Watch Out, Ubisoft

Witcher 3© CD Projekt

Witcher 3 studio CD Projekt is now Europe’s second-largest video diversion company, according to a latest marketplace valuation.

It was valued during $6.8 billion around a month ago, though that figure has leapt to $8 billion given afterwards interjection in no tiny partial to a extraordinary blurb opening of Witcher 3 on a Switch and Steam, as good as recognition of a Witcher code being lifted to hitherto secret levels by Netflix’s renouned live-action series.

The imminent recover of Cyberpunk 2077 – that is approaching to be one of 2020’s biggest games – could also have contributed to a conspicuous arise in a company’s value. All of this means that a Polish organisation is second usually to French hulk Ubisoft in terms of financial value – Ubisoft is now valued during around $9.6 billion.

What creates this expansion all a some-more conspicuous is that a association hasn’t published anywhere nearby as many titles as Ubisoft has. Founded in 1994, CD Projekt has published only 7 games: The Witcher, The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings, The Witcher Adventure Game, The Witcher Battle Arena, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Gwent: The Witcher Card Game and Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales.

As we can see, CD Projekt’s business is now formed on a adaptions of Andrzej Sapkowski’s Witcher series, and it stays to be seen if Cyberpunk 2077 – itself formed on an existent property, namely a Cyberpunk 2020 tabletop complement combined by Mike Pondsmith – has a same legs as a epic anticipation franchise.

Still, notwithstanding observant that it would pierce divided from Geralt in a past, a association recently sealed a uninformed understanding with Sapkowski that suggests we’ll be saying some-more Witcher games in a future. The good times are here to stay, it would seem.
