The Witcher 3 studio has largely moved on to Cyberpunk 2077

CD Projekt RED emerged briefly to claim five Golden Joystick Awards earlier today, but now it's straight back to work on Cyberpunk 2077. And, to a lesser extent, The Witcher 3.

"The team is divided right now," Michal Nowakowski, CD Projekt SVP of business and publishing, told GR+ news guy Leon Hurley at the show. "There's a sizable team still working on [The Witcher 3: Blood and Wine], but an even more sizable team has actually been working on Cyberpunk for quite a while right now."

Nowakowski noted that Cyberpunk 2077 has been in the works since it was first announced back in 2012, though he did add that it was "very early development." CD Projekt Red hasn't given any hint of a release date for the sci-fi, open-world RPG (it's never even officially said the game's coming to this generation of consoles) but we'll hopefully hear more after Blood and Wine launches in the first quarter of 2016.

Beyond CDPR's Cyberpunk future? Nowakowski didn't rule out the possibility that the studio may one day return to the world of The Witcher, but he did make it clear that Geralt's story is over. And that there are no plans for a standalone gwent video game (sorry).

"What we've always been saying is that this is the end of the Geralt trilogy in the Witcher world," Nowakowski said. "Whether there's something around the corner, in the future, I think it's way too early to say."
