Following the decisive statement of Ukrainian support by 11 bit Studios, fellow Polish developer (and largest) CD Projekt Red announced they are donating 1 million PLN (~$243,000 USD) to the Polish humanitarian organization, Polska Akcja Humanitarna.

Here’s the full statement from CDPR:

The recent invasion on Ukraine, our friends and neighbors, left us shocked and outraged.

In solidarity with all victims of this act of aggression, the CD PROJEKT Group has decided to support humanitarian aid efforts by donating 1 million PLN to the PAH.

We cannot remain indifferent in the face of such injustice and we ask everybody to join in and help in any way you can. Together we can make a huge difference!

Founded in 1994, CD Projekt Red is known for the Witcher RPG series (based on Polish fantasy author Andrez Sapkowski’s novels) as well as the DRM-free digital distribution store, GOG.

Their most recent game was ambitious sci-fi RPG Cyberpunk 2077. Cyberpunk released in 2020 to a myriad of technical problems, causing Sony to temporarily remove it from the PlayStation store. CD Projekt was sued via a class-action lawsuit over downplaying the game’s technical problems on release. They ultimately settled for $1.85 million.
