Cyberpunk 2077 development in full swing, will feature "planes, bikes and robots" that you can pilot

Cyberpunk 2077

Update September 5, 2016: Development for The Witcher 3 studio's next big RPG, Cyberpunk 2077, is well underway, according to a post from developers CD Projekt RED.

Because CD Projekt is a publicly traded company, they are required to answer any shareholder questions. There's even a thread for just this in their official forums.

Our list of upcoming PC games should all release before 2077.

Spotted and translated by NeoGAF, one poster asked the developers how many people were working on Cyberpunk 2077.

"In your recent presentation you have mentioned that there are over 100 people working on Gwent," said the poster. "I understand that the remaining employees work on CP2077 (minus tech support for TW3)."

A reply from the studio said: "There are currently more game developers working on Cyberpunk 2077 than on The Witcher 3 in its most intensive month."

The reply lines up with previous comments from the studio, suggesting Cyberpunk 2077 will be bigger and better than The Witcher 3

This follows the recent job postings, looking for people to design the game's driveable vehicles, as seen below. 

Original Story August 29, 2016: There's not much information out there about Cyberpunk 2077, the next game from The Witcher 3 developers, CD Projekt RED. The developers have been content so far with suggesting it'll be bigger and better than their last big game, but new job postings hint that it'll be a very different beast. 

CD Projekt RED are currently hiring for a couple of jobs based around designing vehicles for the near future RPG.

The first of these is for a senior vehicle artist, who will be responsible for the visual side of the game's different machines. "As a senior vehicle artist," says the job posting, "you will be responsible for modelling incredibly complex vehicles, planes, bikes, robots and mechanics."

The Polish studio are also hiring for someone to take care of the gameplay side of things, suggesting the player will be able to pilot and take control of the game's various vehicle types. "The person in this position will cooperate with gameplay & level designer teams to create the whole architecture of vehicle related code," the job listing says, "and the physics of driving / flying in those vehicles."

Hopefully CD Projekt RED learned a few things from Roach, your horse in The Witcher 3, who has a fondness for turning upside-down and performing all kinds of weird, unexpected behaviour when faced with a hill. Judging by the massive leaps of improvement between their games so far, though, CD Projekt RED will absolutely nail it.

Yes but will there be dinosaurs (or maybe robot dinosaurs)?
