Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty Has the Most CD Projekt Staff Working on it

Project Polaris is second, with the number of developers ramping up, while Project Sirius is third despite recent layoffs for the team.

CD Projekt recently announced updated sales numbers for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, which has crossed 50 million sales worldwide. However, in its Q1 2023 earnings report, the group also provided updates on upcoming projects, like Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty. The expansion will be at Summer Game Fest Play Days in June for media to go hands-on.

As of April 30th, 2023, it has the largest development team, followed by Project Polaris, the next mainline Witcher game. Compared to December 31st, 2022, the number of developers on Polaris continues to grow. The same applies to “other projects,” with the team size noticeably increasing since December (though what they’re working on wasn’t specified).

Interestingly, the third largest is on Project Sirius, a Witcher spinoff developed by The Molasses Flood, which suffered layoffs earlier this month. Project Sirius was announced with over 60 developers onboard, and 29 have since departed. Time will tell if the next update reflects the reduced team size.
