CD Projekt RED keeps expanding and, after opening a new studio in Wroclaw, has purchased another Polish developer. Spokko, this is the name of the developer, is currently working on an “ambitious” mobile game.
As revealed by the makers of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and Cyberpunk 2077, Spokko approached CDPR with an idea involving an existing IP from its portfolio. The management was so appealed that decided to invest in the team.
“They approached us with an interesting idea based on one of our brands–an idea we decided to invest in,” CD Projekt boss Adam Kicinski said in a statement (via GameSpot).
“We want to expand our business with innovative concepts and solutions, and the vision presented to us by the Spokko team represents an entirely novel creative angle.
The new studio will be largely independent. We intend to provide it with a distinct identity and creative autonomy, in line with the philosophy which has long guided the actions of the CD Projekt Group.”
Spokko co-founder Maciej Weiss added that he is “elated” about this partnership and added that the new game is “far more advanced and ambitious” in comparison with “the more casual titles that the team made before.”
“This time around we want to work on a far more advanced and ambitious project, offering new possibilities for gamers,” Weiss said. “It’s a very exciting challenge.”
