Digital Scapes, which has been working with the Cyberpunk 2077 creators for three years, will be renamed to CD Projekt Red Vancouver. The studio will join three other development teams based in Warsaw, Wroclaw, and Krakow to work on the company’s upcoming projects.
The acquisition is a part of the company’s new strategy of developing multiple AAA games at once. “In addition to contributing to our projects the new team will help us perfect our technologies and will broaden our competencies in this respect,” CD Projekt Red CTO Paweł Zawodny said in March.
Digital Scapes was founded in 2012 by games industry veterans from BioWare, Relic, and Radical Entertainment. The studio employs a dozen developers, specializing in animation, programming, and multiplayer.
