CD Projekt Red has always been in public praise for it’s world renown, most beloved and critically acclaimed gem of a series called The Witcher. So it’s expected that all eyes would be on them for the unveiling of their latest “Projekt” that is Cyberpunk 2077. The team brought to you the masterpiece known as Witcher 3 is now even bigger with all hands on deck preparing Cyberpunk.
Developer CD Projekt Red has disclosed the size of its development team that is working on its next grand title, Cyberpunk 2077. In a particular post on studio’s online discussion forum, where investors generally submit any kind of queries, they were asked how many people were currently working on the title.
As has been reported by NeoGAF, the developer’s reply was:
There are currently more game developers working on Cyberpunk 2077 than on The Witcher 3 in its most intensive month.
The magnificent development effort for Cyberpunk 2077 is clearly visible, as can be seen through CD Projekt Red’s recent massive recruitment drive. Just last month, on August 30, it had around 60 available open positions for the game developing team posted on its careers website, Many of these were heavily focused on creating vehicle-based gameplay.
Cyberpunk 2077 was showcased back in early 2013 with a cinematic teaser and as could be seen, it’s clearly set in a dystopian future and based on the good old Cyberpunk RPG which was designed by Mike Pondsmith, who is currently partnering with CD Projekt Red for the video game. The game is scheduled to launch in the 2017-2021 window (apologies for the awfully large window but that’s all we currently have to go on with).
CD Projekt Red stated last month that it probably won’t be talking much about it until it has something big to show.
Right now it’s the end of talking about Cyberpunk until we can go out there and show stuff and say, ‘Hey, here it is,’ because that’s how we do games. When we show it, we should show it and explain it. So I’m going to have people not read anything about Cyberpunk probably for the next… time, whatever the time will be.
And for more big words to add fuel to the fire, Iwinski also previously said Cyberpunk 2077 will be “more ambitious” than The Witcher 3 “on every single front.”
