Yesterday we discovered that President and joint CEO of CD Projekt RED Adam Kiciński and CFO Piotr Nielubowicz had spoken to Polish business site Bankier.pl and revealed a little more than they should have about Cyberpunk 2077. We did say at the time their words had been run through Google Translate so there may be a little miscommunication, and CD Projeckt have issued a statement to that effect.
“We’re working on three Cyberpunk things—over the main game and over two more,” was what Google Translate told us had been said.
“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,” a CD Projekt rep said in an email to PC Gamer.
“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.”
That has cleared up the quote about the five teams. What CD Projekt do not address are the other comments such as the mention of ” trybem wieloosobowym Cyberpunk 2077″. We have double checked and that does say there’s a multiplayer mode for Cyberpunk 2077.
There is also this quote, “Nasz następny duży projekt będzie też w uniwersum ‘cyberpunkowym’.” Now you don’t really need any translation software to work out what that says, but again we have checked, and it does say their next project is also in the Cyberpunk universe, so there is a second game planned, perhaps this is Spokko team’s unannounced mobile project.
TL:DR: Google Translate did not correctly translate what the teams at CD Project are working on, but it did in the case of a multiplayer mode and a second game.
