Fans may have found the answer through a overlooked clue. Igor Sarzynski, narrative director, hints that the first installment was just a warm-up, promising an exciting sequel.
What city will be the backdrop for Cyberpunk 2077’s sequel?
Details on the second part are scarce, encouraging players to hunt for hidden clues. A recently discovered hint suggests Chicago as the setting for Cyberpunk 2, known as Project Orion. Contrary to assumptions, this idea is not unfounded, with in-game posters hinting at swift travel between Night City and Chicago, potentially placing the events around the infrastructure’s 2080 opening.
As previously explained, it’s a clue, not an official confirmation, so treat it with caution. The origin is unclear, with some claiming to notice it since the launch of Cyberpunk 2077, while others place it in early 2023. The community is divided, especially among those who claim to have spotted it after the latest update. The abundance of ads in the game makes it easy to miss. However, with community attention drawn to it, the search is on. Despite the persistent mystery, player engagement in such quests is always enjoyable to witness.
An ambitious sequel on the horizon?
As mentioned earlier, Cyberpunk 2077 has been described as a warm-up. CD Projekt, responsive to fan feedback, aims to address the first installment’s shortcomings. Anticipated changes, particularly in character origins (Corpo, Nomad, Street Kid in 2077), will have a more significant impact on the adventure.
However, patience is required. Cyberpunk 2 is far from ready, despite intensive studio efforts. In October, the game was still in the conceptual stage. “This project is currently in the conceptual stage. It will be developed by a group of veterans tasked with improving Cyberpunk 2077 and creating the Phantom Liberty expansion,” said Adam Badowski, Chief Creative Officer at CD Projekt. According to our information, its release is not expected for several years.
