According to the developer Cyberpunk 2077, the canceled elements may appear in the sequel

Cyberpunk 2077 was an extremely expected game. CD Projekt RED studio, which included talented specialists, has already managed to become famous. Due to the fact that The Witcher trilogy was very successful, RPG was their bread and oil. At that time, Cyberpunk 2077 aroused incredible interest. The medieval setting from The Witcher is replaced by something more futuristic. But in the end, the release of the game turned out to be a catastrophic. There were so many problems and mistakes in it that the studio spent years to bring the gameplay to its own standards.

Naturally, after many years of work with patches and several small DLC, the game has changed. In addition, together with Phantom Liberty, update 2.0 for Cyberpunk 2077. At the same time, as in any other game, a series of mechanics and features did not fall into the project. The other day, IGN managed to talk with Pawel Mielniczuk, art director of Phantom Liberty.

During the conversation, the topic of rebellious functions was raised, and there was a question whether there was something that the studio did not have time to add to the game. More precisely, it was about functions that may have not been in the list of wishes while working on the main update 2.0 and extension Phantom Liberty. According to Paul, the developers never really end work on the game.

They say that ideas always appear, even after the deadlines. And without terms and financial obstacles, the development of video games may never end. Therefore, looking back, we can say that the studio probably has ideas and refinements that she would like to implement in Project Orion.

I think that as a developer you can never finish the game. There is always a better idea, a new opportunity, a thought that comes into the head at night, a day after the set period. Time and budget are the only factors that can stop the developer from improvement. But all these new ideas and concepts to further improve the game are meticulously fixed, and I am sure that many of them will certainly find their reflection in the process of developing the next part of Cyberpunk – the Orion project.

CD Projekt Red is currently working on Cyberpunk 2077 sequel. It is only known that the game is called Project Orion and is being developed in the North American studio. Otherwise, we have nothing to tell us. Most likely, it will be a game that we will not see in the near future. However, after the failure of the Cyberpunk 2077, the studio leadership probably wants the game to be prepared as much as possible for the exit and public show.
