CD Projekt Red Working on Mobile Game
The developers of The Witcher series of games, CD Projekt Red, have announced they are working on a mobile game. The Polish development team have not yet revealed the exact nature of the game but an official announcement is expected soon. In a management report, translated from Polish by Eurogamer, the company stated:
For several months, along with an external partner, we worked on another, unannounced project, which we plan to launch this year. It’s a multiplatform mobile game, made with advanced technological capabilities of tablets and smartphones in mind. Thus, we are entering a completely new territory in terms of gameplay and business model, realising our strategic plans to enter the mobile gaming market.
CD Projekt Red co-founder, Adam Kicinski, shed further light on the decision to develop for mobile devices:
Smartphones and tablets are truly powerful platforms these days and are finally giving us the ability to develop mobile games we would like to play ourselves; games that are taking full advantage of newest smartphone and tablet technologies, and offer the quality level that we, as a studio, are always aiming to achieve.
The game is apparently based on one of the developer’s existing brands, so it could be some kind of tie-in to the recently delayed game, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. The only other game CD Projekt Red is known to be working on currently is Cyberpunk 2077.
