Cyberpunk 2077 was not the revolution that we imagined after so many years of development and advances in events by CD Projekt. The disastrous debut was followed by a series of updates that gave it a better face but in the end the feeling is that it did not exploit its full potential, it was left to be. Despite this, the Polish company has future plans for the franchise, including a sequel, but it seems that we are a long way from knowing about it.

The sequel to Cyberpunk 2077 will begin its development in 2024
During a recent session with investors (via Tweak Town), CD Projekt reported on the status of Project Orion, the code name for the Cyberpunk 2077 sequel that will be the responsibility of the newly founded studios of the Polish company in Boston and Vancouver. According to CD Projekt, the next chapter of the franchise will enter the research and development phase in 2024, that is, it is at the beginning of its process and if we take into account how long a AAA takes in these times, it is sure that they are missing many years to see it as a reality.

On the other hand, this announcement comes with bad news for those who expected more from Cyberpunk 2077 as CD Projekt reported that Project Orion development efforts will be fully focused once the Phantom Liberty expansion is released, which will happen sometime. moment of the remainder of 2023, which implies that the work around the eventful first installment will have come to an end.
The expectation is that the debut of Phantom Liberty brings with it a major update that improves the experience in Night City for the last time, but once that happens, everything will be said for this title that aimed to be historic but did not survive its hype.
