CD Projekt probably wants to make it the company’s good tradition to hire modders. It’s been revealed that four modders will join the Cyberpunk 2077 developer and together help bring the game “to the next level.”
The news was shared on the Discord modding community (via Reddit) on August 30.
The modders will join CD Projekt RED under company Yigsoft, founded by Traderain and Nightmarea. The team will also include Blumster and rfuzzo. Together the modders will work on the Cyberpunk 2077 backend and its modding support.
Prior to this, Traderain and Nightmarea have been working on WolvenKit for almost six years. It is a mod editor for games on RED Engine. The modders created WolvenKit as a tool for The Witcher 3, but it now also supports Cyberpunk 2077, thanks to CP77Tools developed by rfuzzo.
CD Projekt RED is known for keeping an eye on the modding community. Philipp Weber has been working on mods for The Witcher 2 before joining the company. He is now the studio’s lead quest designer.
When I worked on my Witcher 2 mod in 2013, I never believed that a few years later I would celebrate my 5-year (almost 6!) anniversary at CD Projekt Red!https://t.co/bakGFJKPbG pic.twitter.com/YEjvcRh09c
