Recently a rumor has spread. The rumor has caused a lot of panic in the gaming community and there is a good reason for it. CD Projekt Red has been praised for being such a community driven development studio, especially since the release of The Witcher 3, but according to a rumor, EA were looking into buying out the entire CD Projekt Red team.
If this plan were to go ahead, EA would essentially have full control over all of CD Projekt Red's future content, which, as you can imagine, has struck fear in a lot of Witcher fan hearts.
Fortunately, the rumors have now been dismissed and absolutely 100% denied by CD Project Red. Below, a translated version of CD Projekt's chief executive Adam Kicinski's statement on the rumor has been posted.
"Usually we don't comment on rumors, but it's time to deny the one about takeover because it spread too far. In the name of the board, I would like to state: No, we are not in any talks about the sale of CD PROJEKT RED or GOG. Also, the document verifying the identity/credentials of the source is not real."
So, there's two important pieces of information to take from the latest announcement from Kicinski. Firstly, you should always take rumors with a pinch of salt - there is always the chance that a rumor may be completely faked simply to gain some internet attention.
Secondly, CD Projekt Red is definitely not being purchased by EA so there's nothing to worry about there. We'll be able to enjoy The Witcher 3 and all of Cd Projekt Red's future games without any interruption by other third party publishers.
