Hi Elliott, This is a great breakdown and very generous in sharing your process and insights, you came a long way from the vending machine days!
Are you planning on releasing the UE4 project to the public? Or only builds? I'd love to play around with it in the editor if possible!
Last year National Center for Research of Development in Poland has awarded The Witcher developer CD Projekt Red 30 million PLN ($7 million USD) to help the studio improve several aspects of game development. Reddit user boskee took some time to study the official documentation and found out that there are several conditions behind the money. So the thing is that all four of the projects funded by the government must be fully completed by June, 2019.
At last, we got a release window for the studio’s next game, which should be Cyberpunk 2077. What is more, all the projects will be developed with RedEngine 4, the next version of the studio’s game engine.
Also, something strange is happening with Gwent. A post on CDPR’s Investors forum about CDPR’s communication in 2017 concentrating on Gwent has been removed.
We have to wait just two years to get something new from the creators of Geralt’s adventures and that is definitely a good thing.
