Cyberpunk 2077 is not even out yet and we already have news of a sequel. Cyberpunk 2077 sequel is in development, according to a new report from Bankier.pl. The report fromPolish publication reveals there are not two but three games in development for the Cyberpunk series.
Update: It turns out that Google Translation was not as accurate as we thought. CDPR has confirmed that it is not working on 3 Cyberpunk 2077 projects. The official statement from the company is as follows:
We currently have a total of five teams working on a number of projects, with three focusing on the development of Cyberpunk 2077.
3 teams are working on finishing Cyberpunk 2077 instead of 3 Cyberpunk games being in development. The rest of the original story is as follows:
It seems CD Projekt RED is going The Witcher route and creating a Cyberpunk trilogy. The story of V won’t end with Cyberpunk 2077. We may also see the return of Silverhand played by John Wick Star Keanu Reeves.
The developing studio has five teams working on various games. Aside from Cyberpunk 2077, Wroclaw branch is working on Cyberpunk multiplayer game. Moreover, there is an “innovative” project in development at CDPR.
It is the same AAA RPG CD Projekt RED announced a few years ago. It is in development alongside Cyberpunk and will release sometime around 2021.
While this is exciting news, it seems CDPR has truly moved on from The Witcher series. Fans who hoped to see The Witcher 4 will have to wait a long time. The development of the next Witcher game may face issues from Andrzej Sapkowski.
Andrzej Sapkowski is the creator of Witcher books and is still bitter over the deal with CDPR.
The series will air sometime in 2019.
