CD Projekt Red, the renowned company and developer of Cyberpunk 2077 has announced a new acquisition. CD Projekt Red acquired Digital Scapes, and now counts a total of four in-house development studios. Digital Scapes has been in a close relationship with CD Projekt Red since 2018, providing mild support for Cyberpunk 2077. It’s good to know that the company has become one with CD Projekt Red.
Digital Scapes is also the first development studio to be acquired by CD Projekt Red that does not reside in Poland. Being the first Canadian studio in the property of CD Projekt Red, it will carry the name CD Projekt Red Vancouver. This acquisition is supposed to help CD Projekt Red focus on future projects better, but also help on their engine development and other technologies.
Pawel Zawodny, Head of Production and CTO at CDPR has stated the following:
The well-known Digital Scapes team is our trusted partner. For three years we have been closely working together, and we trust them completely. Digital Scapes have put in a great deal of work during the making of Cyberpunk 2077, assisting with development of the game and optimizing its various features. In addition to contributing to our projects the new team will help us perfect our technologies and will broaden our competences in this respect.
Vancouver’s studio head, Marcin Chady also addressed the acquisition as mutually beneficial and believes that their contribution in the area of gameplay and technology will be very effective.
We are very excited to join a studio that forges the incredibly engaging, vastly scoped experiences, such as The Witcher trilogy and Cyberpunk 2077. We believe our contribution in the area of gameplay and technology can make them even more captivating. Being a Polish Canadian, I personally take great satisfaction in building bridges between Canadian and Polish game development industries. This is a great opportunity for Canadian developers to get involved with CD PROJEKT RED’s incredible IP and for CD PROJEKT RED to tap into Canada’s deep talent pool and game-making craft
