CD Projekt RED is expanding with a new studio. President and CEO Adam Kiciński announced today the opening of CD Projekt RED Wrocław, a new studio in south-western Poland that will be tasked with aiding the development of the eagerly anticipated Cyberpunk 2077.
“Wrocław is one of the biggest and most technologically advanced cities in Poland and a playing field for serious creative talent. I think the scope of our current and future projects, as well as the overall package we’re bringing in, will pull in people who were hesitant to move to Warsaw or Cracow,” says Kiciński. “The founding dev team of CDPR Wrocław is already pretty stellar, but I still can’t wait to see what talents we’ll discover in new people along the way.”
The core team at Wrocław is actually fairly small, forming from the ashes of the 18-strong Wrocław-based developer ‘Strange New Things’. They’ll be looking to make new hires now though as CDPR continues to escalate development of Cyberpunk 2077.
“We’re pretty hyped to be on the spearhead of this new office,” says Paweł Zawodny, the new head of studio at CD Projekt RED Wrocław. “We know Wrocław inside out and it’s an amazing place to make games. The team is strong, and I’m sure we have both the experience and the creative firepower to make Cyberpunk 2077 an even better game.”
It’s exciting stuff for Cyberpunk and Witcher fans, even if actual news of the upcoming game has been decidedly barren. We did have the official Twitter account teasing at the beginning of the year though, and CDPR is confirmed to be in attendance at Gamescom 2018 in August. Hopefully, we can hear something juicy on Cyberpunk 2077 by then.
