Here is some surprising news to help you get through a new day of unhappy existence; CD Projekt has just overtaken Ubisoft in terms of value for European video game companies. It’s a huge surprise considering the length and history of Ubisoft, compared to the relatively short story of CD Projekt.CD Projekt Group Officially Surpasses Ubisoft As The Most Valuable European Video Game Company.
Ubisoft started developing video games in 1986 with Fer et flame on the Amstrad CPC; an 8-bit computer built in 1984. CD Projekt released its first title in 2007; a little-known title called The Witcher.
Currently, CD Projekt is worth around $ 8.76 billion, compared to $ 8.55 billion for Ubisoft. CD Projekt has more than just the Witcher franchise, also owning GOG where they bring classic (and recent) titles to users, without DRM.
