Yesterday, Aftermath published a new interview with Pawel Sasko - the lead quest designer for Cyberpunk 2077, who is currently working on its sequel known as Project Orion. We have obtained new, minor information from him about the work on that game and The Witcher 4.

The developer confirmed what we heard when the studio released its financial results - most of the devs of Cyberpunk 2077 have already joined the team developing the next installment of The Witcher. As a result, he described the work on this title as "intense," indicating that the studio is currently completely concentrated on this project.

Sasko also commented on the "stage" of Project Orion's development, describing it as "fairly early." The creator, acting as Orion's deputy director, assured that the title is supervised by "well-trained" people responsible for the well-received Phantom Liberty.

Most managers and most directors who worked on Cyberpunk and Phantom Liberty are on [the new] Cyberpunk. [...] We want to make sure that whole DNA is preserved and still in the game.

It's worth mentioning at this point that the studio recently expressed its views on microtransactions in its titles, clearly stating that they don't belong in single-player games. Therefore, we can be confident that we won't encounter them in the two upcoming productions.

It seems that CD Projekt has its hands full. Finally, besides the mentioned titles, they work with teams involved in the Sirius Project and the remake of the original Witcher. Furthermore, they have recently initiated tests of the REDkit modding tools for The Witcher 3, which you can find out more about at this link. Fans of the studio definitely have something to look forward to.
