CD Projekt Group has announced that they have acquired the development studio behind Flame in the Flood, The Molasses Flood. The development studio is formed by video games developers behind hits such as Halo and BioShock. The press releases says that Molasses Flood will be working in close cooperation with CD Projekt Red but they will remain a separate group of developers and won’t be merged into current teams at CD Projekt Red. CD Projekt Red is the team behind The Witcher series and Cyberpunk 2077. The press release states that the new studio “will be working on its own ambitious project which is based on one of CD PROJEKT’s IPs.”
“We’re always on the lookout for teams who make games with heart. The Molasses Flood share our passion for video game development, they’re experienced, quality-oriented, and have great technological insight. I’m convinced they will bring a lot of talent and determination to the Group.”
Adam Kiciński, President and Joint CEO, CD PROJEKT.
“From the inception of The Molasses Flood, it was our goal to create games that touch and inspire people. When CD PROJEKT approached us about the possibility of working together, we saw an incredible opportunity to reach a much wider audience through a collaboration with a company we love, creating games in worlds we love. We could not be more excited to continue our mission with the support of CD PROJEKT and their incredibly talented team.”
