Development of Cyberpunk 2077 is officially over

May 29, 2024 by No Comments

In the latest financial report, CD Projekt revealed that development on Cyberpunk 2077 has officially ended. In the last report published in February, there were only 17 developers left to support the title – now, that number has dwindled completely. More than 400 developers are working on ‘Polaris’, the next game in The Witcher series, and 56 are busy with Orion, the sequel to Cyberpunk 2077.

End of an era

Cyberpunk 2077 was released in 2020 to overwhelmingly negative reception. Investors pursued legal action against CD Projekt Red because it was a game that failed at launch. Then, amidst huge and ongoing costs, the team pulled Cyberpunk 2077 out of the gutter and hundreds of millions of dollars turned it around for good. By the time Phantom Liberty was released in 2023 (the game’s only expansion), Cyberpunk was considered one of the most iconic rags-to-riches stories in gaming history.

The A recent financial statement Published by CDR, Cyberpunk 2077 has confirmed that not a single developer is working on it. This is the first time in a decade that no one has supported a game on CDPR.

Cyberpunk 2077 ends life with a bang. It won the BAFTA Award for ‘Best Evolving Game’ and has a whopping 95% positivity rating on Steam, a remarkable number by all accounts – especially since two years ago, the game had a 50% positivity rating.

Now we can look forward to what comes next from CD Projekt.
