Work has started on CD Projekt RED's next game - It's probably a new Witcher title
While Kicinski didn't overtly say that it was a new Witcher title, he stated that "We have two worlds and within these worlds we want to create games - therefore all the games planned so far are either 'Witcher' or 'Cyberpunk'", which is a clear indication that a new Witcher game is in the works.
While pre-production on a new game has started, the Studio's main focus is Cyberpunk 2077, which is due to release on September 17th, 2020. After Cyberpunk 2077 launches, CD Projekt Red's two main teams will remain focused on developing the game's multiplayer mode and expansion content. CD Project Red's smallest team will focus on the development of their next RPG, but only after Cyberpunk 2077 releases.
CD Projekt Red is fully committed to Cyberpunk 2077, and isn't interested in splitting its development resources before the game releases.
We have already been working on another single player game. We currently have a relatively clear concept about what it is. However, we do not want to spend time on it at this moment. After the work is done on Cyberpunk 2077, we’ll start developing our next game
Our projects last 4-5 years, it's hard to imagine doing a large RPG in two years. It seems risky for quality, because quality takes time.
