Cyberpunk 2077 Sequel To Be Developed By New US-Based Team
Core members of the original Poland team will move there.
"We want to create a new band in Boston," wrote CD Projekt in their press release, "which together with the growing team from Vancouver will become CD Projekt Red North America." It goes on to express how this would allow the company to access the pool of talented North American developers.
There was seemingly some level of concern with the wording of this announcement; it was indeed a bit vague and did make it look possible that a team of completely new developers would helm the creation of the sequel. Therefore, Quest Director for Cyberpunk 2077, Pawel Sasko, took to Twitter to clarify. He states that after the release of the previously announced DLC, Phantom Liberty, he will "focus primarily on the new Cyberpunk 2077 project code name Orion!"
Sasko confirms that he'll be moving to Boston "together with the core team responsible for Cyberpunk 2077" to establish the new studio. He also explains that all teams, Boston, Vancouver, and the headquarters in Warsaw, Poland, will work together remotely to develop the next game. So, fans of the 2020 title can rest easy, as it's clear the same minds that brought you the original will lead the charge for the sequel.
