CD Projekt, the firm behind The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077, is reportedly the most valuable video game company in Europe. The Polish organisation has apparently overtaken Ubisoft in terms of market capitalisation, and is now worth a whopping $8.13 billion. The aforementioned French publisher sits at $8.12 billion.
It's worth noting that CD Projekt is also responsible for PC digital games marketplace GOG, but it's still crazy to think that the company's value has rocketed so quickly. Indeed, it was valued at $6.8 billion back in December 2019, with reports saying that the firm's stocks had risen by a staggering 21,000 per cent over the last decade.
With Cyberpunk 2077 set to be another huge hit for the company -- assuming it meets expectations -- the future's certainly looking bright for CD Projekt. It'll be fascinating to see where it goes from here.
Give me The Witcher and Cyberpunk over the next Ghost Far Creed game any day
Quality over quantity

"It's worth noting that CD Projekt is also responsible for PC digital games marketplace GOG"
This right here makes all the difference.
Good for them (I have great respect for them), but the comparison with Ubisoft is still apples to oranges.
GOG is a great, user-friendly Steam alternative. Well-deserved.
Just started up my months-old save of TW3 again on PC and was almost immediately startled by how beautiful everything was when I exited the building I was on. I had last saved in Kaer Morhen, and I was greeted by that gorgeous set of snowy mountain peaks almost immediately.
It's not a great open world on a mechanical level, but I've yet to see one with better art design.
This is good news if only because they have gamers interest at heart unlike Ubisoft...
@carlos82 is that Tom Clancy’s: Ghost Far Creed? 😂
They flipping deserve to be bigger than Ubi. All they do it churn out sh*t copy and paste games every year. Gone are the days of a quality splinter cell game.
@Kidfunkadelic83 Let's be fair here. Yes, a lot of Ubis games are crappy, and they have been known for some shady pay to win things in the past. There are worse companies out there in gaming for sure. They also have a creative side too when you see them release things like Starlink. I also appreciate how they run sales frequently.
@SlippingBack I defenately dont deny that there are worse companies out there. Imo EA are right at the top of the tree. I do appreciate some stuff that Ubi have done tho to be fair (starlink, rayman,mario+rabbids) so my comment was a bit harsh.
Can I have a time machind and invest in their stocks 10 years ago?
Hopefully! They start release more games! I know they are taking there time,! But let me throw money at you.! Since they should be the role model of game company's!
It may "be still crazy how...", but running a successful digital marketplace with plenty of third publishers on it kinda remains the elephant in the room here.
Yeah, I think GoG is the reason here. I’m sure there a bonus from being a developer, but they’re a storefront like Steam or PSN here first before a developer. It’s like focusing on Half-Life more than Steam when talking about Valve’s worth.
@Amin1998 was going to write exactly this
Maybe Ubisoft could claw back if they would actually finish Beyond Good and Evil 2.
