CD Projekt Red is coming to Vancouver. The Poland based studio recently announced that they were in the process of acquiring local studio Digital Scapes. Here is the press release they issued about the exciting expansion.
On 29 March 2021 CD PROJEKT signed a term sheet specifying the conditions under which it will acquire the Vancouver-based gamedev studio. Both companies have been in close cooperation since 2018.
– 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 – says Paweł Zawodny, Head of Production and CTO at CD PROJEKT RED. He goes on to add – We believe that the hugely talented Digital Scapes crew is the perfect foundation upon which to build a wider CD PROJEKT RED Vancouver team.
CD PROJEKT RED Vancouver will join three existing development teams at CD PROJEKT RED – based in Warsaw, Kraków and Wrocław – to jointly work on the Studio’s upcoming projects.
– 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 – remarks Marcin Chady, Vancouver studio head.
The Vancouver team employs around a dozen experienced game creators with various areas of expertise, including multiplayer development, programming and animation for all major hardware platforms.
