Interview: CD Projekt Red on why fan support is so important

Digitally Downloaded writes: "By any standards of conventional games industry business wisdom, CD Projekt Red has successfully bulked the trend. This is a AAA-game development company that has been PC-first. It has avoided DRM like the plague, and has resisted certain DLC trends. It didn't even bother throwing in a multiplayer mode in its previous game, The Witcher 2.

And yet, despite this, this a very successful company, with a very large fan base and a growing digital distribution business in GOG.com." (CD Projekt RED, Industry)

Fantastic company that takes pride in its work & doesn't gouge & milk to make money. Worth a 100 Activisions & EAs.

If they ever have to join major publisher, they should choose 2K Games

Agreed. 2K is the most respectable out of the Big Publishers. EA,Acti, Capcom, Sega have committed many sins. Ubisoft also milk AC to the point it is becoming stale (still loving Revelations though) . The only bad thing 2K does is with sports games.

Other than that, they brought out The Darkness 2 and Spec ops, as well as giving Rockstar all the time they need with their games. Plus, Bioshock Infinite and Xcom. They are a brilliant company who still have some desire to create games with developer freedom.
