Well, If I personally had to choose I would have chosen CD Projekt RED as the best RPG developer. However, there are names in the industry that exceed most in terms of talent and quality. It is unfair to just pick one. I’m sure you all have your own list of favorite RPG developers but what about CD Projekt’s favorite developers?
Who are the top 3 for one of the best studios in the world? Well, according to CD Projekt RED, Rockstar along with Bethesda and Blizzard are among the 3 RPG developers of our time.
Speaking in an Interview, Marcin Iwinski stated:
The goal for the last five years was to be among the best three roleplaying game developers and I think we got there. The Witcher 3 is the proof. For the top three, this is our perception, I’d definitely put Blizzard, I’d definitely put there Rockstar and I think I would put them at number 1 and probably Bethesda as well.
Rockstar is without a doubt one of the best and same can be said for Bethesda. Meanwhile, Blizzard is not only one of the best RPG developers but it has its fingers dipped deep in shooter genre as well. Its recent release, Overwatch has become a popular place to be for shooter fans.
On a related note, in the same interview Iwinski spoke about The Witcher 3 and how it was released without any copy protection. The developer explained its approach to dealing with piracy. The studio likes to convince fans to not pirate their games. They don’t believe in chasing them with sticks.
