Development Has Ended on Cyberpunk 2077, Over 400 People Working on The Witcher 4

CD Projekt RED said earlier in the year that the vast majority of post-launch support for Cyberpunk 2077 had wrapped up, and that if the game were to get any further updates in the future, they would be minor ones. Now, it seems like the developer has well and truly moved on from the game.

As part of its recent quarterly fiscal briefing, CD Projekt shared a graph showing how many people it has got working on the many projects it has in varying stages of development at the moment. As per the chart, as of April 30, there are currently zero people at CD Projekt who are working on Cyberpunk 2077. That’s down from 17 people still working on the game as of February 29.

On the other hand, the size of the team working on Project Orion, which is Cyberpunk 2077’s sequel, has grown by a little bit, up from 47 people as of February 29 to 56 people as of April 30. The game, which was confirmed to be in the conceptual design stage as of October last year, is being developed primarily by CD Projekt RED’s newly established North American wing.

Meanwhile, Project Polaris, which is the next mainline The Witcher game, is by far the biggest project currently in the works at CD Projekt, with 407 people working on it as of April 30 (up from 403 people as of February 29). The company previously said the RPG will enter full production at some point in 2024.
