Meanwhile.MD at Sumo Digital stated his admiration for The Chinese Room too:

I’m delighted that Dan is joining Sumo Digital, and very much looking forward to The Chinese Room continuing to create the unique, innovative games they are known and loved for.

Sumo Digital now has made The Chinese Room their fifth studio and are continuing to grow rapidly. However, the criticism received by the acquired video game publisher might put a question mark on whether Sumo Digital made the right decision or not. Besides, the acquired company have had some terrible decisions made in the past too. Let’s see if other video game publisher or specifically CD Projekt Red have something to say to them just like before.
