Witcher Dev CD Projekt Merges with Polish Company, Plans to Go Public

CD Projekt, the Polish developer of the cult favorite PC RPG The Witcher, is set to be acquired by the "nearly defunct" Polish computer company Optimus S.A. nope In an easily confusing set of financial trickery, the move will actually allow the owners of CD Projekt to become the owners of the new public company, enabling the once-private company to go public on the stock exchange.

"Since Optimus is a stock market company, CD Projekt will in fact go public and have access to all stock instruments," said a CD Projekt spokesperson to Kotaku. "Ultimately, this means money for future development of the whole company."
