Witcher and Cyberpunk giant CD Projekt RED opens new digs in Wroclaw

Polish games giant CD Projekt RED has revealed that it is setting up shop in Wroclaw.

The new studio consists of 18 developers from local developer Strange New Things. The firm will be helping out the games firm's other two locations in Warsaw and Cracow.

The studio will be headed up by Paweł Zawodny, the former CEO at Strange New Things.

“Wrocław is one of the biggest and most technologically advanced cities in Poland and a playing field for serious creative talent. I think the scope of our current and future projects, as well as the overall package we’re bringing in, will pull in people who were hesitant to move to Warsaw or Cracow," CD Projekt RED president and joint CEO Adam Kiciński said.

“The founding dev team of CDPR Wrocław is already pretty stellar, but I still can’t wait to see what talents we’ll discover in new people along the way.”

Zawodny added: “We’re pretty hyped to be on the spearhead of this new office. We know Wrocław inside out and it’s an amazing place to make games. The team is strong, and I’m sure we have both the experience and the creative firepower to make Cyberpunk 2077 an even better game."

and is going to be - surprise, surprise - helping out on CD Projekt's upcoming RPG, Cyberpunk 2077.

“Aside from their immense technological knowledge and artistic flair, the core team of CD PROJEKT RED Wrocław are just great people," said Cyberpunk 2077 director and head of CD Projekt RED Adam Badowski.

“CD PROJEKT RED is not a typical game developer — we put gamers, creative freedom and quality games above making business. These guys not only share this approach, but, much like the rest of the team, think that this attitude is essential to creating epic video games.” — Badowski adds.
