Monster Slayer has been shut down, though there will be layoffs

We haven’t talked about Spokko, CD Projekt RED’s mobile company, in a while. This subsidiary was the company responsible for the Pokemon Go-like The Witcher: Monster Slayer. The key word is “was,” as the company will be folding into a Projekt RED CD.

Let’s start with a short “Where is she now?” In The Witcher: Monster Slayer. He is dead. On January 31, 2023, the game will be pulled from the Google Play App Store and Apple App Stores, with a complete shutdown taking place in June 2023. After January 31, 2023, there will be no new content added to the game. Not that there are new daily and timed monsters, shields, quests, quests, or events.

What this means for Spokko (at least, from what was said in The Witcher: Monster Slayer’s closing FAQ) is that there will be several structural changes.

Going forward, we plan to turn Spokko into CD PROJEKT RED, while giving part of its staff the opportunity to join CD PROJEKT’s core development projects. During this transition, there will be some employees who will unfortunately be let go – however, we will do everything we can to support all of our employees affected by this situation and ensure the transition to the next step in their career is as easy and as safe as possible.

Some employees will be laid off, unfortunately. Now, how big is this portion? We’ll have to wait and see to find out. On the other hand, the upside is that other Spokko employees will get access to many of the projects currently working at CD Projekt RED, such as the new The Witcher trilogy, Cyberpunk 2077, and a new proprietary IP. Some of the CDPR staff will also have to support projects like The Witcher spin-off from The Molasses Flood and The Witcher remake from Fool’s Theory.
