Cyberpunk 2077 in Full Development, Team Size Eclipses The Witcher 3


Fans eagerly awaiting CD Projekt RED’s next large-scale RPG, Cyberpunk 2077, will be happy to hear (via NeoGAF) that the game is currently in full development.

The question regarding the sci-fi RPG was brought up during their latest shareholder meeting, where the company was asked if the remaining employees not working on Gwent were working on Cyberpunk 2077.

CD Projekt RED confirmed that not only are the remaining employees working on the game, but they have more employees working on Cyberpunk 2077 than they did on The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt in its most intensive development month.

When asked about the game’s release date, they teased that “they like to surprise, so they won’t reveal it.”

Are you guys excited for Cyberpunk 2077Sound off in the comments below!

    Definitely excited about this game, provided I’ll be able to create my own cyborg prostitute to play as.

    Always sad to see “(via NeoGAF)” on a post, though. How you can ban your entire userbase and still somehow get regular scoops is beyond me.

  • Narmy

    Finishing up my Witcher 3 playthrough right now and it’s been amazing. Can’t wait for this game, especially since I like cyberpunk more than fantasy.

  • Malcolm_Ecks

    These guys made the game that The Elder Scrolls/ Dragon Age wanted to be. Will these guys be able to make the game Dues Ex tries to be???

  • Arenegeth

    This will be a very interesting game indeed, especially since it will unshackle CD Projekt RED from game mechanics that are tied to Geralt and the idiosyncrasies of the Sapkowski world.

    Not that the Cyberpunk IP doesn’t come with its own limitations, but they are far more free to explore the scope of the gameplay and story telling, in being able to play many different classes or even ‘races’ (more like cyborg or something like that given the setting) and actually following through an evil merciless path few RPG’s do justice to these days.

    Anyway, one of the few upcoming games my jaded, cynic, old ass is looking forward to.

  • Madbrainbox

    I want to see some gameplay.The sooner the better.I hope they will have less useless locations than they had in Witcher 3.

  • scemar

    so this game is going to be huge huh
    I was already on board with the themes and the premise, and of course the devs, but they keep making it sound better

  • pomfland

    They had a user who translated post from a public CDP forums thread where shareholders ask questions and get replies, and reported on it to the GAF. Nothing more to it.

  • Mr0303

    I don’t think we’ll see this game anytime soon. Given how many delays the Witcher 3 had, it’s reasonable to think that they’ll take their time with this game as well.

  • Stilzkin

    Born just in time to play proper cyberpunk games

  • catazxy

    As all developers should.

  • catazxy

    Witcher 3 had a big team, I just hope they don’t get to the ubisoft’s team size, because there are downsides to bigger numbers (communication speed, management, decision making, lesser impact of individual developers=decreasing moral, cost, and much more)

  • PenguinPlayer

    I can’t wait to have personal responsabilities in 2077.

  • PenguinPlayer

    Don’t you talk shit about my boy Deus Ex, unless you mean Human Revolution/Mankind Divided/Invisible War in which case carry on.

  • Uncle Ocelot

    I’m thinking that’s what he meant.

  • Shinobu

    Their “entire userbase” is just PR schills, gaemz journalists, and SJW’s who fall in line.

  • s_fnx

    Are you fucking kidding me?

  • Will3316

    Human Revolution is great though.

  • Eliaaan

    But it was really fun exploring though, even though you had nothing to do but walk around and try to get the perfect scenery out of it.

  • Eliaaan

    Both medieval fantasy and cyber sci-fi are equally amazing, i simply can’t pick between the two.

  • Madbrainbox

    I agree.And in many places you had some really cool monsters to fight.That’s a plus in my the same time,I wish they went the
    Witcher 1 route where you have a smaller world but with more substance.

  • AT-LOW

    Yep. Unless someone speaks whatever european language they were writing in on their forums, we wouldn’t have had this info otherwise.

    Be thankful that you get to read it through an honest site like Niche Gamer and don’t have to put up with any of NeoFag bullshit to get what little benefit there is of being a member of that community.

  • Tubsiwub

    Dunno what it is, but I was hyped from the first announcement.

  • Azure

    Bigger isn’t always better, there could be a lot of miscommunication that could happen if they cannot handle a bigger team.

  • Sevuz

    Oh yes give me some of that sweet Cyberpunk juice. I need it. We have enough fantasy and modern shoot crap for a life time. Give us a solid NEW cyberpunk game thank you very much.

  • Maxwell Mineur

    It’s “” for future reference

  • nonchalantxsteve

    Is this coming to consoles?

  • Malcolm_Ecks


  • psycho_bandaid

    It might be a bit closer to what Dragon Age is trying to be (with the 2nd and 3rd Dragon Age especially), but the Elder Scrolls games are more about playing as a character that is a blank slate and from there you can have them be whatever type of person you want. The Witcher games are more about playing an established character through a tighter story. While it’s true that they are all RPGs these games have fundamentally different ways of handling role-playing.

  • sanic

    I’ll take 7 if I can play it on console I doubt I’ll be able to play it on my crappy pc.
