While Cyberpunk 2077 is still in the works, the director of the Polish studio announces his plans for 2022, new titles on his flagship licenses.
In addition to showing his hope that Cyberpunk 2077 will one day be recognized at its fair value, the boss of the CD Projekt studio, Adam Kicinski, unveiled his future ambitions in the columns of the Polish newspaper Rzeczpospolita.
We are currently focusing on our two franchises. Both have huge potential, so one of our strategic goals is to start to work on AAA projects in parallel within our IPs, which should happen next year.
New AAAs are therefore planned for CDPR, while the studio is already busy with the PS5 and Xbox Series port of Cyberpunk 2077, but also the continuation of the big patches postponed to next year.
From 2022, the studio will therefore focus on its two current IPs, namely Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher, “in parallel”, which is a first.
Given the worksite on the first franchise, it would therefore be more a new opus around the Witcher which would be targeted by the studio. Not surprising since the studio had already confirmed last year its desire to return to the heroic-fantasy saga after CP2077.
As for those who already hope to see The Witcher 4, remember that the current saga was planned as a trilogy and that a new title will not necessarily be linked to this first story. The rumors evoke a series around Ciri.
