Cyberpunk 2077 Sequel Devs

It's going to be a long time until we see the next Cyberpunk game — currently known as Project Orion — but it sounds like the title's already in good hands. During CD Projekt Red's latest investor presentation, the developer confirmed that Orion is being spearheaded by "a team of veterans who were responsible for fine-tuning Cyberpunk 2077 and designing Phantom Liberty".

Update 2.0, which launched just days before Phantom Liberty, has played a huge part in the title's most recent popularity surge. It overhauled whole systems, improved the underlying mechanics of combat dramatically, and introduced key components like police chases and vehicular battles. With that core team now in charge of designing 2077's sequel, we're pretty optimistic — and that's without even mentioning how good Phantom Liberty is.

"We’re going to work out of North America, Vancouver and Boston locations, team leadership are already there," chief creative officer Adam Badowski explains. "Late in 2024, we’re going to work with teams comprising several dozen people, while as a target, half of the developers are going to work out of northern US and the other half out of Poland." Needless to say, the Polish company has expanded its reach significantly.

Again, though, this game's a long way off. Officially, it's in the "conceptual design" stage, which basically means that ideas are still being thrown around.
