Cyberpunk 2077 Sequel Announced, Witcher Projects Explained | GameSpot News

CD Projekt Red announces Cyberpunk 2077 sequel as well as several Witcher Games, the Dead Space remake gets its first look at gameplay, and Nintendo announces a Direct around the upcoming Super Smash Bros. movie.

Cyberpunk 2077 is getting a sequel, more Witcher games than you can shake a stick at, Dead Space reveals final gameplay, and a Nintendo Direct is coming this week. All on today’s GameSpot News.

As part of its strategy presentation, CD Projekt has announced that it has multiple new games in development. Although details are slim, the company did announce that a sequel to 2020's Cyberpunk 2077 is in development under the codename "Project Orion" and will "prove the full power and potential of the Cyberpunk universe" when it is released.

Additionally, a number of new games set in The Witcher universe are also in various stages of development. These are all being developed under various codenames as well, and include Project Sirius, Project Polaris, and Project Canis Majoris.

For Project Sirius, this Witcher game is described as an innovative take on the series that is aimed at both veteran fans and people new to the franchise. Currently in pre-production, it is being developed by Flame in the Flood developer The Molasses Flood and has 60+ people involved in its creation.

Project Polaris is described as a story-driven open-world RPG built on the legacy of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and has more than 150 people working on it at CD Projekt Red. This game will be the start of a new Witcher trilogy that is aiming to be delivered within a 6-year period following the Polaris release.

A story-driven single-player open-world RPG set within The Witcher universe, Project Canis Majoris will be developed by a third-party studio that will be led by ex-Witcher veterans.

Beyond its two most well-known franchises, CD Projekt is also working on a new standalone IP, codename Project Hadar. It has been in "IP incubation" since 2021 and is currently in the conceptual phase. This game is described as being distinct from Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher and is being developed 100% internally.
