CD Projekt RED‘s Kraków studio will be focusing on two smaller projects, about 20 hours each. The newly announced studio will consist of a core team of about 20 people. CD Project RED’s managing director Adam Badowski confirmed the news to Gamasutra:
“This July we are opening an office in Krakow. As we informed in our strategy outlook some time ago, aside from The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and Cyberpunk 2077, the studio aims to develop two smaller (approximately 20h of gameplay) premium quality titles. Consisting of 20 people, the core team in Krakow will be responsible for developing one of these games.”
Even though the trilogy’s end is coming around, the writers are expecting Wild Hunt’s story to be the best yet. In an interview conducted by Game Informer (click the link to watch it), we get to hear about where the game begins, and where “Geralt’s new perspective on life will bring him.“
In a recent blog post by CD Project, tough choices are discussed.
The tough choices are whether or not you should include an idea, and what consequence that idea would have.
“Gameplay design is all about choices – every day we make dozens or even hundreds of decisions. Will we take idea A or B? You can’t eat the cake and still have it. A game designer has to think how to improve existing mechanisms and figure out how to do it. A wrong choice can decrease the game’s stability, spoil the fun of playing it or will extend the time of the work and production process.”
The blog will be used to post about games they’re working on, along with “making-of” articles. Additionally we will get first-hand information about available positions over at CD Project, along with information about new projects. It would seem from the posts in the blog that they’re looking for developers to develop a new game, which is untitled so far.
