During a strategic presentation CD Projket announced that it has multiple new games in development over the next decade. The details on those games are slim, yet the company did announce a Cyberpunk 2077 sequel is under development with the codename “Project Orion” and will “prove the full power and potential of the Cyberpunk universe” when it’s released.
Additionally, a new trilogy within the Witcher universe is also in various stages of development at CD Projket. These future Witcher titles are being developed under various codenames such as Project Sirius, Project Polaris, and Project Canis Majoris. In their strategic presentation CD Projket announced it was also working on a new standalone IP, with the codename Project Hadar.
In the presentation, CD Projket explained it has started a new Parallel AAA Development strategy this year with the plans to foster a healthy and sustainable work environment for their employees. As, the company expands its core IPs, CD Projket plans to be more transparent, boost development abilities, and introduce more multiplayer experiences into their games.

Currently in pre-production, it is being developed by Flame in the Flood developer The Molasses Flood and has 60+ people involved in its creation.
Project Polaris is described by CD Projket Red (CDPR) as a story-driven open world RPG built upon the legacy of the Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Currently, their are 150 people working on it at CDPR. This game will be the foundation for the Witcher trilogy. The goal of CDPR is to deliver the two sequel games within a 6-year window.

Beyond, these projects CDPR continues with their multimedia approach with continuing expansion into TV and film. The company’s Cyberpunk Edgerunners on Netflix has been a huge success.
