As we’re slowly approaching E3 2018 and the development process is surely ramping up, CD Projekt RED has announced a new strategic move in order to fasten the work on the much anticipated Cyberpunk 2077.
According to a press release, CDPR has indeed opened a new studio in Wroclaw, the fourth biggest city in Poland, thanks to the acquisition of the core team at Strange New Things. The acquisition is specifically targeted to increase the staff working on Cyberpunk 2077, which is clearly mentioned in the aforementioned press release.
Pawel Zawodny, Head of Studio at CD Projekt RED Wroclaw, said that “we’re pretty hyped to be on the spearhead of this new office We know Wroclaw 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.”
Adam Badowski, Game Director for Cyberpunk 2077 and Head of CD Projekt RED, added “aside from their immense technical knowledge and artistic flair, the core team of CD Projekt RED Wroclaw are just great people. CD Projekt RED is not a typical game developer — we put gamers, creative freedom and quality games above making business.”
“These guys not only share this approach but, much like the rest of the team, think that this attitude is essential to creating epic video games.”
The team in Wroclaw is composed by 18 people, who are said to have a creative knowledge on top of the competencies required to work on outsourcing assets and all the assistance job you’d expect from a new team added to the development of such a big game.
Cyberpunk 2077 still doesn’t have a release date.
