"extremely excited" to tap into local video game talent.
This is "another big step" in making "better and better RPGs" as they expand into Cracow, one of Europe's "cultural and scientific centers", and have no doubt they'll leave a "significant mark".
CD Projekt is very busy with the open-world RPG of The Witcher 3 and with the sci-fi rich Cyberpunk 2077. In RPG terms, CD Projekt RED is on track for a Nobel Prize.
The studio has curried enormous favour with PC RPG fans with their approach to 'servicing the community', which involves releasing rather big content updates at no charge. The original Witcher got a hefty overall to both content and game mechanics, catapulting CD Projekt into PC gamer good books.
"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 CD Projekt RED boss Adam Badowski.
The Witcher series from the studio is yet to disappoint and now they're trying their hand at sci-fi with Cyberpunk 2077, as opposed to the medieval fantasy setting of The Witcher. Can they deliver that same giddy RPG experience?
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt releases on PC, Xbox One and PS4 in 2014; Cyberpunk 2077 in 2015.
