Although it was held for a long time, 2020 was a very lucrative year for CD Projekt RED. Despite the bad start of Cyberpunk 2077, the company reported a profit of approximately $303 million for 2020. At the same time, CD Projekt RED became Europe’s most valuable video game company; surpassing even Ubisoft with its market value of over $8.1 billion.
In such a good time, the company launched a fundraiser on Kickstarter, whose purpose is often to raise funds for those who do not have the financial means to bring their projects to life. The project that received support is a manga called The Witcher: Ronin.
Already $560,000 has been donated:
CD Projekt RED‘s The Witcher: Ronin manga is a 4-part work of nearly 100 pages full of Japanese influences. The target set by CD Projekt RED for the manga’s campaign is $107,000, but this goal has already been reached, with more than $560,000 in support within hours.
Of course, this campaign also raises the question of why CD Projekt RED is raising funds for a manga. The team answered this question in their own way on the donation page they opened on Kickstarter. The CD Projekt RED team stated that the manga has already been completed and the payments have been made and stated that the campaign was started to see how much attention the new concept would attract, and if it did, to make new studies on how much such a collectible product could be developed.
The campaign offers different package options to its supporters. Depending on the amount paid and the package chosen; supporters get various collectible items as well as the edition of The Witcher: Ronin. Also, don’t forget to check out our other news from here.
