Surprisingly, the rumor about CD Projekt RED's purchase by Sony reappeared this weekend. In case you don't remember, this kind of reports about the Polish studio have been circulating since the end of 2022, after the whole complicated situation with Cyberpunk 2077.
Several sources assured in recent days that the Japanese company was negotiating with CD Projekt RED to close a possible acquisition. Should you believe it? We recommend you not to get excited, as the studio's employees have already clarified the situation.
Sony and CD Projekt RED are not in talks for a potential buyout
The rumor about the purchase of CD Projekt RED by Sony spread like wildfire on social networks. The information even reached developers and other members of the Polish studio, who echoed the reports to clarify the matter.
Ola Sondej, public relations representative of CD Projekt RED, made things clear: they are not in talks with Sony to negotiate and close a possible acquisition. So, you better not believe the recent rumors about CD Projekt RED coming to PlayStation Studios.
Sony recently stated that it was already preparing for more acquisitions in the entertainment sector, but this does not necessarily mean that CD Projekt RED is one of its potential purchases. While it is striking that this is the second time the subject has been brought up, the studio itself has already denied the reports.
In recent months, a rumor also resurfaced that Sony wanted to buy Take-Two. However, it turned out to be information from a dubious source. All this is happening while Microsoft is on the verge of finalizing the purchase of Activision Blizzard.
