Despite the numerous issues Cyberpunk 2077 has encountered since its release, CD Projekt has stated that it is “totally, completely committed” to the ongoing development of Cyberpunk IP. Michal Nowakowski, CD Projekt’s VP of Business Development, reaffirmed the intellectual property company’s commitment during CD Projekt Group’s earnings announcement for the first half of 2022.
This comes after a significant Cyberpunk CD Projekt broadcast that gave some information regarding Cyberpunk 207’s future. The anime Cyberpunk: Edgerunners is scheduled to premiere on Netflix before that.
Even though Nowakowski doesn’t mention it directly, his remarks probably pertain to more Cyberpunk works beyond Cyberpunk 2077, whether they be new TV shows, new games (the recently purchased firm The Molasses Flood is creating a game based on CD Projekt property), or other works.
In addition to revealing that Phantom Liberty will be Cyberpunk 2077’s first and only planned expansion, CD Projekt also revealed the arrival of REDmod, an official modding tool that should breathe new life into the game. This was excellent news, but Cyberpunk users on the most recent systems learned that they would not be able to play the expansion and that PS4 and Xbox One development had come to a halt.
The anime Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, which premieres on September 13, is about a young street boy who wants to become an edge runner, an illicit mercenary. CD Projekt launched an update that puts players in the role of David Martinez, the main character of Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, to acclimate fans to the franchise.
