It looks like the announcement of Phantom Liberty, the official DLC of Cyberpunk 2077, may not be the end for the sci-fi world set up by CD Projekt RED. The CEO of CDPR, Adam Kiciński, has hinted that the company “definitely intend[s]” to develop Cyberpunk 2077 sequel. Check out the complete details below.
CDPR Hints at Cyberpunk 2077 Sequel
According to a Q&A session with investors, CDPR CEO Adam Kiciński confirmed that the company absolutely intends to further develop Cyberpunk’s IP, focusing on brand recognition.
Although Kiciński’s statement confirms that there will be no more DLC for the main game after Phantom Liberty, he also suggests that CDPR is already planning a full-fledged Cyberpunk 2077 sequel.
This is also confirmed by Kiciński’s revelation that Phantom Liberty will be the last CDPR project to use the REDengine, confirming that future titles in the series will be made with the powerful Unreal Engine.
“We decided to release one large expansion using the potential of the new generation of consoles”, Kiciński said in the Q&A with investors. “At the same time, I would like to emphasize that we want to further develop Cyberpunk’s IP. We have invested a lot of time and effort to build this brand and we definitely intend to develop it further.”
The studio has recently lost a very important element related to the development of the game in question, although this will in no way affect the arrival of new projects.
CD Projekt Red has already confirmed that it will support Cyberpunk 2077 for a long time, with new content for the video game and IP support that should extend well beyond the gaming world. The Polish studio is also working on a new chapter of The Witcher made in Unreal Engine 5.
Even if there are no concrete details on the upcoming project, there will be still something coming up from CD Projekt RED in the near future. Recall that, Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty DLC will release next year only on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PC, and Google Stadia.
