CD Projekt RED Confirms Layoffs For Project Sirius Dev The Molasses Flood

CD Projekt RED has revealed that 29 employees have been let go, many of which were working at the Project Sirius developer. The confirmation comes following reports yesterday from a number of ex-employees stating on Twitter that they had been let go from the developer.

Speaking with VGC, the studio confirmed that 21 employees in the US have lost their jobs, while a further eight have also been let go who were based in Poland.

Because the project changed, so has the composition of the team that’s working on it – mainly on The Molasses Flood’s side.

CD Projekt RED had previously revealed that it had completed a new framework for Project Sirius, and is also working on a number of other games in The Witcher series. Chief among these include a brand new chapter in the franchise directed by Sebastian Kalemba, as well as a full The Witcher Remake using the Unreal Engine 5.

All three games are in the early stages of development at this point, and The Witcher 4 (not its official title) isn’t expected to arrive until around 2025.
