CD Projekt RED has made several major announcements, confirming that it has multiple major projects in the works. As you’d expect, a lot of that entails continued investment in the Cyberpunk and The Witcher franchises- but the Polish company has something else that’s entirely new in the works as well.

CD Projekt has announced in an investors presentation that it is also working on Project Hadar, a new title. While details on the game are scant, the company confirms that it’s a completely new IP developed “100% internally”, and is distinct from Cyberpunk and The Witcher (both of which are, of course, based on original works).

Project Hadar is currently very early in production, with CD Projekt saying it is “in the conceptual phase”. It has been in incubation since late 2021, with only a “small strike team” working on it for now. Presumably, it’ll be quite a while before we hear any concrete details on this.

The next mainline Witcher game is in development at CD Projekt RED and will begin a new trilogy, while work on a sequel to Cyberpunk 2077 will also begin once its expansion, Phantom Libertylaunches next year. Called Project Orion internally, it will be developed by a newly-established studio in Boston.

Meanwhile, two more The Witcher games are in the works, with The Molasses Flood working on one, and an open world single player RPG spinoff being made by a third party studio comprised of former Witcher developers.
