“We’re always on the lookout for teams who make games with heart,” said CD Projekt president and joint CEO Adam Kicinski. “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 studio head Forrest Dowling, “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.”
Here is a message from The Molasses Flood studio head Forrest Dowling on the acquisition:
We’ve got some pretty cool news to share… The Molasses Flood has officially joined CD Projekt!
So what does this mean? We get to build a completely new game in the universe of an existing CD Projekt IP, we get to hire a lot more folks, and we get to keep making games based on the same principals that have always guided us: making games with heart built on rich gameplay systems.
We’re also staying The Molasses Flood, although we’ll probably add “a CD Projekt studio” to that pretty often. When we started talking with CD Projekt, they made it clear that they weren’t looking to simply absorb us, but rather embrace us and support our own culture and growth.
We would love to talk about what we’re working on, but we’re going to have to wait for now. In the meantime, we’re hiring, so if you’re interested in seeing what we’re up to, send along a resume!
Thanks for reading, and we can’t walt to share more in the future.
