The development company for Cyberpunk 2077 is CD Projekt Red, a Polish company that became well known after releasing the popular game series The Witcher. Remarkably, the game is actually being partially subsidized by the Polish government which provided the company with seven million dollars USD.
The actual gameplay was developed with a lot of help from non-traditional developers, like urban planners and engineers who produced the game sounds from neural networks. The game was originally slated to be released in April of 2020, but when much of the world transitioned to working at home the timeline was pushed back since employees could no longer collaborate as easily. Keanu Reeves has actually been a large part of the development process, as his skills as an actor were used to create the image, voice, and movement of the game’s main companion.
