Cyberpunk 2077, The Witcher, CD Projekt RED

Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher developer CD Projekt Red has announced that it has split into two teams.

The team shift, which was detailed as part of the company’s financial report yesterday, plays into CD Projekt Red’s desire to become a “dual-franchise” studio. Simply put, expect more Witcher and Cyberpunk games in the grand RPG developer’s future.

“Managing two separate major franchises (The Witcher and Cyberpunk), along with several independent development teams, enables the Company to conduct parallel work on several projects and smoothens its long-term release schedule.”

With the decision to split the team in two, CD Projekt Red will now be able to create a timeline with less of a gap in between game releases.

“This migration towards a dual-franchise model supported by several independent product lines also permits optimization of manufacturing and financial activities, mitigates important risk factors and makes it easier for Company employees to seek professional fulfillment.”

For Witcher fans, check out the long-awaited trailer for Netflix’s Witcher series starring Henry Cavill. Though you should know the show is more so based on the book series from author Andrzej Sapkowski rather than CD Projekt Red’s video game trilogy.

Cyberpunk 2077 launches for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One players on April 16, 2020.
