CD Projekt is not for sale according to its president Adam Kicinski in a recent interview.
Kicinski recently discussed the details of their business and their investment options with Polish business newspaper Rzeczpospolita. The interview then came to the fact that the company was planning to sell after its controversial Cyberpunk 2077 launch.
“We have been saying for years that we plan to remain independent and do not plan to be part of a bigger entity,” Kicinski replied. “We are not looking for a strategic investor either.”
The newspaper then asked if the company was going to make a hostile takeover by buying shares, Kicinski revealed that they already had provisions that would prevent such things from happening. They’ve already recently invested in smaller companies like The Molasses Flood. They even got the Vancouver-based studio and renamed it CD Projekt Red Vancouver.
Kicinski explained that the reason for their investments is to strengthen their development teams. They also want additional support in implementing their strategy.
Speaking of Cyberpunk 2077, Kicinski said that CDPR is still confident in the game. In fact, they think it will turn out to be a good game later on.
“Cyberpunk 2077 is the biggest, most ambitious and certainly the most complicated project in our 27-year history,” he said. “In almost every aspect we have tried to take it a step further, as we have done with every Witcher game that we have released.
“Releasing a game in a new franchise comes with a lot of challenges and risks, especially when the concept is so complex. We’ve brought to life a huge, vibrant futuristic city called Night City, where the characters’ non-linear stories unfold.
“We are proud of many aspects of the game, but as we know, not everything went our way. Nevertheless, the notoriety of Cyberpunk that we have managed to develop is enormous, and the universe of the game, its characters and its details have fans all over the world.
“We believe that in the long run Cyberpunk 2077 will be seen as a very good game, and like our other titles it will sell for years to come, especially as the hardware gets more powerful over time and as we improve the game. Game.
“We’re working on updates all the time, and we’re also working on a version for the latest generation of consoles. Of course, the original version taught us a lot. It gave us a boost and motivated us to make changes that will make us better in the future.
