Translated details taken from a yet-unpublished interview with the development team at CD Projekt RED reveals that the company has a dark fantasy project under development that is further advanced than the recently announced Cyberpunk 2077.
The information comes from the official Witcher forums
, which has taken details from the Twitter feed of Piotr Gnyp, a journalist who has interviewed Adam Kicinski, one of the producers at the studio, for Gadzetomania.
It’s not clear whether the new fantasy project is linked to The Witcher in any way, but the journalist describes it as being “dark.”
He also says that both the new game, which lacks a name, and Cyberpunk 2077
are being created for next-generation consoles, from both Microsoft and Sony, and are bigger in scope that the entire Witcher series up until now.
It also seems that CD Projekt RED is planning on working on smaller game projects during 2013 and that Cyberpunk 2077 might get an official launch date for late 2014.
Piotr Gnyp also says that The Witcher series will arrive on the PlayStation line from Sony but not during the current hardware generation.
Cyberpunk 2077 is seen by the development team as solid enough to support an entirely new role-playing game series and it seems that CD Projekt RED is also thinking about getting into the iPhone game market.
All the information should be taken with a grain of salt until the team offers official confirmation.
CD Projekt RED has managed to impress gamers with The Witcher, an action role-playing game series that blended a complex universe with unique mechanics and a well-developed main character.
Cyberpunk 2077 is set to use the same approach, with a lot of choices and consequences for the player, but use a near future setting based upon a pen-and-paper game.
