Polish video game producer CD Projekt reportedly held a strategy meeting to discuss the companys roadmap for the rest of 2021 and looking forward into 2022. The company is determined to offer more updates, free downloadable content, and a present generation patch for Cyberpunk 2077. This is expected to allow the game to appear and run better on Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, as well as PS5.

It has been reported that further updates for its GWENT: The Witcher Card Game are also on the way, while a current-generation patch for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is also expected to arrive later in 2021.

However, the biggest news remains the restructuring of CD Projekt Red. The team is reportedly overhauling various processes, enabling the simultaneous development of two AAA games which indicates that the next Witcher and Cyberpunk games are expected to arrive sooner.

According to the credible sources, CD Projekts strategy meeting shared its vision for a highly flexible and unified team that can effectively work towards the development of two AAA games parallelly. This plan, named Red 2.0 would involve the development of proprietary Red Engine for supporting two franchises while ensuring simultaneous development of new Cyberpunk and Witcher games.

Apparently, CD Projekt Red is also focusing on expansion to effectively support this scale. For this purpose, the company acquired Digital Scapes, a support studio based in Vancouver, to be a part of the Vancouver team of CD Projekt Red.

The company will supposedly be working towards building a more caring and sustainable work environment. This follows the extreme crunch that was reported during the leadup to Cyberpunk 2077 release in December 2020.

The PC version of the game have recently received positive reviews however, other versions of the game faced criticism for several glitches, bugs, and performance issues. Subsequently, the game was then taken down from the PlayStation Store and has so far not returned.
