Cyberpunk 2077 and Witcher Devs Expand to Make Smaller Games
CD Projekt RED is branching out with the opening of a new studio based in Krakow, Poland.
Unlike its larger counterpart, which is currently working on two major titles, the smaller studio will head up the development of two smaller games lasting around 20-hours in length, each.
In a statement to Eurogamer, Adam Badowski, Managing Director at CD Projekt RED, stated that the studio will house around 20 developers and develop smaller games.
“This July we will open an office in Krakow,” he said. “As we informed in our strategy outlook some time ago, aside from The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and Cyberpunk 2077, the Studio aims to develop two smaller (approximately 20 hours of gameplay) premium quality titles.”
The company’s main offices are based in Warsaw, around 180 miles away from the new studio in Krakow. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and Cyberpunk 2077 are currently in development at the main studio.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is slated for a 2014 release, with the latter title to follow the year after.
