According to this, CD Projekt has acquired a controlling stake in fellow Polish developer Metropolis.

With the inclusion of the Metropolis team and splitting the existing CD Projekt studio into two, the company is now working on three projects. CD Projekt is most famous for The Witcher, the PC RPG which recently announced sales of 600,000 in three months.

“I’m very happy that we managed to combine the strengths of two key development teams in Poland. Metropolis and CD Projekt have many values in common: we believe that the success of our products depends on innovative character and atmosphere, as well as uncompromising care of the highest quality,” said CD Projekt CEO Michal Kicinski in a statement.
