. All of the outlets who reached out to the company received the exact same statement which reads as such:
“We currently have a total of five teams working on a number of projects, with three focusing on the development of Cyberpunk 2077. These include CD Projekt Red Warsaw and Kraków, who are handling the main game, as well as the Wrocław studio, where around 40 industry specialists are engaged in technology R&D. A separate, dedicated team at the Warsaw studio is handling the development of Gwent. The final team is Spokko, which is currently working on a yet unannounced mobile project.”
The company has stated in the past that they would like to give Cyberpunk 2077 the same post-launch treatment that they gave their other popular title, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. This would mean massive expansions that add onto the already insane amount of content, or at least we assume that their will be with a game of this magnitude. Despite the initial reports being incorrect, it’s still an awe-inspiring thing to hear that CD Projekt Red is putting everything it’s got into the title, which only makes us more excited for it.
Cyberpunk 2077 launches on April 16 2020 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
