CD Projekt Red is definitely increasing the profile of its sci-fi open world RPG as of late after years of mostly silent development. After confirming that Cyberpunk 2077 is being made and would have online elements, the studio mentioned on Twitter that it won’t be delving into shady tactics that it sees plaguing other games:
“When thinking [Cyberpunk 2077], think nothing less than [The Witcher 3] — huge single player, open world, story-driven RPG. No hidden catch, you get what you pay for — no bullshit, just honest gaming like with Wild Hunt. We leave greed to others.”
Cyberpunk 2077 is looking to pick up some new talent, too. CD Projekt Red has posted dozens of job openings for the game, including artists, a lead gameplay designer, an open world designer (tasked with “keeping high quality of sandbox content in game”), and a network programmer (“helping in design and implementation of multiplayer changes to existing systems”).
