Cyberpunk 2077 Studio Clarifies Reports Of Multiple Cyberpunk Projects, Confirms Mobile Game
Cyberpunk 2077 is looking rife with stunning detail and incredible world-building, an aspect emphasized by CD Projekt’s showcases of extensive customization, in-game character interactions, as well as the living futuristic locale of Night City. The massive scope of such an interesting setting could easily lend itself to several games, a fact to which CD Projekt president Adam Kiciński seemingly agreed following reports of three Cyberpunk titles in development.
However, it appears that this bit of news may have been blown out of proportion, the Polish studio’s statements seemingly misconstrued by an apparent mistranslation. As revealed in a statement with PC Gamer, Kiciński’s talk of “three teams” working on Cyberpunk was not supposed to indicate multiple games, but rather three separate development teams working on a singular game: Cyberpunk 2077.
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.”
As Cyberpunk 2077 sports such a distinct look and diverse world, dedicating three full teams to the game’s development isn’t that difficult to believe. Clarifying their statement, CD Projekt makes mention of five total teams under their company, the aforementioned Cyberpunk trio alongside “a separate, dedicated team at the Warsaw studio” working on the Witcher-based card game Gwent. Spokko, the final team, is said to be working on “a yet unannounced mobile project.”
While CD Projekt isn’t working on any bonus Cyberpunk games, that doesn’t mean there aren’t any projects currently in the pipeline. The developer has previously confirmed follow-up expansions will release following launch, in addition to the multiple endings that players could potentially encounter. Outside CD Projekt’s efforts, the base tabletop game Cyberpunk 2020 is also getting a prequel edition set to debut later this summer.
Cyberpunk 2077 is set to release for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on April 16th, 2020.
