CD Projekt Red has always been very receptive and encourages the development of mods for Cyberpunk 2077. But, now, the developer goes further, hiring several modders to help improve the game officially.
The news was announced in the Cyberpunk 2077 mod creation community on Discord. Some well-known names in the community will work directly with the company. They are: Traderain, Blumster, Nightmarea and rfuzzo.
Despite working with CDPR on an official basis in the post-release development of CP2077, the modders will not effectively be employees of the developer. They are registered with Yigsoft, a smaller company, headed by Traderain and Nightmarea themselves. CD Projekt hired Yigsoft.
The announcement was made by Traderain, who is actually called Hambalkó Bence. He didn’t give details on what the new work will be like, just saying, “we’re going to work on several projects related to the Cyberpunk 2077 backend and the game’s support for mods.”
With its huge maps, futuristic aesthetics and varied loot system, Cyberpunk 2077 is a game that has caught modders’ attention since its first trailers. The game’s release issues seem to have stirred up the community even more, which is now keen to “fix” the game to bring it closer to their expectations. It seems that now all this work and dedication is going to pay off for some of them.
