When CD Projekt RED announced new projects in the series The Witcher, many fans of the franchise even crowed with delight. Unfortunately, a few months later, it turns out that such a multitude of duties may mean that the Polish studio will soon have to reshuffle its schedule. Currently, dark clouds have gathered over Project Sirius.
The Witcher Project Sirius at risk? Here is CD Projekt RED’s announcement
Very disturbing news comes to us from the headquarters CD Project RED. A Polish studio that is working on new productions from the series The Witcher in recent weeks and months revealed some details about Project Sirius. Firstly We found out that the game is first intended for fans of the Netflix series, and some time later that it will be equipped with a co-op mode.
It might seem that the appearance of such information on the web means the studio’s developers are working hard The Molasses Floodwho develop Project Sirius every day. Nothing more wrong! CD Projekt RED has issued a statement in which we read about the amounts generated by the development of the game. In 2022, it was PLN 33.4 million, and in the first months of 2023 it was PLN 9.5 million. Such amounts are most likely not suitable for the Polish company, which means that it has to “define a new framework for the project”.
The Management Board of CD PROJEKT SA with its registered office in Warsaw (the “Company”) hereby announces that it has made a decision to create a write-down in the Company’s books on the value of the expenditure incurred so far on development work related to the Sirius project developed by The Molasses Flood studio. The value of outlays incurred until the end of 2022 amounted to PLN 33.4 million and will be charged to the financial result of the Company and the CD PROJEKT Capital Group for 2022. The value of expenditures previously recognized in the books in January and February 2023 amounted to PLN 9.5 million and will be charged to the financial result accordingly for the first quarter of 2023.
The reason for the decision are the results of the evaluation of the scope and commercial potential of the Sirius Project in its original formula and the ongoing work on defining the new project framework.
