Publish date:

CD Projekt RED is following up its successful Witcher series with a new “triple-A” sci-fi project, it has announced.

The new title will be based on Cyberpunk, created by pen-and-paper RPG designer Mike Pondsmith, and will focus on a mature audience as well as non-linear gameplay.

The game will also be developed by a “new team” at CD Projekt.

“For over two decades, I’ve been proud to say that Cyberpunk’s been the gold standard of what it means to be a true cyberpunk game,” said Pondsmith.

“And it’s been a huge success for me and our many fans, with over 5 million players worldwide. But over all that time we haven’t found the right team to bring our cyberpunk world to full digital life - until now. CD Projekt Red is the team we’ve been hoping for.

“Their incredible work on The Witcher and The Witcher 2 shows that they share the same dedication and love of great games that we do at Talsorian.”
