The Witcher dev forms new studio in Poland

New CDPR office to "bolster the development" of The Witcher 3 and Cyberpunk 2077

The Witcher developer CD Projekt Red has opened a new studio in Cracow, Poland, it confirmed today.

The firm said the expansion will help to "bolster the development" of its two major RPG projects, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and Cyberpunk 2077.


CDPR boss Adam Badowski commented, "We're growing and we're extremely excited that we can tap into the potential that Cracow has to offer.

"We want to continue to make better and better RPGs and the new studio is another big step in that direction. Cracow, one of the cultural and scientific centers of Europe, is a really special place that will leave a significant mark on our games."

While Cyberpunk remains largely under wraps, The Witcher 3 was given a strong presence at E3 in June this year, with an impressive gameplay trailer following confirmation of its support of both the Xbox One and PS4.

The game will also arrive on PC, and has a vague launch window of 2014.
