During its initial and hurried release, Cyberpunk 2077 opened itself to multiple glitches, various FPS drops, and overall an unfinished experience. Despite the bad sales and the multiple hold-offs that the company had to face, CD Projekt Red is gearing up for a sequel to the initially bad but now stable Cyberpunk 2077.

Cyberpunk 2077 Gets A Sequel Despite Bad Reviews

Once the image of a game is made, it cannot be unmade. Despite the now stable version of the game available, the initial game that came out in 2020 left bad blood between the players and CD Projekt Red. The Polish game developers were however given a green slip since they are also the creators of The Witcher game series.

CD Projekt Red, the studio behind The Witcher trilogy, recently took to Twitter to announce a sequel to the nefarious Cyberpunk 2077. The sequel that is currently in the works has been given the name Project Orion and will be reportedly based in the same post-apocalyptic universe as its protagonist Johnny Silverhand.

Keanu Reeves will once again likely take on the role of Johnny Silverhand but this time, the people expect a finished game with no glitches and FPS issues since the company will have learned its lesson by now. There have been no further details given regarding the plot or the release date but a DLC of the game titled Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty will soon release to the public.

Along with the announcement of the DLC expansion titled Phantom Liberty, the Polish studio has also revealed another trilogy set in the Witcher universe of Geralt of Rivia. The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt which was released in 2015 earned a whopping 200 awards and put the name CD Projekt Red among the top companies.

The names of the games have been kept under wraps but the codenames for the games in the Witcherverse are Project Polaris, Project Sirius, and, Project Canis Majoris. So far, there haven’t been any details released as of yet but the people will surely be excited to once again dive back into the guns-blazing world of Johnny Silverhand or the monster-fighting world of The Witcher.
