A recent barrage of rumors regarding CD Projekt Red working on multiple Cyberpunk games have been debunked during a recent statement released by the developer to PC Gamer.

The rumor regarding multiple games rooted from an interview between Polish financial site Bankier and CD Project Red executive Adam Kiciñski. The interview mentioned that the company’s various teams are now spread out and assigned across three games. This also includes games currently in development and work for expansions on the developer’s free to play digital card game, Gwent.

With the interview being conducted in the developer’s mother tongue, the Google Translation more or less mangled it. This of course caused the commotion and led to the assumption that there were multiple Cyberpunk games releasing. Three games, to be exact.

Through an email to PC Gamer, a CD Projekt Red rep once and for all cleared the air regarding the rumors and clarified the initial interview with Bankier.

"We currently have a total of five teams working on a number of projects, with three focusing on the development of Cyberpunk 2077. These include CD Projekt Red Warsaw and Kraków, who are handling the main game, as well as the Wrocław studio, where around 40 industry specialists are engaged in technology R&D. . . A separate, dedicated team at the Warsaw studio is handling the development of Gwent. The final team is Spokko, which is currently working on a yet unannounced mobile project." a CD Projekt rep revealed in the email.

It’s not surprising news that a lot of CD Projekt Red fans have an interest in expanding the Cyberpunk 2077 universe, either through sequels or through expansions, similar to their monster-hunting RPG The Witcher 3. The only thing this recent piece of information confirms is that any hopes of expansions or a sequel are still on the backburner for the meantime. It is understandable, though, as the main game hasn’t even released. Despite this, here we are, clamoring for the next big thing from the RPG focused developer.

It also helps to quell the rumors when you think about Cyberpunk 2077 and its very long development cycle – if there are indeed multiple games in the pipeline, we are probably still a couple of years away from them actually materializing.

Cyberpunk 2077 will be launching across multiple platforms on April 16, 2020.
