CD Projekt Red Aims for Cyberpunk 2077 Sequel to Follow The Witcher’s Evolution

CDPR's Narrative Director Reveals Plans for the Cyberpunk 2077 Sequel and How It Will Draw Inspiration from The Witcher Series

In a recent revelation, a senior official at CD Projekt Red has shed light on the development direction of the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 sequel, drawing inspiration from the evolution seen in The Witcher series. This insight into the highly anticipated RPG follows the studio’s confirmation 13 months ago that a new Cyberpunk 2077 game, codenamed Orion, is in the works.

With the recent release and critical acclaim of Phantom Liberty, CD Projekt Red finds itself temporarily without projects nearing completion, redirecting its focus toward long-term endeavors such as the Cyberpunk 2077 sequel and the fourth installment in The Witcher franchise. While substantial details about these forthcoming games may not surface in the near future, CDPR officials intermittently share insights into their ongoing work. In a recent interview with PC Gamer, CDPR Narrative Director Igor Sarzynski discussed how The Witcher 4 development differs significantly from that of Cyberpunk 2077.
