Polish website Bankier recently reported that CD Projekt RED is currently working on three games based on the Cyberpunk universe. However, CD Projekt RED has issued a statement, debunking these rumours.
As CD Projekt RED claimed, it currently has five teams working on game projects; three are working on Cyberpunk 2077, one is working on GWENT and the other is working on an unannounced mobile game.
“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 Wroc?aw 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.”
Theoretically, though, Bankier could be correct. We do know that an expansion will be released for Cyberpunk 2077 so we are obviously looking at two “games” set in the Cyberpunk universe. Not only that but the Wroc?aw team is reportedly working on a multiplayer mode for Cyberpunk 2077 (again it’s unclear whether it will be released as a standalone game or as a post-launch update).
Interestingly enough, CD Projekt RED did not mention its “other” triple-A RPG that was supposed to come out in 2021. Since the team did not show anything at all for this project at E3 2019, we can safely assume that it has been delayed.
