CD Projekt Red have already noted their primary focus is on Cyberpunk 2077 and a new job opening testifies to that. They are looking for a Combat Designer capable of delivering memorable combat encounters. As opposed to the other kind.

Cyberpunk 2077 is going to have a great combat system should CD Projekt Red's vision come to fruition. In a job opening description for a Combat Designer position they have described their ideal candidate as a person who will manage to deliver '' memorable combat encounters, that thrill and excite our players.''

Potential candidates for the job should know that CD Projekt Red are strictly looking for a person who would join their development team in Warszaw, Poland. They are heavily stressing the necessity of aptitude when it comes to working with AI, and in this bit they also let out a tiny detail that might be of interest to people aboard Cyberpunk 2077's hype train - companion AI. Firs class ticket, of course.

Looking back, there was a hint of companions long ago right on the teaser trailer, shoved into our faces. It was looking pretty, and it was getting shot at by the police as it appeared to have committed a massacre with its retractable blades. As a Psycho Squad operative was about to execute the android, the screen shifted to Cyberpunk 2077 logo and a few seconds later a plot twist was shown to us - the android actually got recruited.

Not to derail any longer, the excerpt from CD Projekt Red's page that sparked the companion speculation noted that one of the Combat Designer's daily tasks would be to ''take encounter 'shells' delivered by other teams and using our proprietary visual scripting language; script combat AI and flow, memorable moments/set pieces and companion AI.''

Should a candidate decide to relocate to Poland in order to work with CD Projekt Red, they have ensured a step by step assistance and a "Relocation Package" for foreign employees that would stay in their local area.
