CD Projekt says to expect more major titles with increased frequency in the future

There’s no denying that the success CD Projekt has had with its major titles — namely The Witcher and Cyberpunk 2077 — has been impressive, but now the Polish video game publisher is looking to release said titles in a more timely manner.

CD Projekt was asked during its quarterly earnings call on Tuesday whether or not their company “had the bandwith” to focus on developing more than one major title at a time, and CDPR revealed that not only are they currently working on more than one title at a time, but that they want their release schedule in the future to be “less lumpy” as well.

“We already worked on two projects at the same time when we worked on [Cyberpunk 2077 DLC] Phantom Liberty because that was a game-sized project with almost 300 people working on it, and at the same time we have already been working on Polaris, so we’ve had an experience of working on more than one project,” explained joint CEO Michał Nowakowski.

“And we are working on more than one project at this time as well. There is Cyberpunk 2 being developed in Boston, there is Polaris being developed predominantly here in Europe, and obviously we have other projects, with other teams like Project Sirius, also in Boston with The Molasses Flood.

“And there is The Witcher 1 remake done in cooperation with Canis Majoris, so you can definitely expect us to release more titles and the cadence of launches is something we definitely plan to increase, although I will obviously not comment on what is the space between the projects time wise.”

CDPR provided a bar graph which defined the breakdown for how many CDPR employees were working on upcoming projects in the earnings report, with 407 developers designated to Polaris, the tentative name for the upcoming Witcher project (the first in a purported new trilogy), and over 50 for Orion, the follow-up to Cyberpunk 2077. 39 employees are allocated to Orion, a Witcher spin-off project, as well as 20 towards an all-new IP codenamed Hadar.

What do you think of the fact that CD Projekt says to expect more major titles with increased frequency in the future? Are you looking forward to the sequels to The Witcher and Cyberpunk 2077? Does the increased frequency of the games’ releases mean that the games will be launched in bug-riddled, unfinished fashion like many gamers lamented with Cyberpunk 2077‘s release? Let us know in the comments.

Ninja Gaiden was my rite of passage at an early age. After finally beating that game (and narrowly dodging carpal tunnel) I decided to write about my gaming exploits. These days I enjoy roguelikes and anything Pokemon but I'll always dust off Super Mario RPG, Donkey Kong Country and StarFox 64 from time to time to bask in their glory.
