If you're eager to hear more about The Witcher developer CD Projekt Red's intriguing-looking role-playing game Cyberpunk 2077, you may want to get comfortable. The Polish developer tells GameSpot today that the studio's current focus is squarely on May's open-world RPG The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

"The first rule of Cyberpunk 2077 is that we don't talk about Cyberpunk 2077," said Michal Platkow-Gilewski, the developer's head of marketing and public relations.

"On a more serious note, in short, communication-wise, we are now focusing entirely on The Witcher: Wild Hunt. Everyone is working crazy hard to give gamers around the world an RPG to remember. Worry not, Cyberpunk 2077 is OK, its time will come."

After multiple delays, The Witcher 3 is now due out in May for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

Cyberpunk 2077, which was announced in October 2012, is in development by a separate team inside CD Projekt Red. As such, The Witcher 3's multiple delays have not had much of an effect on Cyberpunk 2077's development.

Platforms for Cyberpunk 2077 have not yet been announced, but the game is "probably" coming to Xbox One, PS4, and PC. CD Projekt Red also has not announced a release date for the game.

Cyberpunk 2077 puts players into a "dark future" in 2077 where advanced technologies have become "both the salvation and the curse of humanity." The game promises a nonlinear story designed for "mature" players and is set in the metropolis of Night City.

The game will also have sandbox elements and some form of multiplayer, though CD Projekt Red stresses that Cyberpunk 2077 is a "true RPG," and definitely not a multiplayer shooter.
