A job posting for a Cyberpunk 2077 sequel has been listed by CD Projekt RED on its official website. It’s surprising that the studio would be so blunt to state so explicitly that it’s looking for people interested in making a “Cyberpunk 2077 sequel,” especially when the Phantom Liberty DLC and we suspect more DLC for the original game aren’t even out yet. CD Projekt RED revealed news about a Cyberpunk 2077 sequel, along with new The Witcher games, in October 2022.
New Boston studio will be a part of the Cyberpunk 2077 sequel
The job listing is for a spontaneous application to gauge interest in joining CD Projekt Red’s newest studio in Boston to work on a sequel to Cyberpunk 2077. They are asking for applicants to drop their resumes, which will kept confidential in accordance with EEO guidelines.
As previously reported, this sequel has been given the codename Project Orion and will follow the Phantom Liberty expansion for the original game. It was announced around the same time as the wonderful Cyberpunk: Edgerunners anime on Netflix, which caused an influx of new players to try the game.
According to the product outlook description, the sequel looks to be a direct follow-up to the first game and won’t be some kind of spin-off or DLC.
