'The Witcher 3' Might Be Complete, But CD Projekt RED's 'Cyberpunk 2077' Is Still A Long Way Off
With The Witcher 3 over and done with, CD Projekt RED is ready to move on to its next project: Cyberpunk 2077. We already know plenty about the upcoming game: it's going to have a futuristic setting and be even larger in scale than anything The Witcher 3 has ever offered.
Anyway, that's the good news. The bad? In what shouldn't be a surprise to anyone, CD Projekt RED has made it abundantly clear that the game is nowhere close to completion yet.
On its official Twitter account, the company revealed that it is currently looking for a producer for Cyberpunk 2077.
Take full control and become a PRODUCER for Cyberpunk!

Following the link on the tweet takes users to a career page, where they can see all the requirements for the role. Specifically, the developer is looking for candidates with two years of experience in movies or Triple-A video games. Candidates must have the ability to handle the day-to-day responsibility of managing production, as well as the ability to effectively work across teams involved in a game development life cycle.
Once on board, the successful candidate will be required to engage in tasks with which those two years of experience have given them plenty of exposure, such as acting as a liaison between various production departments and helping to build the teams, including interviewing and hiring new candidates.
Of course, beyond the prestige of working for a company that has produced one of the most critically-acclaimed games of all time, working with CD Projekt RED has its own set of benefits. Aside from standard vacation days every year, the successful candidate will be offered a relocation package and Polish language lessons — a necessity in the event that it's a foreigner who makes the cut.
As stated before, the fact that CD Projekt RED is looking for a producer means that Cyberpunk 2077 is now ready to go into development, but it's still a long way off.
However, even if fans have to wait a while before they can sink their teeth into the studio's next RPG, there are still plenty of other offerings that they can use to bide their time. First off, there's The Witcher 3, which will no doubt be a go-to title for many years to come, and then, there's the Gwent standalone card game that will be arriving in the near future.
