Some days ago we talked about a rumor of CD Projekt Red being acquired by some companies. This rumor came on the internet because the software house was about to hold a meeting with the investors on November 29, 2016. The main agenda points of this meeting regarded the possibility for the company to buy back part of its shares, merging the main Brands and changing the company’s statute. Luckily, it seems CD Projekt Red takeover rumors were not true.

As stated by wccftech, the team only wanted to safeguard the interests of minority shareholders in a hypothetical case where a major shareholder emerges professing a vision that conflict with theirs. So it simply was a precaution on hypothetical events: CD Projekt Red takeover is not happening.
The company is still focused on making good games, and Gwent, a card game based on The Witcher 3, was more successful than CD Projekt Red ever imagined.
Here you can find what the team said about the feedback they received from the players.
We wanted to make a fun mini-game that players would enjoy without worries. It was a small project, we didn’t think it could turn out being a success. It’s crazy that players were actually spending a whole lot of time playing GWENT, much more than we anticipated. We started receiving a lot of messages from them, asking us to make a standalone version of GWENT that would let them play their friends. There really were tons of messages, the feedback was huge, so we decided to make a definitive standalone version of Gwent.
The Witcher 3 is out for consoles and PC, while GWENT is releasing in 2017 for different platforms.
