CD Projekt Acquire The Molasses Flood Game Development Studio

While things have been rather quiet on the Cyberpunk 2077 front for a couple of months now, news is coming from from other sections of video game developer CD Projekt. The company this weekend confirmed its acquisition of the Boston-based studio The Molasses Flood, founded in 2014 and behind survival and base-building games such as Flame in the Flood and Drake Hollow.

What projects this will lead to are unknown. CD Projekt has confirmed that while working closely with their parent studio, The Molasses Flood will retain their identity and not be merged with existing teams. In fact, a bit of a recruitment drive for the studio is now underway. According to CD Projekt, “[t]he studio will be working on its own ambitious project which is based on one of CD PROJEKT’s IPs”.

We’re always on the lookout for teams who make games with heart. The Molasses Flood share our passion for video game development, they’re experienced, quality-oriented, and have great technological insight. I’m convinced they will bring a lot of talent and determination to the Group.

Adam Kiciński, President and Joint CEO, CD PROJEKT

From the inception of The Molasses Flood, it was our goal to create games that touch and inspire people. When CD PROJEKT approached us about the possibility of working together, we saw an incredible opportunity to reach a much wider audience through a collaboration with a company we love, creating games in worlds we love. We could not be more excited to continue our mission with the support of CD PROJEKT and their incredibly talented team.
