CDPR Announces New Cyberpunk and Witcher Projects


Recommended Posts

Saw this and thought it was a pretty huge announcement, two top level ips with new titles. Kind of seems like lots of promises and to be taken with several grains of salt though. Based on the last game this should all be out by about 2077 lol Just copied the text of the article not sure how to do inline links for non yt stuff.



CD Projekt RED has announced three The Witcher games, a sequel to Cyberpunk 2077, and a new IP


During its latest strategy call, CD Projekt RED revealed its new projects/games that are in development. According to the company, there are three The Witcher games, a new game set in the Cyberpunk 2077 universe, and a new IP.

Going into more details, Project Polaris will be a sequel to The Witcher 3. For Project Polaris, CD Projekt RED plans a new trilogy. On the other hand, Project Canis Majoris will be a new story-driven Witcher open-world RPG. And lastly, Project Sirius will be another The Witcher project/game.

Project Orion will be a sequel to Cyberpunk 2077. This does not really surprise us. After its rocky launch, Cyberpunk 2077 has met commercial success.

Now since these are brand new projects, we can safely assume that they will be using Unreal Engine 5. After all, CDPR confirmed in March 2022 that its next The Witcher game will be using Epic’s engine.

As CD Projekt RED officially revealed:

“Orion is a codename for our next Cyberpunk game, which will take the Cyberpunk franchise further and continue harnessing the potential of this dark future universe.

Polaris is a codename for the next installment in The Witcher series of games, which we recently announced was in pre-production. It is the beginning of a new saga: we aim to release two more Witcher games after Polaris, creating a new AAA RPG trilogy.

Canis Majoris is a full-fledged Witcher game, separate to the new Witcher saga starting with Polaris. It will be developed by an external studio headed by experienced developers who have worked on past Witcher games.

Sirius is a codename for the game developed by The Molasses Flood, set in The Witcher universe and created with support from CDPR. It will differ from our past productions, offering multiplayer gameplay on top of a single-player experience including a campaign with quests and a story.

Hadar is a codename for a third, entirely distinct IP, created from scratch within CDPR. The project is in the earliest stages of the creative process, which means we are not developing any game yet, but working exclusively on the foundation for this new setting.”

Any mention of the Witcher 3 next gen patch that's been on/off the news for some time now? I'm still sort of waiting for that before replaying the whole thing... 

Totally forgot about that so didn't follow it. I can't believe they didn't release that yet, doesn't bode well for this to be anything but investor speak.  Probably never get more than one more or so of each witcher and cyberpunk game if even that, studio behind GOG will slow way down like Valve with steam, more money in being the middleman than actually making games. Or the third party makers will flubb it up, not too good of track histories all around.

Will pay attention in 5 years when they have something to present lol


CP2077 was initially announced in 2012, considering how its likely to use assets and functions that were created for CP2077 dev time should be shorter but CDPR tends to have longer development cycles for better and/or worse
