CD Projekt RED Confirm They Still Plan To Release Two AAA Titles by 2021

By James Kearle, 1 month ago
In the midst of developing their upcoming action-RPG Cyberpunk 2077, CD Projekt RED has been rather busy. Not only has the Polish studio established a dedicated division in Wroclaw and partnered with Digital Scapes to speed up development, but also revealed in 2018 that they plan to release another "AAA" release by the close of 2021. With no further mention of these plans in the last year, a report this week from VG247 has reiterated that this plan is still on.

There has been no official word of what CD Projekt RED's mysterious second game might be, but VG247 has stated that a new Witcher title is "possible". Considering the fact that studio developed its namesake through the acclaimed The Witcher Series, and that recent spin-off releases such as Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales and Gwent: The Witcher Card Game have impressed critics/fans, it wouldn't be too far fetched for another Witcher game to be on the horizon. With various sources indicating that the series will live on with or without Geralt of Rivia, the world will have to wait and see whether the Witcher will see the light of day again as a fully-fledged AAA RPG experience.

Equally, Cyberpunk 2077 received a highly positive response from both critics and CD Projekt Red fans, winning many accolades including "Most Anticipated Game" at this year's Golden Joystick Awards. Is it possible the studio could be seeking to strike whilst the iron is still hot, and introduce another new IP to the action-RPG market?

Whilst no-one can be certain of what CD Projekt RED are up to, their on-going commitment to release two AAA titles in the near future does make one thing clear - speculation won't stop any time soon. What do you think CD Projekt RED might be up to? Let us know in the comments.
