CD Projekt Acquires The Molasses Flood, The Studio Behind The Flame In The Flood

CD Projekt has announced that it has acquired The Molasses Flood, the studio known for games like The Flame in the Flood and Drake Hollow.  This news comes by way of a press release from CD Projekt that says The Molasses Flood is a perfect fit for the studio group. The studio will be working on one of CD Projekt’s IP, although it will retain its own identity and won’t merge with any existing teams in CD Projekt.  “The Molasses Flood will be working in close cooperation with CD Projekt Red, but will keep their current identity and will not be merged with existing teams,” the release reads. “The studio will be working on its own ambitious project which is based on one of CD Projekt’s IPs. Details about the project will be announced in the future.”  CD Projekt specifically cites The Molasses Flood’s technological insight and experience as reasons for the acquisition. “We’re always on the lookout for teams who make games with heart,” CD Projekt president and CEO Adam Kiciński writes in the press release. “The Molasses Flood share our passion for video game development, they’re experienced, quality-oriented, and have great technological insight. I’m convinced they will bring a lot of talent and determination to the Group.”  The Molasses Flood’s studio head, Forrest Dowling, says the studio saw an incredible opportunity in becoming part of the CD Projekt group, which is also the home of CD Projekt Red, the team behind The Witcher series and Cyberpunk 2077. Dowling says The Molasses Flood’s acquisition by CD Projekt will allow the team to reach a much wider audience.  While waiting for more details on The Molasses Flood’s next project, check out Game Informer’s The Flame in the Flood review and then check out our Cyberpunk 2077 review.

    Lionsgate Inks First-Look COPE WITH Vertigo Entertainment

    Lionsgate inks first-look deal with Vertigo Entertainment After partnering with the studio on past films including Blair Witch, Flight 7500 and the forthcoming Cobweb, Lionsgate has signed a first-look motion picture deal with Vertigo Entertainment, recently known for producing hits including the It and The Lego Movie franchises. RELATED: Lionsgate’s Cobweb Nabs Lizzy Caplan, Antony Starr & Cleopatra Coleman The new pact will include motion pictures, stage, location-based entertainment, podcasts (except those intended to be developed for television series), and video games. With this wide-ranging deal, Vertigo becomes a prime provider to the studio’s slate. Vertigo’s television deal remains in place with Sony Pictures Television. “Roy was one of our first friends in this business – ever since Nathan and Roy served as assistants together over 25 years ago,” Joe Drake, Lionsgate Motion Picture Group chairman, said in a statement. “He’s now one of the most respected producers of big, branded IP and genre movies – bringing together filmmakers with distinct voices to the biggest titles and raising genre titles to event status. We’re thrilled to have him as a member of the extended Lionsgate team.” Vertigo’s team consists of the producers Roy Lee and Miri Yoon, vice-president Andrew Childs, director of development Aengus McLoone with Robin Jones running the television side. Vertigo and Lionsgate are currently collaborating on the upcoming film Cobweb, soon to enter production, after previously teaming on the films The Eye, Abduction, and Blair Witch; in addition, Lee previously teamed with Drake and Kahane in their previous capacities as producers of the hit Grudge franchise and The Strangers, among other films. “I’m grateful to be reuniting with Joe and Nathan,” Lee said in a statement. “This was an exciting opportunity not just because we get to work in every aspect of entertainment, but to do it with people I’ve admired and respected my whole career. I’m a big believer in everything Joe is doing to create a new Lionsgate and it’s exciting to be a part of it.” RELATED: Wander Darkly: Lionsgate Acquires North American Rights to Tara Miele’s Drama Since returning to the Lionsgate Motion Picture Group in 2018, Drake has focused the studio’s content strategy in key genres that are natural extensions into Vertigo’s key strengths as producers.
