At least in recent concerns for developer CD Projekt Red, the Polish game studio currently has its crosshairs aimed at resolving the problematic launch for Cyberpunk 2077 on last-generation systems. The issue became so apparent that even Sony Interactive Entertainment pulled the listing for Cyberpunk 2077 from the PlayStation Store back in December and the game is only available to purchase via physical copies on PlayStation 4 & PlayStation 5.

Despite the criticisms of the game at launch, CD Projekt Red goes to support the game at launch by defending itself from the complaints of the game on older hardware. Additionally, co-founder Marcin Iwinski for CD Projekt Red did go on later to apologize for the performance of Cyberpunk 2077 as he maps out the developer’s plans as to how the game will be approached in 2021.

Most noted on Tuesday is a new press release from CD Projekt Red stating to be acquiring support studio, Digital Scapes Studios. The purchase will establish the Canadian developer as a subsidiary for the Polish game studio as it gets a new name, CD Projekt Red Vancouver.

The well-known Digital Scapes team is our trusted partner. For three years we have been closely working together, and we trust them completely. Digital Scapes have put in a great deal of work during the making of Cyberpunk 2077, assisting with development of the game and optimizing its various features.

In addition to contributing to our projects the new team will help us perfect our technologies and will broaden our competences in this respect. We believe that the hugely talented Digital Scapes crew is the perfect foundation upon which to build a wider CD Projekt Red Vancouver team.

Gathered from the involvement of before-titled Digital Scapes Studios, the Vancouver-based developer is suspected to continue its work with CD Projekt Red in Poland to further resolve the problems that still plague the game on last-generation systems. CD Projekt Red Vancouver is also told to be tasked with new projects that CD Projekt Red is tackling ahead.

Namely, the next The Witcher game: previously CD Projekt Red was reported by Eurogamer where CEO Adam Kiciński commented on a new game coming. While the studio head does reference a previous statement reiterating that the next game is not a direct sequel, The Witcher 4, he does disclose that the project is still set in the same universe.

Also, CD Projekt Red in a recent tweet from its Lead PR Manager Radek Gabrowski stated that the next-generation version for The Wither 3: Wild Hunt is arriving sometime in the latter half of 2021. You can read the full report by heading here.
