CD Projekt Red announces Cyberpunk 2077 sequel, new Witcher trilogy

    The future of CD Projekt Red outlined.

    CD Projekt Red released a strategy update on October 4, revealing a Cyberpunk 2077 sequel and new Witcher trilogy are being planned.

    The studio is currently developing Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty, which is a major story expansion. Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty is in the final production phase and on track to release in 2023. Additionally, CD Projekt Red announced Project Orion, the official codename for the sequel to Cyberpunk 2077. Project Orion will be developed by the main CD Projekt Red team with the goal of proving “the full power and potential of the Cyberpunk universe.”

    Multiple Witcher projects are being planned and developed by CD Projekt Red. The first project is codenamed Project Sirius and developed by The Molasses Flood. Project Sirius is described as “an innovative take on The Witcher universe telling an unforgettable story for existing Witcher fans and new audiences.” CD Projekt Red is lending support to The Molasses Flood during development of Project Sirius.

    The second major Witcher project is Project Polaris, the first game in a brand-new Witcher trilogy. Project Polaris is a “story-driven open-world RPG built on the legacy of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.” The new game is currently in pre-production at CD Projekt Red, and the entire trilogy will be released within six years following the release of Project Polaris.

    The third major Witcher project is Project Canis Majoris, a “story-driven single-player open-world RPG set within The Witcher universe.” Project Canis Majoris is being contracted out to a third-party development studio led by ex-Witcher veterans.

    To close out the Cyberpunk and Witcher series announcements, CD Projekt Red confirmed a new IP is currently in the conceptual phase. The new project is codenamed Project Hadar and will serve as the company’s third leading IP. CD Projekt Red plans to develop Project Hadar internally.
