CD Projekt has announced they’ve acquired Vancouver-based studio Digital Scapes Studios and rebranded them to CD Projekt RED Vancouver.
CD PROJEKT RED Vancouver is joining CD Projekt’s three existing development teams – all based in Poland across Warsaw, Kraków and Wrocław, and will jointly work on their upcoming projects.
“The well-known Digital Scapes team is our trusted partner. For three years we have been closely working together, and we trust them completely,” said says Paweł Zawodny, Head of Production and CTO at CD PROJEKT RED. “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.”
He added, “We believe that the hugely talented Digital Scapes crew is the perfect foundation upon which to build a wider CD PROJEKT RED Vancouver team.”
“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,” said Marcin Chady, Vancouver studio head. “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.”
CD PROJEKT RED Vancouver is currently employing around a dozen experienced game developers with varying areas of expertise, including: multiplayer development, programming and animation for all major hardware platforms.
