Cyberpunk 2077’s development is in full swing.

After The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Cyberpunk 2077 is set to be the biggest title CD Projekt RED has ever produced.

CD Projekt RED has set the bar for gaming pretty high with the release of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and its two expansion packs Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine. With the debut of the The Witcher 3: Game of the Year Edition on August 30th and thus bringing closure to Geralt of Rivia’s adventures, the company focuses all of its attention on the mysterious cyberpunk RPG Cyberpunk 2077, having more developers working on the title than The Witcher 3 did during its most crucial months of creation.

Man versus machine.

Since its initial announcement back in 2012, CD Projekt RED has stayed true to their word and kept all information regarding the game under wraps.

With The Witcher 3 having been the company’s main focus for many years, the studio stated that they won’t divulge any information connected to Cyberpunk 2077 until 2017. So far, the company has withheld most of the information from prying eyes, but visual effects artist Jose Teixeira claimed that their sci-fi title aims to be bigger, better and more revolutionary that The Witcher 3, aiming to supersede its predecessor in terms of sheer size and complexity.

What does it mean to be human?

In 2012, CD Projekt announced the game with an impressive debut trailer in order to evaluate the audience’s initial reaction.

Fortunately for CD Projekt RED, the trailer was met with a lot of positive praise from fans and has been a decisive source of enthusiasm for many members of the company as they explore a new frontier. Company CEO Marcin Iwinski voiced his worries about the risk of some of the team’s members burning out after working on the same fantasy genre for more than a decade. Iwinski aims to keep the studio’s members energized as they dive into the futuristic, dystopian world of Cyberpunk 2077.

The nihilistic, dystopian world of Cyberpunk 2077.

The recruitment drive on CD Projekt RED's website has been extended to 60 new positions devoted exclusively to the development of Cyberpunk 2077.

With Cyberpunk 2077, the company aims to surpass any of the company’s previous outings, and since August 30th, the official website has had more than 60 open positions for the game, with a particular emphasis on creating vehicle-based gameplay. This goes to show that CD Projekt RED will spare no expense and will go to great lengths in order to meet lofty expectations and apply the lessons learned from Geralt’s last adventure faithfully.

Cyberpunk 2077 is scheduled to launch in the 2017-2021 window on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
