CD Projekt Red has seemingly weathered a storm of its creation, the chaotic launch of Cyberpunk 2077, which was ultimately redeemed through years of additional work culminating with the release of Phantom Liberty. With another Witcher game in development and a trio of other projects in the offing, it's an exciting time for the Polish company. It should come as no surprise to learn that the studio has no desire to be acquired by the likes of Sony or Microsoft.
CD Projekt Red CEO Adam Kiciński spoke to the Polish language outlet Parkiet (thanks IGN), unequivocally stating: "We are not interested in integrating ourselves into any larger entity". The executive explained that the company is in a strong position and expects its best days are still ahead. "Throughout our entire lives, we have worked towards the position we currently hold. We believe that in a few years, we will be even bigger and stronger."
It's easy to see why, as the company currently has four buns in the oven. Project Polaris, colloquially known as The Witcher 4 and the start of a new trilogy, is now the developer's primary focus, gearing up for full production. In addition, Project Sirius is a new game set in The Witcher universe featuring multiplayer, Orion is a sequel to Cyberpunk 2077, and Project Hadar will mark the company's first original IP, an exciting prospect indeed.
