About CD Projekt RED
Established in 2002, located in Warsaw (HQ), Kraków and Wrocław, Poland, CD PROJEKT RED was born out of raw passion for video games.
The studio’s founders: Michał Kiciński and Marcin Iwiński, both pioneers in video game distribution in Poland in the 90s, decided to employ their gaming industry experience in video game development. In 2007, The Witcher was born.
After the success of the first installment of the game, the studio set sail for bigger leagues and began working on a sequel. Hitting PC in 2011 and Xbox 360 a year later, The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings became one of the most critically acclaimed role-playing games in the genre’s contemporary history. What started out as a small, skeleton-crew studio is now a premiere RPG developer, employing over 550 people from all around the world and setting standards for the whole industry in terms of quality of games and the approach to gamers.
What’s most important, we’re still driven by what made us succeed: we take our passion for games and harness it to make the best video games in the world.
