Cyberpunk 2077 developer CD Projekt Red recently held an investor relations meeting. A wide range of topics were discussed during the conference including details regarding the sci-fi RPG.
The meeting was intended to discuss and glean information from the outcome of the company’s previous financial quarter. When asked about the current status of the game, they revealed that they will be expanding its production team.
Three Times More People Working On Cyberpunk 2077
Guess this is what CD Projekt Red meant by saying that Cyberpunk 2077 has a “sizable team” working on it. With such a large development team behind the game, it seems production is finally kicking into high gear.
According to IGN, CD Projekt Red recently revealed that there are 100 people working on its standalone card game Gwent. This is in addition to the 60 job openings posted on August 30, although the company made no mention whether there are any developer crossovers between the two games.
The developers promised several months ago that Cyberpunk will “even bigger, even better, even more revolutionary” than The Witcher 3. This puts the team under pressure to deliver on these promises. It would be very disappointing to see another game that went way below expectations, as in the case of No Man’s Sky.
The game will take place in a “dark future in 2017” where advanced technology becomes both salvation and curse of humanity. It can be played on either first-person or third-person perspective. Communication, verbally or otherwise, will be possible with the use of high-tech implants.
Along with a single-player story mode, a multiplayer component will also be included in the game. Cyberpunk 2077 is based on a pen and paper RPG created by Mike Pondsmith.
