Around that time, Valve’s storefront introduced a tiered revenue split system. For each title that has brought in over 50 million, Steam now takes 20% of its subsequent revenues. That means that from now on, CD Projekt RED will keep 80% of The Witcher 3’s sales on Steam.

Of course, CD Project RED has been doing great even before reaching that milestone on Steam. According to SegmentNext, the studio became the third largest company on the Warsaw Stock Exchange. This happened when the company’s capitalization exceeded $8 billion (31.52 billion PLN). The only two companies that are still ahead in terms of capitalization are PZU, a Polish insurance company, and PKO BP, Poland’s largest banking chain.
Folks at SegmentNext believe that the upcoming release of Cyberpunk 2077 might fuel further growth in the company’s stock price. So much, in fact, that the studio might end up at the top of the Warsaw Stock Exchange.
But even its current market valuation makes CD Projekt RED the second-largest video game company in Europe. It’s only surpassed by Ubisoft, which is worth $9.6 billion.
