Witcher 3 Hearts of Stone

Rumours began swelling yesterday that CD Projekt RED, known for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, was in talks to be acquired by EA. Considering the differing stance of both companies on many things, including DRM and free DLC, there were understandably fears from the most devout of fans.

Co-founder Marcin Iwinski since spoke to Eurogamer and stated that, “We usually don’t comment on rumours but this one has become quite viral and we think it deserves to be put to bed. We are not talking with anyone regarding selling CD Projekt Red or Period.”

The source that spoke about the “takeover” of CD Projekt RED by EA provided a payslip to confirm their identity as an employee. However, Iwinski refuted this as well, stating that, “The payslip is a fake – it was not issued by our company.”

Thoughts on this whole situation, or just plain rejoicing? Let us know in the comments below.

    Doesn’t really make sense to me why anyone would want to be acquired by EA save for marketing and ad space. While this is important, I can’t help but feel many companies have fallen from grace as a result of their union with EA. That CD Projekt Red and, who are among the frontrunners that run not only on a company but a philosophy as well that runs directly counter to EA’s and others *cough*Ubisoft*cough* businesses, it would be especially disheartening to those of us that believe a DRM free world is a better one. What they’ve done is working and I’d hate to see these two go the way of EA or Ubisoft.
