Approximately half of CD Projekt Red’s workforce has shifted to work on The Witcher 4, also known as Polaris, the company has confirmed. Furthermore, more developers are presently being transferred from Cyberpunk 2077, which may indicate that more devs have been shifted to Polaris. The confirmation was made on Tuesday during the company’s Q3 earnings announcement.

During the company’s Q3 earnings report, CD Projekt Red confirmed that nearly 50% of its development team, roughly 330 developers as of October 31, 2023, were working on the the much-anticipated sequel known as Polaris. Adam Kiciński, the CEO, further revealed the company’s anticipation of having over 400 developers dedicated to Polaris by mid-2024.

The Polaris team already stood at 260 members by July 31, 2023, constituting more than a third of CD Projekt Red’s entire workforce. And now with the release of Phantom Liberty, the development on the game has significantly picked up a fatser pace.

As indicated in the report, over a quarter of developers are marked as “in transfer,” transitioning away from Phantom Liberty. Moreover, CD Projekt Red previously announced that a considerable portion of these team members would join the Polaris team alongside the Cyberpunk 2077 sequel, codenamed Orion, and other projects.

Well, the Witcher series’ upcoming game is expected to begin a new trilogy for the franchise, which was first announced to be in production back in 2022. However, regarding the game’s and The Witcher’s overall future, the developer has not released many details. All that is known, though, is that it will be an open-world role-playing game that carries on The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt’s history.

It will be years before fans are even close to playing the next game, given it was only announced last year. However, the studio has stated that the next trilogy will be released in full within a six-year period following the release of Polaris.

However, it is important to note that, naturally, the development bump does not indicate that a new Witcher game is imminent.
