On the side of The Molasses Flood, studio manager Forrest Dowling was similarly enthusiastic. Working with CD Projekt, they see an incredible opportunity to reach a much larger audience. You can work with a company you love and develop games in worlds you love.
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.
According to the press release, The Molasses Flood will work in close cooperation with CD Projekt Red, but will remain an independent studio and will not be integrated into existing teams.
