Why do I think it is a bad idea for Microsoft to buy CD Projekt RED?

“They are rumors, they are rumors,” as he sang The deer a few years ago … the purchase of CD Project RED is on everyone’s lips after the loss of confidence, not financial, after Cyberpunk 2077. But, is it a good idea that Microsoft buy the company?

The model I play every 5 years does not fit the Xbox Gamepass

Well, from my point of view no. A not quite resounding, and that whoever knows me knows that I am a fanboy absolute of both companies. And my reasons for writing this text and fuck the coffee? Well, I expose them below.

It is all due to what I think is the model chosen by Microsoft and that copies the one that the big multinational leisure companies are carrying out: a lot of content and with little time between productions. The Gamepass is the jewel in the crown of Microsoft and the ecosystem Xbox, but it is nurtured, just like Netflix, of a constant input of material that leaves the user hooked on the subscription and only one or two quarterly bombs to attract new customers.

Cyberpunk girls have their stuff

Four Triple A a year and a lot of third party games and you have people hooked on the service

That’s why I think buying a company that makes a game every 5 years is not a good idea, no matter how juicy the IPs are or the studio has enough people to work on more than one project at the same time.

We would have many development teams, some working in triple A, with many proprietary IPs, almost as if to feed Xbox for the next 10 years. But that doesn’t nurture a service like Gamepass not even remotely, that only makes people pay for a month and enjoy the great game.

It is nice to dream of a CD Project RED away from vulture funds and non-video game capital, with a Phil Spencer giving them enough money to create great games, but in my opinion, they better stay as an independent entity.

And you, what do you think of a CD Proyekt RED attached to Microsoft?
