Though CD Projekt RED have been reluctant to say when exactly their upcoming magnum opus Cyberpunk 2077 might launch, we have still been getting some development updates from the studio. Recently, we learned that development on the game began in full after The Witcher 3’s final expansion, Blood and Wine wrapped up in 2016, so we can assume that work on he project is coming along nicely.
Not too long ago, though, we learned that the game’s creative director, Sebastian Stępie, had left the studio to joined Blizzard, which was cause for concern for some people about how Cyberpunk 2077’s development might be affected. According to a report on Polish site Stockwatch though, CD Projekt RED is confident that Stępie’s departure won’t have a detrimental project of the game. The studio also went on to reveal that over 400 people are currently working on the project. “His departure does not affect the pace of work on our latest title in any way,” said Karolina Gnaś from the investor relations department of CD Projekt. “The team working on Cyberpunk 2077 already has over 400 people.”
With the number of people working on Cyberpunk 2077, we hope for a release date sooner rather than later. Though CD Projekt RED remains adamant that it’ll be out only when “it’s ready”, recent reports have indicated that it might launch in 2019 itself.
