Neither The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt nor Cyberpunk 2077 will be out this year. Heck, the latter hasn't even got a date. Still, CD Projekt RED is hard at work developing both, and they've opened a new studio in Cracow (or Krakow), Poland, to help take some of the weight off.
The new studio will support CD Projekt Warsaw in their development of Wild Hunt and Cyberpunk 2077. Adam Badowski, head of CD Projekt RED, remarked:
"A new studio, new people and new energy - we’re growing and we’re extremely excited that we can tap into the potential that Cracow has to offer. We want to continue to make better and better RPGs and the new studio is another big step in that direction. Cracow, one of the cultural and scientific centers of Europe, is a really special place that will leave a significant mark on our games."
Earlier in June, CD Projekt had announced their plans to open the Cracow studio, and mentioned a 20-hour game in the works. Somehow, I doubt that's referring to Cyberpunk.
For those that missed the initial announcement, Cyberpunk 2077 is a newly unveiled RPG based on the tabletop franchise. The debut CG trailer is worth a look. Just be ready to wipe your drool off the keyboard.
While the sci-fi RPG is short a release date (it'll be a while), The Witcher 3 will be out in 2014 on next-gen consoles and PC.
