As a reminder, Hadar (codename) is the first CD Projekt RED game based entirely on its intellectual property. Development hasn’t started yet: the team is thinking through the universe.

According to Nowakovsky, the idea of ​​Hadar came up a few years ago, but the early stages of conceptual work on the project didn’t start until late 2021. The team isn’t going into pre-production yet.

When that will happen, the VP didn’t say, but hinted at big plans for Hadar: “It’s important to understand that right now we’re still working on the basic concepts and laying the groundwork for this new franchise.”.

As for the Hadar genre, Novakovsky didn’t answer the question directly, but clarified that after The Witcher and Cyberpunk, the new franchise will also be an RPG.

“When it comes to genre, we make certain types of games and I think it’s safe to assume that we want to keep making games like that, so you can imagine what kind of game we can expect.”said Novakowski.

In addition to Hadar, which currently has a small team working on it, CD Projekt RED is busy adding Phantom Liberty to Cyberpunk 2077, its sequel codenamed Orion, and Polaris, a new installment in The Witcher.
