WARSAW (Reuters) -Poland’s CD Projekt will actively look for merger and acquisition targets in its bid to become one of the top three video game makers in the world, it said on Tuesday.
The maker of Cyberpunk 2077, one of the most anticipated and derided games of 2020, also announced plans to transform its studio and change the way it develops new products, so that it can start its next high-budget AAA games production in 2022.
“We are focused on large-scale transformation,” Michal Nowakowski, CD Projekt board member told a conference call.
The company also said it plans free downloadable content (DLC) for Cyberpunk, which was highly expected by investors and players, who also had expected the Polish studio to present a plan to fix the game, which was bug-ridden when it was released in December.
The Digital Scapes team employs “around a dozen experienced game creators”, CD Projekt said.
