About CD Projekt RED

CD Projekt RED was established in February 2002 as the sister company of CD Projekt. The studio’s mission is to become the world’s leading RPG developer, producing games that combine the best characteristics of the genre with original ideas.

One of CD Projekt RED’s guiding principles is to remain in close touch with players, listening and responding to their opinions as they relate to the company’s games and how they are delivered. The studio’s first game was The Witcher, which was enthusiastically received by fans (over 1.5 million copies sold), and by the professional media (more than 100 awards and distinctions). CD Projekt RED currently has a staff of almost 95 focused on The Witcher 2.

CD Projekt RED is part of the Optimus S.A., a publicly traded company listed on the Warsaw Stock Exchange (OPT). The Optimus group also includes GOG.com, an innovative world-wide digital distribution platform for PC classics, and CD Projekt, a leading games and DVD/Blu-Ray distributor in the Polish market.
