Cyberpunk 2077 is the next action-RPG from CD Projekt Red and while the devs have said they are not going to talk about it, some minor details regarding the game’s development have been leaked.

The rumor comes from NeoGaf user, Boskkee, who claims that his sources have told him that the pre-production done for Cyberpunk 2077 till 2016 have been trashed as a new game director has been appointed.

The Game Director for Cyberpunk 2077 has changed after RED has finished Blood and Wine (screenshot below), and according to my sources – please treat it as a rumor, as I won’t reveal anything more – the preproduction done on the game before 2016 has been binned.

CD Projekt Red has high hopes for Cyberpunk as the studio has expressed that the game will be a bigger success compared to The Witcher 3.

According to John Mamais, a lot of developers in CD Projekt Red had worked on the Witcher series for a long time and they were kind of fatigued with the whole fantasy and medieval fantasy. He added that the developers are really excited to be working on Cyberpunk 2077 as it gives them something completely different to work on.

While Cyberpunk 2077 will not launch this year but the next game to be released by CD Projekt Red is GWENT The Witcher Card Game. There is no doubt that GWENT has been extremely popular among The Witcher 3 fans, but the developers did not anticipate that this mini game would be so popular among the players.

Cyberpunk is a Sci-fi action RPG in development at CD Projekt Red for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
