CD Projekt Red, the creator of Cyberpunk 2077, has started “exploratory work” on at least 1 new videogame development, in conjunction with its continuing work on next-generation platform improvements for Cyberpunk as well as the Witcher 3. CD Projekt, the creative studio’s owner company as well as game publisher, recently produced a report on the developer’s achievements in 2021. While a majority of the study is concentrated on the studio’s current work on next-gen enhancements as well as a Cyberpunk 2077 feature extension, the publisher also hinted at upcoming work. CD Projekt has reported a recent drop in net profits, which they credit to the costs of upgrading Cyberpunk and also CD Projekt Red’s “exploratory work on other projects that are in the early stages of production.”
While the press statement did not reveal any further data on CD Projekt Red’s untitled projects, it did provide data regarding a particular new videogame arriving from another CD Projekt-owned development company. According to the news statement, 2 Northern American companies, Digital Scapes as well as The Molasses Flood, have just joined the firm. While Digital Scapes was renamed CD Projekt Red Vancouver and merged into the bigger company, The Molasses Flood “will concentrate on a standalone videogame based on one of CD Projekt Red’s IPs.” The Molasses Flood was founded in 2014 and has already released two survival games: The Flame in the Flood in 2016 and Drake Hollow in 2020. In October of this year, CD Projekt announced the acquisition of The Molasses Flood and stated that the studio will preserve its identity and work independently on its upcoming production.
As per Adam Kiciski, the President as well as Joint CEO of the CD Projekt Group, CD Projekt Red is “busy working on the next-gen edition of Cyberpunk, due for launch in the Q1 of 2022, with another big upgrade for all platforms.” The next-gen upgrade, as well as the next-gen version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, were initially expected for later this year. Nevertheless, CD Projekt postponed both releases until 2022, with Cyberpunk arriving in Q1 and The Witcher following in the second quarter of the following year. Post their release, the next-generation editions of Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher 3 would be available to buy as independent items for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S, or as free upgrades for people who already possess titles on previous systems.
