Cyberpunk 2077 developer CD Projekt Red shared some unfortunate news today. As part of an "organizational update" the developer says that they have recently laid off around 100 employees. These employees accounted for roughly 9% of CD Projekt Red's total workforce.

CD Projekt Red says that they have been overstaffed. The studio found that there just wouldn't be any new opportunities for these employees "based on current and expected project needs."

The outcome is the studio parting ways with around 100 people, which is roughly 9% of the entire team. This will not be immediate as some employees will be let go as late as Q1 2024 but, in the spirit of transparency, we’ve chosen to share the information now. We want team members to have ample time to process and adjust to the change, and we’ve also made sure to offer everyone a comprehensive severance package.
