It might be hard to believe, but CD Projekt Red's ambitious take on Mike Pondsmith's dystopian Cyberpunk universe — which was officially revealed by the Polish studio over eight years ago — has finally gone gold.
That's right, CDP's unique open-world RPG is now ready to be sent to manufacturing for mass production.
The base version of Cyberpunk 2077 may have been finished, but CD Projekt Red is still developing their opus magnum to make it a truly polished and enjoyable experience. Unfortunately, it comes at a price, as the team is forced to work six days a week to live up to the high standard set by The Witcher III: Wild Hunt.
Although CDP has failed to avoid excessive crunch, the studio is planning to split 10% of its annual earnings among employees to make sure that "everyone is well compensated for every extra hour they put in."
Considering that the development of Cyberpunk 2077 is technically completed, it's safe to say that we will learn more about the spiritual successor to Deus Ex — which was supposed to hit stores back in April — in the near future. In the meantime, take a look at this new artwork starring Keanu Reeves' Johnny Silverhand:
