Cyberpunk 2077 is one of the biggest releases of this generation. CD Projekt Red took a freaking nine-year period to make this game a reality. Now, among the buzz of The Witcher 4, this open-world title still holds a special place among the millions of fans. However, the journey of Cyberpunk wasn’t that smooth initially.

The game stumbled right after its launch in December 2020. After its release, the title was infected with bugs and glitches, making all the efforts in the long eight years go in vain. That’s when the Phantom Liberty DLC comes in, which revived Cyberpunk‘s fortunes in September 2023. Now, it seems the end of the era of this popular open-world title.

And now it seems there is nothing more to work on, as as of April 30, 2024, there hasn’t been a single person working on this game for the first time in more than a decade.

After a disastrous beginning, Cyber Punk 2077 pulled off a grand comeback after the game-changing Update 2.0, which brought the Phantom Liberty DLC. This expansion came with some highly wanted and unique features, loved by all the fans, like a new perk system, advanced AI, and many more.

Then came Patch 2.1, Patch 2.11, and Patch 2.12, which fixed a lot of the remaining issues, including the myriad bugs, and that’s how it all wrapped up for Cyberpunk 2077. CD Projekt Red is looking for the sequel to this game, codenamed Orion, with 56 people working on it.

A few months ago, on February 29, 403 developers were working on Polaris too, which shows CD Projekt Red is quite serious about this title. 407 out of 630 developers on a single project indicate that the development process is in full flow.

However, the interesting part is that the company hasn’t yet fully moved into production regarding Polaris. In a video accompanying CD Projekt Red’s latest financial results, CEO Piotr Nielubowicz stated the same.
