CD Projekt RED is the largest and most dynamically developing studio producing computer games in Poland. The company has grown so much that it is possible to work directly on two new AAA games. One of such projects is the successor to Cyberpunk 2077, currently codenamed Orion. The game’s production process is slowly starting, as evidenced by the fact that very experienced people from the industry have joined the team.
The CD Projekt RED team working on the next installment of Cyberpunk 2077 was joined by people with experience working for studios such as Blizzard Entertainment, Obsidian Entertainment, WB Games and Ubisoft.
CD Projekt RED reveals a lot of details about The Witcher 4, Cyberpunk Orion and The Witcher 1 remake
The gaming industry veterans who recently joined the CD Projekt RED team have experience in producing AAA titles. Such a person is, for example, Dan Hernberg, who will take over as executive producer. The developer previously worked at Amazon Games, Panic Button and Blizzard Entertainment. He was the co-creator of New Worlds, Apex Legends and Diablo III, among others. Ryan Barnard, game director of Massive Entertainment and Ubisoft and gameplay director at IO Interactive, became the director of design. The Orion project will be engineered by Alan Villani, whose portfolio includes work for WB Games and the Mortal Kombat series. The writing team will be enriched by Anna Megill and Alexander Freed. The first person mentioned has over twenty years of experience in the industry. She worked on, among others, Control, Dishonored: Death of the Outsider and Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora. Alexander Freed, in turn, can boast of cooperation with DICE studios, Obisidan Entertainment, and Wizards of the Coast.
Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty achieved very good sales results. CD Projekt RED is already working on the new Witcher
Work on the next part of Cyberpunk 2077 is also carried out by experienced people from CD Projekt RED itself. These are developers whose portfolio includes the first installment of the production and its expansion. These include the current game directors Gabriel Amatangelo and Paweł Sasko, creative director Igor Sarzyński, director of scene design and direction Andrzej Stopa and many other developers. The team, consisting of people who already have experience working at CD Projekt RED and industry veterans from other studios, is to ensure that there will be no repeat of the not very successful premiere of Cyberpunk 2077. However, it should be noted that we will probably have to wait many long years for the next installment of the game. . It can be assumed that the next Witcher will see the light of day sooner, as well as a remake of the first part of the game, which is mainly being worked on by Fool’s Theory studio. Project Orion is being developed, among others, by the American branch of CD Projekt RED.
