Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher developer CD Projekt Red is ‘not interested’ in being acquired: “We value our independence”

Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher developer CD Projekt Red has cleared the air on rumors that they might be acquired in the near future, with Chief Strategy Officer (formerly CEO) Adam Kicinski stating that the company is “not interested” in being acquired in a recent interview with Polish publication Parkiet.

“These are just rumors,” Kicinski said. “We have always had a clear position, supported by the regulations included in the statute.”

Kicinski added that he sees CD Projekt Red only continuing to grow in the future, and that growth does not include being bought out by a larger entity.

“We are not interested in being included in any larger entity,” Kicinski continued. “We have worked our whole lives to get to the position we have now. And we believe that in a few years we will be even bigger and stronger. We have ambitious plans and we are passionate about what we do. We value our independence.”

Kicinski continued, “Independence is really attractive, it’s a kind of freedom.”

Although CD Projekt Red is ‘not interested’ in being acquired, the company also doesn’t foresee itself making any acquisitions of its own in the year 2024 either.

“We do not plan any acquisitions at this time,” Kicinski explained. “Of course, we are open to ideas that could accelerate the implementation of our strategy. But we are not interested in purchases that would only aim to include the acquired companies in our group and consolidate their financial results. We don’t see the value in it.”

CD Projekt Red’s highly-anticipated Cyberpunk 2077, though highly-criticized upon release for the game’s seemingly unfinished state and in-game instability, has seen much of its negative sentiment turn around thanks to CDPR’s continued updates and the recent release of an expansion, Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty.

What do you think of the fact that CD Projekt Red is ‘not interested’ in being acquired? Do you think it’s better for the company to operate under its own autonomy rather than under the influence of a bigger company? Let us know in the comments.

Ninja Gaiden was my rite of passage at an early age. After finally beating that game (and narrowly dodging carpal tunnel) I decided to write about my gaming exploits. These days I enjoy roguelikes and anything Pokemon but I'll always dust off Super Mario RPG, Donkey Kong Country and StarFox 64 from time to time to bask in their glory.
