CD Projekt Red has confirmed that it has no interest in being bought out or part of a larger corporation, and wants to maintain its independence.
In an interview with Parkiet, CD Projekt Red CEO Adam Kicinski said, “We are not interested in being incorporated into some larger entity. We have worked all our lives to reach our current position. We believe that in a few years we will be even bigger and even stronger.”
Kicinski also confirmed that CD Projekt Red don’t have any acquisitions itself planned at the moment, and isn’t interested in mergers where the only goal is to consolidate financial results as he doesn’t see the value in that. This has been CD Projekt’s Red stance for several years so Kicinski’s continued insistence about independence aren’t surprising.
He reiterated CD Projekt Red’s independence as one of its most valuable assets, and will continue to be so in the next few years as it chases ambitious plans. Currently, CD Projekt Red is working on several projects, including The Witcher 4, codenamed Polaris, and a remake of the first Witcher game. A sequel to Cyberpunk 2077 and a new original IP, codenamed Hadar, are in development as well.
CD Projekt Red laid off several employees last year but Kicinski said that employment will remain stable as staff moves between Cyberpunk and Polaris. However, Kicinski said he expects employment to increase in 2025.
