CD Projekt announces the acquisition of The Molasses Flood, an independent Boston-based studio founded by former developers of Irrational Games (BioShock).
The studio, which is behind survival games like Drake Hollow, will keep its identity but will make a new game set in one of the universes created by CD Projekt RED.
The announcement of the acquisition by CD Projekt was released a few days ago by Adam Kiciński, director of CD Projekt Group: “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.”
The Molasses Flood also shared an official statement, signed by Studio Director Forrest Dowling.
The Molasses Flood will work closely with the CD Projekt RED team to create an “ambitious project” based on one of the Polish developer’s IPs. There are no other details, but one thing is certain — it will be a new game set in the futuristic world of Cyberpunk or in the fantasy world of The Witcher, probably a spin-off.
Also, CD Projekt Red has recently announced, the next-gen updates of the two open-world role-playing games, Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, have been postponed to the coming year.
