CD Projekt RED has confirmed that it is now continuing development of ‘Project Sirius‘, an as-yet-untitled spin-off set with the high fantasy universe of The Witcher. The project, first announced in October of 2022, was paused in March, with CDPR telling investors it required re-evaluation.

But in a Regulatory Announcement posted yesterday afternoon, the Polish developer noted that the title was back on track, with some of the development funds from the first quarter of the year written off entirely. According to the statement, Project Sirius now has a “reformulated framework” which is “[better] aligned with [CDPR’s] strategy.” The written-off development funded is noted as being in the region of $650,000 USD.

As to what form Project Sirius will take, that remains known only to CDPR and the title’s developer, Boston-based studio The Molasses Flood. Back in October, the project was described as having a broader scope than traditional Witcher titles, with a focus on both single and multiplayer support as well as an “innovative” take on the Witcher universe.

One element that is for sure, however, is that the new title is still a long, long way from hitting store shelves, and CDPR will remain currently focused on its long-time-coming Cyberpunk 2077 DLC, Phantom Liberty, which is still yet to confirm its (supposed) 2023 release date.
