Following The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - the last title in the series -, developer CD Projekt RED has focused its attention towards a new project, Cyberpunk 2077. While the name was revealed as far back as five years ago, not much is known about it, besides the few glimpses offered in the CGI teaser trailer. To address concerns regarding the silence around the project, the co-founder and studio head have taken to Twitter.
The full statement from co-founder Marcin Iwiński and CDPR studio head Adam Badowski can be seen in the tweet below:
The joint disclosure above assures fans that Cyberpunk 2077 is "progressing as planned" - despite the blackmail attempt from earlier this year -, and that "silence is the cost of making a great game."
Another important subject addressed in the majority of what is written above is that of the Glassdoor reviews for CD Projekt RED, the majority of which are critical of management. It is important to note, however, that while these appear to be former employees, the statements therein are anonymous, so should be taken with a grain of salt in the absence of further proof. CDPR says that its focus on "reinventing the wheel every friggin' time" leads to a better game and that its approach to making games is "not for everyone".
Last but not least, the developer thinks someone would need to be "very courageous" to base the future of a game with the scope of Cyberpunk 2077 on the departure of a few people, pointing to the doubling of its headcount since the release of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt back in 2015.
