A few months ago, those responsible at CD Projekt confirmed a successor to the role-playing game “Cyberpunk 2077”. As indicated in the course of the current business figures, the pre-production of the sequel will not start until the end of 2023.
As the developers of CD Projekt announced a few months ago, the Polish studio is not only working on a new trilogy in the universe of The Witcher.
In addition, a sequel to “Cyberpunk 2077” is planned, which will be created under the working title “Orion”. Apart from the fact that CD Projekt here with up to 500 employees plans that will work on the sequel, no specific details about the project have been given so far. And as was indicated during a telephone conference on the current business figures, it will remain so for quite a while.
Accordingly, the pre-production of the “Cyberpunk 2077” successor could only start at the end of next year.
Work on Orion will not start until after Phantom Liberty
Internally, the focus is initially on “Phantom Liberty”, the story extension to “Cyberpunk 2077”, which will be released in 2023. CFO Piotr Nielubowicz said, “Following the launch of Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty, we will accelerate the work of the new Boston studio on the Orion project.”
“After the release of Phantom Liberty, we will start working on the next cyberpunk game,” said CEO Adam Kiciński, adding that the successor to “Cyberpunk 2077” will enter the prototype phase after the release of the add-on and not yet into pre-production, which is being done by “a smaller team than what’s working on Phantom Liberty now.”
