CD Projekt Red's next RPG, Cyberpunk 2077, is "far, far bigger" than any other game by the studio, says VFX artist Jose Teixeira.

Speaking to MCV, Teixeira said the studio is "really stepping into the unknown in terms of complexity and size and problems we encounter."

Based on the pen-and-paper RPG of the same name, Cyberpunk 2077 was announced in 2012, but CDPR has revealed scant details since then.

The already-gargantuan scale of The Witcher 3 helped the studio learn how to build sprawling RPG experiences.

"If anything, working on The Witcher 3 was a really good and often brutal learning experience. Cyberpunk is going to benefit greatly from it. I can almost guarantee it."

Teixeira was tight-lipped on a release date, however, jokingly claiming "we usually say the release date is 2077."
