CD Projekt RED president and joint CEO Adam Kiciński in a statement revealed the company is working on two AAA games. 

"We are revisiting a world which is an integral part of CD Projekt’s history," said Kiciński. "Thus, as announced last year, CD Projekt RED has begun parallel work on two AAA projects."

One of the two AAA games in development at CD Projekt RED is the next entry in The Witcher series. It was confirmed to be in early development earlier this year. It isn't known what the second AAA game is.

Sounds like the equivalent of a couple having a terrible relationship and deciding having a baby will solve the problem xD

Lmfao. But to be fair, atleast they've put last gen behind them. I'd say that accounted for 80% of the problems.

Nope, 100% of their problem was project management and false promises.

Definitely. I can't imagine last gen having been CDPR's problem here. I haven't played Cyberpunk yet, but it certainly sounds like the problems were rooted much more deeply. The last gen versions and any impact they might have had on the game were probably just the tip of the iceberg.

Sure you can't put the blame on a console, but they had envisioned a game that was ambitious and limited by last gen. Or they just don't have top class engineers and designers to work around. But i'm sure if they didn't have the headaches making the game try run on ps4, we probably could have seen the game release a year or 2 earlier and maybe with more content. But at the end of their day, it was their fault, yet I feel now they can breath easy with last gen gone.

Eh. I disagree, but since I don't really have much to back my view, I'll just leave it at that.

They knew the platform, they had released Witcher 3 on it, they had numerous years to work that version, and there are games of similar scope that didn't suffer from same development hell and promisses.
Not to forget that new gen version took like an additional year even so it seems like they had even more issue making it.

I think the biggest issue was their in-house engine, so it's definitely good news they've switched to UE5.

You're right that releasing cyberpunk on last gen consuls was a bad idea. But that's not the fault of the consoles. That's the fault of the developers and publisher. They were not required to release the game on PS4 and Xbox One. That's a decision they made. They also had many years, a lot more time than the newer generations actually, to figure out how to make the game work, or determine that it wasn't going to work and scrapping it.
