On Tuesday, Witcher and Cyberpunk 2077 developer CD Projekt Red shared their roadmap for the next several years.
During a strategy update for investors, CD Projekt Red (CDPR) announced several new projects related to The Witcher and the Cyberpunk 2077 series, along with a completely new IP.
Four new Witcher titles planned
As announced during the presentation, the previously teased new entry in the The Witcher series will, in fact, be the start of an all new trilogy "built on the legacy of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt".
CDPR aims to deliver all three games within six years following the release of Polaris, the code name for the first title in the trilogy. It is developed by CD Projekt Red themselves and is currently in a pre-production phase.
Next, they also announced a new innovative take on The Witcher universe, currently codenamed Project Sirius and developed by the recently acquired studio 'The Molasses Flood'.
Lastly, Project Canis Majoris is yet another entry in the series. It's a story-driven, single-player open-world RPG developed by a third-party studio of ex-Witchers veterans.
Cyberpunk 2077 sequel planned
In addition to the previously shown expansion, CD Projekt Red also announced a sequel to Cyberpunk 2077.
Not much is currently known, except for the codename Project Orion and the claim it will "prove the full power and potential of the Cyberpunk universe".
Going by the recent increase in players, in parts due to the anime, it seems there is enough interest for a full-fledged sequel.
Complete new IP in the works
Finally, while only in the conceptual phase, CDPR announced the development of a third IP to join the The Witcher and Cyberpunk 2077 series.
There is currently no further information regarding Project Hadar, except it has been in a planning phase since late 2021.
Some smaller announcements

- CD Projekt Red announced they would introduce multiplayer to their upcoming titles;
- They are opening a new studio in the United States called CD Projekt Red North America;
- Co-Founder and Joint CEO Marcin Iwiński is stepping down and will join CDPR's board as chairman.
