Cyberpunk 2077 - CD Projekt Red Establishes Partnership with Digital Scapes

When Cyberpunk 2077 was making the rounds at conventions earlier this year, some of us wondered about the nebulous at that point multiplayer component of the game. And while we still don't have anything solid to report there, this open press release on CD Projekt's website announces their new partnership with Vancouver-based studio Digital Scapes that specializes in AAA multiplayer development. You do the math there.

CD PROJEKT RED, creators of The Witcher series of games, announce the establishing of a long-term strategic cooperation with Vancouver-based studio Digital Scapes. The partnership will focus on CD PROJEKT RED’s upcoming futuristic role-playing game — Cyberpunk 2077.

Founded by industry veterans hailing from BioWare, Radical Entertainment and Relic, Digital Scapes is an ambitious video game development studio specialising in AAA multiplayer console and PC game development, development tool creation, asset production, and cloud computing. Digital Scapes team members worked on blockbuster game series like Company of Heroes, Warhammer 40,000, Dying Light, Prototype, and more.

“Cyberpunk 2077 is our most ambitious project to date and we work hard every day to make it a creative and technological achievement. The Digital Scapes team brings aboard a lot of talent, experience and technical knowledge, and I’m very confident our long-term cooperation will add plenty to the game,” says Michał Nowakowski, SVP Business Development, CD PROJEKT RED.

“We are both excited and honoured to work with CD PROJEKT RED.
