CD Projekt RED Partners Up With Digital Scapes For Cyberpunk 2077 Development
Cyberpunk 2077 developers CD Projekt RED has announced that it is partnering up with Digital Scapes on “creating and optimizing technological solutions for use in the development of Cyberpunk 2077.”
Digital Scapes is made up of veteran game developers that have worked at BioWare, Radical Entertainment, and Relic. The Canadian-based developers have worked on titles such as Company of Heroes, Warhammer 40,000, Dying Light and Prototype.
“Cyberpunk 2077 is our most ambitious project to date and we work hard every day to make it a creative and technological achievement,” SVP Business Development of CD Projekt RED, Michał Nowakowsi, said.
“The Digital Scapes team brings aboard a lot of talent, experience and technical knowledge, and I’m very confident our long-term cooperation will add plenty to the game.”
“We are both excited and honoured to work with CD Projekt RED, ” said Marcin Chady, Studio Head, Digital Scapes. Their incredibly creative and accomplished team of developers have been pushing narrative-driven, role-playing games to unprecedented levels.”
It looks like Cyberpunk 2077 will not be entirely developed in-house, which is normal as most AAA games partner up with other developers, either as a partnership or an outsourcing deal, to complete games. Earlier this year, CD Projekt acquired Polish developers Strange New Things to work on Cyberpunk 2077.
A huge portion of gameplay, initially shown only to the press at E3 2018 and gamescom 2018 is now available for anyone to watch, though it is still a work in progress.
Cyberpunk 2077 has no release date, or even a window, just yet.
