CDPR re-evaluates The Witcher from The Molasses Flood
CD Projekt Red is re-evaluating the upcoming Witcher game from The Molasses Flood, codenamed Sirius.
Twitter user Game Over Thirty (below) shared an announcement for investors from CD Projekt Red, noting that things aren’t looking right with one of the many upcoming Witcher games, and saying that an impairment fee is being raised by a company to write off depreciated or lost assets entirely. .
What this means for the project is currently unclear, although it is possible that CD Projekt Red will redevelop the game or rework its key elements.
1/ CD Project Group is taking an impairment charge on Project Sirius. It looks like they evaluated the commercial viability of the current design and decided against it. Taking a charge indicates that they want the expenses taken *NOW* because they serve no value to the company.
