Neowiz, the publisher behind Lies of P, has made a significant move by acquiring a 21% stake in BLANK., a Polish game studio founded in early 2023 by former CD Projekt RED developers. The investment, totaling $17 million, solidifies a strategic partnership between the two entities. With the shared objective of boosting their presence in the global console market, Neowiz and BLANK. are destined to become formidable players in the industry.
