    Polish CD Projekt RED becomes the largest gaming company in Europe, surpasses Ubisoft

    This week saw another triumph for Polish video game producer CD Project when its market valuation overtook that of French giant Ubisoft to become the largest video game producer and distributor in Europe. With a market valuation of 8 billion Euro, the company was already the most valuable Polish company on the Warsaw Stock Exchange having this year overtaken such giants as oil company Orlen and Bank PEKAO. Best known for the Witcher game series, based on the books of the same name by Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski, and now also a Netflix TV series, CD Projekt is working on its next game Cyberpunk 2077 which is scheduled to be released in September this year. This much anticipated game – the first trailer was released in 2013 – has already won a number of industry awards. The game is set in dystopian metropolis Night City, in the Free State of California, and features actor Keanu Reeves in a starring role as character Johnny Silverhand.
