Rumor: Cyberpunk 2077 Will Feature Flying Vehicles; CD Projekt Red Aiming to Triple Krakow Studio Size
Thanks to NeoGAF user Nirolak, we now have (potentially) a bit more information about CD Projekt Red’s upcoming RPG Cyberpunk 2077.
When looking at a job listing on the developer’s site, Nirolak noticed that the developer is looking for a Gameplay Programmer to join its studio in Warsaw. Further, the person in this position would cooperate with Gameplay & Level Designers to “create the whole architecture of vehicle related code, and the physics of driving/flying in those vehicles.” Obviously, this is big news because it heavily suggests that Cyberpunk 2077 will have some type of driving and flying feature in it, or at the very least, CD Projekt Red is toying with the idea of adding such systems to the game.
But wait there is more. Another listing for a Gameplay Designer shows that developer is also aggressively expanding. According to the listing, the developer’s studio located in Krakow, which was founded in 2013 and functions as a creatively independent studio working closely with the Warsaw team on its core properties (like Cyberpunk 2077), is also currently aiming to double or even triple its size in a very short time.
According to CD Projekt Red’s website, the Krakow studio currently boasts roughly 30 employees, which means it could be jumping anywhere from 60-90 in the near future.
In other recent and related news, CD Projekt Red has come out and said Cyberpunk 2077 will be “really, really, really fu**ing badass.” Additionally, the developer also revealed that Cyberpunk 2077 has more developers working on than The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt did at even its peak.
