Cyberpunk 2077 CD Projekt Red

So it turns out that there are a lot of people working on Cyberpunk 2077. Speaking to Polish publication StockWatch -- as translated by TechSpot -- CD Projekt Red's investor relations director Karolina Gnaś says that over 400 developers are currently working on the gritty sci-fi RPG.

To put things in perspective, the maximum number of employees who worked on The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt at any one time was around 250 people, so it's safe to say that Cyberpunk 2077 is a very ambitious project.

Despite the fact that the developer has been consistently adding to its workforce over the last three years or so, there was some concerned speculation over creative director Sebastian Stepien's departure from CD Projekt Red, which we reported on just a couple of weeks back.

However, Gnaś reckons that "[Stepien's] departure does not affect the pace of work on our latest title in any way". It could well be that Stepien had simply finished up his role on the game after all, although we're sure that the speculation will continue regardless.

It's still difficult to estimate when Cyberpunk 2077 will be finished, but given the growing manpower behind it right now, it's clearly moving forward. With any luck, we'll see more of it as we move further into 2019.
