As Gamesindustry.biz notes, CD Projekt Pink’s share worth peaked in late August with a market cap of 42.4 billion Polish złoty, which is about $US10.7 billion. The person share worth was slightly below 461 złoty per share, or $US116.50. Subsequently, the studio instituted mandatory extra hours to finish work on Cyberpunk 2077, after which introduced a delayed release date. The share worth dropped to 331 złoty, and is at the moment at 335 złoty, which is about $US85.
I would already forgotten there was a Witcher-themed augmented reality game in the vein of Pokemon Go introduced in August, however that announcement coincided with the studio’s share worth peaking. The Cyberpunk 2077 hype clearly helped, and I believe the thought of a brand new cell recreation primarily based on the Witcher would not have appeared as interesting to traders earlier than the Netflix present made it a family identify.
CD Projekt Pink’s inventory fell earlier this yr when the influence of the Covid pandemic grew to become apparent, rallying after president and co-CEO Adam Kiciński defined they already had another big singleplayer RPG with a “comparatively clear idea” within the works, broadly assumed to be the next game in the Witcher universe.
