CD Projekt wants to remain independent
CD Projekt RED president and CEO Adam Kiciński told the Polish newspaper Rzeczpospolita that the studio intends to remain fully independent and is avoiding acquisition attempts.
In short, CD Projekt does not want to “become part of a larger entity”. While Cyberpunk 2077 had a troubled launch, sales were strong and CD Projekt's Witcher games are still selling well.
- Rocky launch "gave us a kick and motivated us to change"
- Cyberpunk 2077 updates pushed back into 2022
- PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S upgrades coming in 2022
- The Witcher 3 next-gen update is also due next year
Bought out: CD Projekt recently bought two smaller studios – The Molasses Flood and Digital Scape, now CD Projekt RED Vancouver. According to Kiciński, they are open to buying more studios in the future.
Teamwork: “The purpose of our acquisitions is to strengthen our development teams and gain additional support in implementing our strategy,” he said. CD Projekt also owns and operates GOG.com.
