The CORSIKA 8 project is an international collaboration of scientists working together to deliver the most modern, flexible, robust and efficient framework for the simulation of ultra-high energy secondary particle cascades in matter. The main application is for cosmic ray air shower simulations, but it can also be applied to other problems in astro(particle)-physics, particle physics and nuclear physics. Besides a comprehensive and state-of-the-art collection of physics models as well as algorithms relevant for the field, also all possible interfaces to hardware acceleration (e.g. GPU) and parallelization (vectorization, multi-threading, multi-core) will be provided. We present the status and roadmap of this project. This code will soon be available for novel explorative studies and phenomonological research, and at the same time for massive productions runs for experiments.
