Yeah Witcher sold more than anyone thought. Just like Fallout 3 to Bethesda, they made the property, the original was just influence.

Not to mention I know nothing of CyberPunk 2033, yet it is hyped before a reveal trailer.

Yeah Witcher 3 sold a ton of copies. In total they surpassed 25 million copies from the trilogy. Cyberpunk 2077 is gonna be awesome. Did you get the 2033 from Metro 2033? lol That's also a sweet game.

They really deserve after all their hard work though, they have crazy big ambitions for their games but they make it work and they do it right (see Witcher 3 DLC).

With CD Project RED's history I'd be ready to pre-order CyberPunk before it's even revealed! :D

A trailer for Cyberpunk 2033 has been released long back... Even Ciri spoke about it in Witcher 3 :D

Wow. STAY AWAY EA. STAY AWAY. DO NOT ACQUIRE + SUBSEQUENTLY DESTROY THIS STUDIO.

Sorry to shout but the idiots that run EA proceed to destroy gaming. BTW thanks for destroying Bioware, and the MAss Effect franchise EA.

EA has ruined some of the best companies for sure. Going back to the early 90's till now.

I'm there with you, but very optimistic that will never happen, at least if CDPR continues to deliver like it does. It recently became the 5th-largest game dev in revenue. Let's not forget CDPR also is very public and explicit about its ways, miles away from EA's perspectives, only if it goes bankrupt, etc.

"The company opposes DRM in video games, and hopes that free downloadable content becomes an industry standard. CD Projekt considers maintaining their independence one of their most important strategies." That is from them, from when they founded GOG, another success.

Add to those the fact that the founders are still there and always reinforced those ideals. I know, when we talk about corporate everything is possible, but these guys are still in charge there, that's why I'm optimistic EA will never get its dirty hands on them.

Said that, RIP Maxis, Westwood, Bullfrog. I miss you all so much.

Well deserved. I remember playing the Witcher 1 and 2. They have evolved over the years

I say hold. Gwent is getting popular in China and they are about to release a major franchise soon.

SmielmaN162d ago

If it's worth 2.3 billion now they might be able to sell for almost double. 4 billion would be more than enough to go make a new game without any corporate types telling you you can't do certain things.

Just my two cents anyways lol
