While Activision and EA fire hundreds of people, the guys from Poland are opening up new positions and build new offices.
Gamesindustry.biz reported that CD Projekt has recently revealed plans to create 250 new positions. CFO Piotr Nielubowicz revealed that the company has purchased a plot of land, where it will build around 3000 meters of office space. With the new building, the company hopes to employ 250 new people for CD Projekt Red and GOG. Apparently, these developers will be working on Cyberpunk 2077 and other unannounced games.
The company planned the expansion, while revenues and profit saw a substantial decline: “Revenue for 2018 was down from €109.1 million the year prior to €85 million, while profit fell from €47.1 million to €25.6 million”. The company also spends a lot of money on R&D: around €56 million in 2018.
CD Projekt continues to draw most of its revenue from the sales of Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Last year it generated over €25 million. About 80% of the sales were digital.
