Cyberpunk 2077 was just a warm-up says the team kicking-off work on the sequel

It's no secret that CD Projekt Red is already working on the sequel to Cyberpunk 2077, alongside a new trilogy of Witcher games, but according to Cyberpunk's narrative director, Igor Sarzyński, "2077 was just a warm-up," hinting that the team are looking to push the envelope even further in the sequel.

Posting to X, Sarzyński talked about his first day in the Boston office to "officially kickstart our Orion journey." For context, Orion is the codename for the next Cyberpunk game. He added he was excited for the project and that he was sure they "can make it something special."

It's a bold claim, given the chequered history of Cyberpunk 2077. It launched in a very rocky state, with console optimization issues, a slew of bugs and glitches, and a general lack of polish, such as a complete lack of meaningful police presence. These issues have all now been addressed over years of patches and the new Phantom Liberty DLC, but it's been a long road to get here.

That being said, the final product is nothing short of spectacular. There was always a glimmer of something special in Cyberpunk, especially in the characters and storytelling, but it's finally being done justice. Hopefully, the next Cyberpunk game skips the three years of debilitating pain, and that alone would be a huge improvement.
