Now Playing: Cyberpunk 2077 - Mike Pondsmith about Cyberpunk World

The development effort for Cyberpunk 2077 is significant, as also shown by CD Projekt Red's recent recruitment drive. On August 30, it had more than 60 open positions for the game posted on its careers website, and many were focused on creating vehicle-based gameplay.

Cyberpunk 2077 is set in a dystopian future and is based on the Cyberpunk RPG designed by Mike Pondsmith, who is partnering with CD Projekt Red for the video game. Cyberpunk 2077 is scheduled to launch in the 2017-2021 window.

CD Projekt Red has said it probably won't be talking much about it until it has something big to show.

"Right now it's the end of talking about Cyberpunk until we can go out there and show stuff and say, 'Hey, here it is,' because that's how we do games," CD Projekt Red co-founder Marcin Iwinski previously said. "There is too much talking about what it possibly could be, and how big, and...

"When we show it, we should show it and explain it. So I'm going to have people not read anything about Cyberpunk probably for the next... time, whatever the time will be."

Iwinski also previously said Cyberpunk 2077 will be "more ambitious" than The Witcher 3 "on every single front."
