In May 2012, when Cyberpunk 2077 made its debut, it quickly sparked a lot of attention. After the announcement, the game’s production began, and it took almost 8 years for it to reach its December 10, 2020, release date. When it was finally released, Cyberpunk 2077 fell short of the anticipation generated over all those years. Due to the numerous issues, many gamers stopped playing the game because they could not play it.
A miracle for Cyberpunk 2077, update 1.5 restored the game to life, helped it hit an all-time Steam peak of 119,256 concurrent players, and helped it become the best-selling game on Steam. It repaired numerous critical issues with the game and the Netflix anime series Cyberpunk: Edgerunners.
Due to the game’s popularity, CD Projekt formally revealed Cyberpunk 2077: Orion, the prequel. The Cyberpunk 2077 sequel, however, won’t begin pre-production until 2023, according to Adam Kiciski, president and co-CEO of CD Projekt, who announced during the company’s third-quarter earnings conference.
Production on the Cyberpunk 2077 sequel would begin after the release of the Phantom Liberty addition for Cyberpunk 2077, which is projected to happen sometime in 2023.
The Cyberpunk 2077 sequel won’t be coming out anytime soon, so. We hope that the delay won’t be as long as the wait for Cyberpunk 2077 if pre-production for the game doesn’t start until 2023 and after the expansion.
Additionally, CD Projekt Red is engaged in numerous other projects, including the upcoming Witcher remake and a brand-new trilogy. It appears that the following years will be exciting for fans of CD Projekt Red. The Cyberpunk 2077 prequel as well as the Phantom Liberty expansion are eagerly anticipated. We now only have this small amount of information, but we’ll keep an eye out for additional Cyberpunk 2077-related news in the future.
