CD Projekt Red slams rumours of a sale

"We think it deserves to be put to bed"

Witcher developer CD Projekt Red has acted quickly to combat rumours of a potential sale of the company to Electronic Arts.

"We usually don't comment on rumours but this one has become quite viral and we think it deserves to be put to bed," co-founder Marcin Iwinski told Eurogamer.

"We are not talking with anyone regarding selling CD Projekt Red or GOG.com. Period. And the payslip is a fake - it was not issued by our company."

Community manager Marcin Momot also responded to the rumours on social media:

For a company that supports it's customers more than any other, and has a lot to say about DRM, it is not surprising news like this comes out., Other AAA companies are running scared. In what way does Dragon Age Inquisition, or the upcoming Fallout 4 touch the level of detail and sophistication of the Witcher 3?! Either Bioware or Bethesda are just lazy, or they don't don't have the in-house skills. I believe it is partly both.

If anything I can see CD Projekt RED buying other companies. When you can bring a AAA title to market for 50% of your competitors costs and sell in similar units to those companies, you make a lot of money!

What a shame that commenters are resorting to the "lazy devs" slur on an industry website.
