The Polish video game company CD Projekt Group – known for titles such as The Witcher III and Cyberpunk 2077 – has acquired the US-based developer The Molasses Flood.
This studio is perhaps best known for the survival-building base games The Flame in the Flood, and more recently Drake Hollow.
Here’s what CD Projekt’s president and CEO, Adam Kiciński, had to say about the new team coming aboard:
“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.”
And The Molasses Flood studio head, Forrest Dowling, shared the following statement:
“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.”
The official PR goes on to state how the newly acquired studio will be working on its own “ambitious” project based on one of CD Projekt’s IPs – with details to be shared in the future.
