No, CD Projekt isn't working on three Cyberpunk games

No, CD Projekt isn't working on three Cyberpunk games

News that Polish games giant CD Projekt had not one, not two but three games set in the Cyberpunk universe appears to be false.

Local news outlet reported that the firm's president Adam Kiciński said there was a trio of Cyberpunk titles in the works. However, these quotes had come through Google Translate - which is why didn't cover the story - and it turns out the translation to English was not accurate.

"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," CD Projekt said in a statement.

"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."

Cyberpunk 2077 was initially announced in 2013 with a bombastic re-reveal taking place at the end of Microsoft's E3 2019 conference. 

CD Projekt CEO Marcin Iwiński has said that pre-orders for the dystopian sci-fi RPG are "way higher" than those the company saw for its previous release, 2015's The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, hardly surprising when - per research from Ico Partners' Thomas Bidaux - it was the most-mentioned title at E3 2019 in media coverage. 

Oh, and the breathtaking Keanu Reeves is playing a lead role in the game, which is nice.
