The creator of Witcher games and the founder of GOG becomes one of the Poland’s biggest companies.
CD Projekt, the parent company of CD Projekt Red, is all about success. The creators of Witcher and Gwent games started 2015 with a share price at 17PLN ($4.18), but then rocketed to a point of 70PLN ($17.20) per share.
NeoGAF member boskee counted some numbers to find out that this leads to a total market cap of more than $1.6 billion, which makes CD Projekt one of the biggest companies in Poland. For example, as of this moment Capcom has a market cap of $1.38 billion. It is an unbelievable growth with Witcher 3, its Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine expansions, and GOG being a major part of this success.
PC Gamer did some research to look at other game publishers market caps:
- Konami: $5.89 billion
- Square Enix: $3.52 billion
- Focus Home Interactive: $152 million
- Activision-Blizzard: $40.38 billion
There is no doubt the company will continue its growth with titles like Cyberpunk 2077 to beat higher caps of Square Enix and Konami. We’ll just have to wait for a year or two.
