After a disappointing launch of Cyberpunk 2077, CD Projekt Red has revealed that it is working on a new Cyberpunk game, Codename Orion. The new title will continue the dark future-themed franchise while also introducing multiplayer experiences. The game is also expected to feature more content than its predecessor and will increase CD Projekt Red’s development skills.
The studio has announced several projects, including a sequel to Cyberpunk 2077. It has also shared plans for future expansions to its world, including a Witcher game. The new games will be open world and will begin a new trilogy. It has not yet been revealed when Orion will be released, but we can expect it to arrive soon.
CD Projekt Red has also announced the codenames for five new projects listed below. Each one of them has its own brief description. The developer has said that each title will be a new IP, which is exciting news for fans. They have also promised to add multiplayer to the majority of their projects.
- New IP codenamed Hadar
- Project Sirius (Witcher project)
- Project Polaris (Witcher 3 sequel, new trilogy)
- Project Canis Majoris (new story-driven Witcher open-world RPG)
- Project Orion (CP2077 sequel)
The studio has a healthy work environment and agile development methods. The move to the Unreal Engine should increase productivity. The last game in the series, Cyberpunk 2077, sold over 20 million copies despite problems with its launch. However, it was plagued by bugs and performed poorly on last-gen consoles. But since its launch, the series has enjoyed a resurgence thanks to Netflix anime adaptations.
