The developers of the critically acclaimed Witcher franchise, CD Projekt RED, are opening up a new studio in Cracow, Poland. The goal of the new studio is to bolster the development of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and Cyberpunk 2077, two games I am really looking forward to.
“A new studio, new people and new energy – we’re growing and we’re extremely excited that we can tap into the potential that Cracow has to offer. We want to continue to make better and better RPGs and the new studio is another big step in that direction. Cracow, one of the cultural and scientific centers of Europe, is a really special place that will leave a significant mark on our games.” said Adam Badowski, Head of CD Projekt RED.
It has been great to watch this company grow, especially after picking up The Witcher on a whim from my local GameStop back in 2007 (which was probably my last PC purchase in a store). Here’s to great developers being successful!
