CD Projekt RED’s Project Hadar Will Also be an RPG

"We do certain types of games and I think it’s safe to assume that we want to continue to do the games within that kind of genre," the developer says.

CD Projekt RED is going to have plenty on its plates over the coming years, what with the Polish company recently having revealed plans for a number of upcoming games that it’ll be working on over the coming years. That includes a new Witcher trilogy, two major Witcher spinoffs, and Cyberpunk 2077 sequel. At the same time, the developer has also confirmed that it has started working on a new internal IP for the first time in its history as well.

Currently called Project Hadar, the title will be the studio’s first IP to be entirely developed internally from scratch, and has been in incubation since late 2021. Details on it are understandably scant for now, but what sort of a game can we expect it to be?

Speaking during a recent conference call (via VGC), CD Projekt’s SVP of business development Michał Nowakowski said that while Project Hadar is still in the very early stages of development (to the extent that there’s no word even on when it will enter pre-production), it is still going to be an RPG and will align with the sort of experiences one would expect to see from CD Projekt RED.

“We’re not providing any specific dates in terms of the start of the pre-production of the title,” he said. “We’re still at the phase of building that setting and this is the part that’s preoccupying the core team working on it. However, when it comes to the genre, we do certain types of games and I think it’s safe to assume that we want to continue to do the games within that kind of genre, so you can imagine what kind of game to expect.”

CD Projekt RED has built its reputation around single player, story-driven open world RPGs with a heavy focus on choice and consequence mechanics, so it’s safe to assume that Project Hadar won’t deviate from those core tenets. As for the other details, it seems like it’s going to be quite some time before we get any concrete word on that front.

CD Projekt has also said that “most” of its future games will also feature multiplayer elements, but it remains to be seen whether that’ll be the case with Project Hadar as well.
