It seems like CD Projekt Red is hiring experienced developers for their new game, Project Orion as Dan Hernberg, who used to work at Amazon Games and Blizzard Entertainment, is now the executive producer, whereas, Ryan Barnard, known for his work at Ubisoft Massive and IO Interactive, joins as the design director. 

On the other hand, Alan Villani, who worked on Mortal Kombat games, will be the engineering director. And finally, Anna Megill, known for her work on games like Control and Dishonored: Death of The Outsider, is the lead writer, while Alexander Freed will assist with writing in the Cyberpunk 2077 sequel.

Well, Cyberpunk 2077 was released in 2020 after almost ten years of development. After its launch, Cyberpunk 2077 faced significant controversy due to its poor gameplay experience like bugs, performance, movement, etc. However, over the course of three years and multiple updates, CD Projekt Red has worked to improve the game, bringing it to its current state.

The redemption of Cyberpunk began with the release of the Netflix anime series “Cyberpunk: Edgerunners” by Studio Trigger. The show’s popularity, combined with ongoing updates, led to major improvements in the game’s mechanics. In 2023, an expansion titled Phantom Liberty, featuring Idris Elba was launched for PlayStation 5.
