While CD Projekt RED are working on getting Cyberpunk 2077 to the stores as soon as possible, it is not the only AAA title they have in development. It is now confirmed they have another one in the works, but the name is not known yet.
Fans are eagerly expecting any bit of news regarding Cyberpunk 2077 but the slow development and lack of concrete info coming from CD Projekt RED may in part be caused by another AAA story driven RPG they have in the works.
In a huge management board report, CD Projekt RED have revealed the mysterious second title that is slated for release in the same time window as Cyberpunk 2077, between 2017 and 2021. Please don't let it be another three years of waiting for Cyberpunk 2077. You can find the info related to the 2017-2021 time window on page 26.

CD Projekt RED have shown their highlights that are planned during that time window, which include the release of Cyberpunk 2077, release of another triple-A story-driven RPG, further development of company's brands which includes additional media types and products, expectation of more than doubling the workforce of CD Projekt RED and establishment of their four local offices in order to ensure the studio's presence in ''key territories''.
Sadly, the report doesn't mention the name or the setting of that second RPG. Witcher 4 is highly unlikely as they have noted before they will not be focusing on the title for a while but a game in the Witcher universe focusing on someone or something else may not be excluded.

Additional media types and products CD Projekt RED mentioned in the report probably refers to the upcoming Witcher TV series, but what draws more attention is their expectation of more than doubling the workforce within the next three years.
This is a bold statement, which basically means they have a lot of faith in both Cyberpunk 2077's and the new RPG's success. We will see about that during E3 2018, I mean how good can the game be? One would think the studio made something that is considered by many players to be the best game ever.
