Among other things CD Project Red is doing now hadar (codename) – a game based on a new franchise. Perhaps, along with the universe, the game will change the genre? No, the developers are still loyal to the RPG.
This became known from a report to investors:
In terms of genre, we make certain types of games. I think it’s safe to assume that we want to keep making games in this genre, so you can imagine what to expect.
Recall hadar is at the stage of creating the setting, that is, the matter has not yet reached even pre-production. When developers start full-fledged development, Novakovsky cannot say.
According to Novakovskyidea hadar started thinking a few years ago. However, the creation of the game began only at the end of 2021:
Early concept work began in 2021. For the first time in our history, intellectual property is created by CD Project Red. It is important to understand that right now we are still working on the basic concepts and laying the groundwork for a new franchise.
CD Projectwhich employs more than 1,200 people, is also engaged in continuing Cyberpunk 2077 and three games “The Witcher”one of which is being worked on by the authors The Flame in the Flood and Drake Hollow from The Molasses Flood.
In the future, the company is just going to support three franchises: a new one (yes, we are probably waiting for another series), Cyberpunk and The Witcher.
