GOG Galaxy 2.0 preview video is LIVE. Check it out:
Because they believe that microtransactions in a single player game are nuts and because they release their games when they’re ready.

Never change, CD Projekt Red.
Most publishers: Make DLC's. Call them new games.
CDPR: Makes new game. Calls it DLC.
" They don't follow trends, they create them "
Well said.

People who said Witcher 3 overrated are just either people who haven’t played the game or just people that hate RPG so much
I pirated their game once, the witcher 3, I felt so guilty and couldn't sleep at night then I went to gog to buy their game

I work in IT in Poland for 2 years now. I am always impressed with their technical skills, how honest and clean-fingered they are. It is a pleasure to work with Polish people. Maybe that reflects in CDPR.

Arthur Morgan:
When you win over the hearts of gamers they will literally throw their money at you ! This is something EA just doesnt understand.
Other game companies: Single player games are dead.

CDPR: Hold my Spunky Monkey
Witcher 3 is still a masterpiece to this day . ❤️ CD Projekt
Vishnu V S
Vishnu V S:
Some companies just release the same game with just upgraded graphics.

Assassin's Creed: sweats
Other game publishers: You’re only known for The Witcher 3. Cyberpunk is too ambitious and will fail
CDPR: So as I was saying, when Keanu Reeves came on the stage, it was louder than when we won game of the year

Santa Monica Games: Yeah, that shit looked reminiscent
General Alduin
General Alduin:
Because they don’t have micro-transactions, and aren’t involved in any shady business like everyone else these days.

And they didn’t make fallout 76.

I am Polish 🤗 (so are the CD PR founders)
And reading YOUR comments made me shed a tear! it is so wonderful to see all the love and support!! I'd love for Poland to appreciate the treasure CD PR is, just as much as all of YOU guys do ☺️
Bethesda-19.99 for Santa outfit for your character
CDPR-19.99 DLC with 20+ hours worth of gamplay with new quests, characters, items and map. Not to mention a great story.

EA: we do everything for money.
Me:(play ea games as pirate.)

CDPR: we dont do this for money.
I just learned of CDPR a week ago when I bought the Witcher 3: wild hunt. Since it was so expensive I had a moment of should I buy this, and I even asked the person at the register before I bought it as I been majorly disappointed with games... And I have to say I am glad I did. I been playing this game for a week straight and I love it and not even half way into the game. I find they have a lot more stuff than most games out now, as I can complete games that cost around the same price I two days and I feel cheated..

I highly appreciate what CDPR is doing and to ask me even if they have done anything wrong I would not care, heck I see glitches in the game I have all the time, such as the game had an error and will exit out, but I do not mind playing anything over again as usually even if you have not saved yourself it's not much that to have to go back and do. Also the gwent games having a small glitch here and there, as well as some weirdly stretched out limbs. But I say the quality of the game by far makes up for any glitch.

Lucas Ezy:
A company that produces a game aiming at its quality, durability, fun, immersion, interaction and not just profit from the first year sale.
-A company that makes a game with side missions as complete and long as whole games,
-A company that invests its full potential in creating a vast, immersive, living world, with NPCs that react to rain, to their actions, among them in a beautiful way and just remember that all this was done in 2015 and see that they were ahead of its time a singleplayer game even today has more than 20 thousand simultaneous players taking advantage of everything it has to offer, a game with free DLC'S and DLC'S so big that they compare to complete whole games for such a low price that many would pay 2x for pure sadisfaction and gratitude, for these and other reasons that the CD is so respected by everyone, respect for consumers and fans, which many companies no longer care about.

Witcher 3 was the best game I ever played in all aspects possible! 😊

Because they put effort into their games and respect gamers wallets. That's why.
Well they are a company so not everything is not out of the goodness of their heart

Rafika 1337:
When you said, "there are two types of companies to date, those that follow trends and the ones that create them" , that hit me so hard. I immediately thought of Halo who use to be the one to follow their own path and create trends, but with its last two games all it did was follow trends, which made it a generic game.
CDPR and Rockstar are the two best gaming companies around right now.

I dont know when it's coming out but I got my 60 dollars save.
Just started witcher 3 about a month ago. It's an absolute beauty.

If you’re a gamer, you don’t even have to ask.
Deus Ex: *exists*

I’m short words:

Good historial.

I play like 5 hours of every rpg I tried, but Witcher hold me longer and still going strong. Might buy 1 and 2 just for fun though

CDPR is the paragon of what indie game development represent.

At first we were all like: "goddammit gimme the goddamn game already for fu-"
And a few seconds later we were like: "god bless you CDPR."

Ubisoft:Oh AC Origins man, my Anubis DLC, man, oh such mamma mia
CDPR: Hold my beer

B Fo:
I really love CDPR and Cyberpunk is looking amazing so far, there is just one thing I want to know. I do not want to play a fantastic game and enjoy myself at the costs of others so I would really like to know how their employees are being treated in terms of pressure etc. Being in the industry myself I want to know if they are paying well, to what extent they have crunch, how they are avoiding it and if they would for example support a union for Game Workers. We players should not just respect the company with our words but also the people who make it with action.
Ultra Violet
Ultra Violet:
I remember buying Witcher 3. I was pretty hyped and in the same time, other Publishers started to get more and more into Lootsystems and "pay us 10 Dollars for a fashion armor set thing.

And I opened the Gamebox and there was a little paper with a note that said 'hey, thank you very much for trusting us and buying the game. We hope you have fun playing it and also, here are 13 mini dlcs for quests, armorsets and ingameskins for free because you already payed for the game'

That really impressed me.
And then came the moment HoS and BaW came out for like not even 30 Dollars and they added so much hours of playing, so many new and awesome quests and stories.

In a time where, for example, Ubisofz spends more time to throw out 5 dollar armor dlcs every week then to actually develop the game, it's a huge sign of player friendly work cdpr is giving us.
the accent tho
the way u pronounce the "R" is legendary xD
Debu Neko
Debu Neko:
I finished The Witcher 3 for fourth time on pirated version i downloaded , then out of respect i bought the game via steam !
CD project is the complete opposite of EA...
Because CDPR really respects the gaming community.
Because CD Projekt Red respects the gaming community.
Matt Daniels
Matt Daniels:
Because they actually optimize their games and reach a broader community that doesn't have the latest gen consoles or $2500 gaming rigs and still manage to put out great looking games.
And CDPR is what we, people from Poland, can be proud of ❤
Arsalan Ahmed
Arsalan Ahmed:
It's simple, CD Projekt Red cares about their customers.
Cause they are correct and they make great games with a fair price! they respect their clients. Id love to see a Star Wars RPG game in their hands!
Bestia z Wadowic
Bestia z Wadowic:
easy, because
>full games without cut content added later as DLC
>oldschool expansions adding actual game time instead of shitty visuals only
thats enough to get respect as DEV today...
Cd p r is the ONLY games company i still have respect for.
gonçalo Baia
gonçalo Baia:
Also one very good reason I REALLY love CDPR is that being so loved and supported they might eventually cause other companies to envy them and do the same
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt came out 4 years ago and today the complete edition (including all DLCs) is 11 dollars. Skyrim came out 8 years ago, and the game alone with upgraded graphics still goes for 40 dollars today. That pretty much sums up why CD Projekt Red is respected. Skyrim is a good game, but Bethesda has gotten greedy.

CD Project Red has replaced Bethesda as my favorite game developer.
EA and CD PR are at the two ends of the spectrum.

I thought 2077 looked pretty good and after just finishing the Witcher 3 Im that much more sure it will be

They are the best at what they do, that is being a real leader in the gaming community instead of being leechers like most of the other developers.
Adi Adrian

Because CD Projekt Red respects Gaming Community
Ritesh Nahavre
Ritesh Nahavre:
I can proudly Say that The witcher 3 changed my perspective of "Sidequests" coz they had good story and made sense instead of fetching some shit for a peasant and the DLC omg I thought i was playing a sequel to it i just love these guys
Liquid Squid
Liquid Squid:
EA: I have a lootbox army

CD Projekt: we have a Keanu Reeves
Kuwait Love
Kuwait Love:
You got that right.. EA releasing basically the same game with minor changes.. and more income without the improve in value. Madden comes to mind.
Let me tell you why we respect this gaming company with four words: They aren’t greedy hacks.

When was the last time a developer said
"It will be out when it's ready"
And that's why I like CDPR

Dan _Sampson77
Dan _Sampson77:
What I thought was so unique and amazing was when I bought the Witcher three was they had a thank you letter in the case of the game and they also included the first two DLC’s for free as well and ever since that day I’ve had mad respect for Them.
Game Play
Game Play:
when you release the witcher 3, your dam sure gonna get some respect
William Harris
William Harris:
a friend introduced me to first game, and I wanted some newer type of adventure game. it fit the bill for me, I couldn't put it down I did feel like I was Geralt, in some ways.

just bought the 2 DLCs for the Witcher 3.. and I decided to start over all the way rofl (I already have 300 hours in-game and counting)
and I already pre-ordered Cyberpunk 2077 .. soo yea
Dutch Plan der Linde
Dutch Plan der Linde:
CDPR and Rockstar are my favorite devs, Naughty dog used to be on that list until now lol
Cause they deserve respect, from making one heck of a game to giving free dlcs to making 2 additional worth it expansion and now they are giving us cyberpunk a future triple a game.
some random guy on the internet
some random guy on the internet:
"they never released something that's not finished" that is so rare
Jazz Espinosa

What CDPR does right:
Makes enjoyable content
Makes fun of their own mistakes
Takes feedback and uses it
And most importantly...

I actually went back to witcher 1 after finishing witcher 3..
"welcome to my laboratory where safety is #1 priority" - wait, sorry, wrong channel...
CDPR filled the void that Bethesda left when I lost respect for them

I don’t think CDPR will ever do micro transactions.

Thx for sharing

Doug Dynamo
Doug Dynamo:
They earned my purchase when they made a game I was interested in.

They earned my admiration when the game they made was so well crafted.

They earned my attention when they created extra, worthwhile content for a small price.

They earned my respect when they treated me like themselves and not a wallet to be picked.
Never played the Witcher 3. Just bought it because I'm so hyped for 2077 and I'd rather support them then say...ea

when the witcher 3 is on sale on steam, you should wait till the sale is over to pay the full prize. id pay twice what they charge for GOTY Edition, the best game ever.
Genghis Kong
Genghis Kong:
It's simple: When you don't try to nickel and dime the gamers.
When you respect gamers, gamers respect you.
Then there's also the fact that they're a polish company, which makes me love them even more :3
Eric Voss
Eric Voss:
I actually think that CD Projekt Red is one, or the only "big" non greedy gaming company out there and I love them for that
CDPR makes me proud of my country :3

damn, never thought that witcher 1and 2 has that kind of graphics quality. damnnn! im really impressed
Cibanshu Sankhua
Cibanshu Sankhua:
Say that again, think about FIFA same game upgraded graphics each year
What cdpr tries, is to create good stuffs.they take their time and do it right, even if cdpr makes any mistakes in pretty sure gamers will cut them slack and not hate them. They have succeeded in making themselves a class apart from the rest of the gaming industry. While the rest of the industry is busy finding new ways to charge money, cdpr has tried to improve the industry, and we see that and respect and love them for that.
I just really hope Cyberpunk is gonna be great. There are 2 reasons for that: 1. I did not enjoy any game as much as Witcher 3 since it came out, and 2. CD Projekt Red really deserves to be rewarded for all the effort and respect they treat their fans with.
"CDPR when you will make multiplayer games ?"
Gwent Standalone : am i a joke to you
"Same series...same formula"
*Me looking at fifa....
