CD Projekt Red, the Polish developer behind The Witcher and Cyberpunk 2077, has acquired a majority stake in another Polish developer, Spokko, that is making a new mobile game.

There is no word on exactly what Spokko is making for CD Projekt Red, but the Witcher studio teased that it is giving Spokko access to at least some of its intellectual properties.

In fact, Spokko came to CD Projekt Red to pitch an idea about one of the studio's brands. "They approached us with an interesting idea based on one of our brands--an idea we decided to invest in," CD Projekt boss Adam Kicinski said in a statement (via Gamasutra). "We want to expand our business with innovative concepts and solutions, and the vision presented to us by the Spokko team represents an entirely novel creative angle. The new studio will be largely independent. We intend to provide it with a distinct identity and creative autonomy, in line with the philosophy which has long guided the actions of the CD Projekt Group."

Spokko co-founder Maciej Weiss said in his own statement that he is "elated" about CD Projekt's decision to invest in Spokko. He also teased that Spokko's new game for CD Projekt is "far more advanced and ambitious" as the more casual titles that the team made before. "

"This time around we want to work on a far more advanced and ambitious project, offering new possibilities for gamers," Weiss said. "It's a very exciting challenge."

Spokko, which is based in Warsaw, is currently hiring for a number of positions. Whatever Spokko is making, it won't be CD Projekt's first mobile game, as the studio already released Gwent on mobile devices.

In other news about CD Projekt, the studio is expected to make some kind of announcement about Cyberpunk 2077 this week during Gamescom.
