We all make mistakes. It’s easy to do in the hustle and bustle of our daily lives. Indeed, no one is perfect, regardless of what their Tinder profile reads. Yesterday, it was reported that developer CD Projekt was working on multiple Cyberpunk 2077 games. Many speculated that this could mean the company was perhaps already on its way toward a sequel. Others believed we may see a spinoff game, much in the same style as Gwent: The Witcher Card Game. This is not the case, however. The quote from the company that led people to believe there would be multiple games was actually mistranslated thanks to Google Translate.
The original quote came form Polish site Bankier. CD Projekt president Adam Kiciński reportedly said (via Google Translate) the company was “working on three Cyberpunk things—over the main game and over two more.” Earlier today, the developer cleared the air, saying that this is false. In truth, the company has three teams working on Cyberpunk 2077, and only Cyberpunk 2077. Two other groups within the company are running different projects. The response came via email through PC Gamer.
“We currently have a total of five teams working on a number of projects, with three focusing on the development of Cyberpunk 2077,” a CD Projekt representative wrote. “These include CD Projekt Red Warsaw and Kraków, who are handling the main game, as well as the Wrocław studio, where around 40 industry specialists are engaged in technology R&D.”
A separate, dedicated team at the Warsaw studio is handling the development of Gwent,” the representative added. “The final team is Spokko, which is currently working on a yet unannounced mobile project.”
Jumping the gun, sort of
Certainly, it’s far too early to talk of a sequel to a game still a year off. Still, there will be more to Cyberpunk even after the final credits roll. CD Projekt plans on making several large expansions to the game, much like it did with The Witcher 3. Speaking with Prima Games, UI coordinator for CD Projekt Alvin Liu talked about the future of Cyberpunk. While the team is currently focusing on delivering a “very rewarding ending,” it doesn’t plan to stop there.
“We are talking about expansions in the future,” Liu said. “We want to make sure everything’s complete, but we also want to build open worlds. I know when I was playing The Witcher 3 and I finished everything, I still want to know what everyone was up to. I think we’re going to have opportunities like that as well for Cyberpunk 2077.”
Cyberpunk 2077 will arrive on PC on April 16, 2020.
