The Tech that Brings CD PROJEKT RED Games to Life
- May 12, 2018
There is a lot of rumor and anticipation around what may be coming next month at E3, the world’s premier event for computer and video games.
“We can’t wait to see what CD PROJEKT RED has in store for us,” says John Papadopoulos on Dark Side of Gaming where speculation is that it could be Cyberpunk 2077.
I have no real insight to add on whether that will be the case, but I can say that Cyberpunk 2077 will be brought to life with the assistance of Dell and Dell EMC technology.
“We have been utilizing Dell Precision workstations with Intel Xeon CPUs while working on our previous three titles,” says CD PROJEKT RED IT Manager Maciej Makowski in the video below. “We will continue this trend by developing our newest game with this equipment also – Cyberpunk 2077.”
Established in 2002, located in Warsaw and Kraków, Poland, CD PROJEKT RED has been using Dell Precision workstations since 2014, with approximately 270 units in operation today. CD PROJEKT RED also utilizes our Dell EMC Converged offerings, which bring together the disparate infrastructure elements that power IT, including servers, data storage devices, networking functions and more.
The studio is home to well over 300 game-making professionals from all over the globe that speak many different languages but share one love—games. You can see what it’s like inside those games and learn more about how our technology helps bring them to life in this video.
As I mentioned at the beginning, there is a lot of interest in what’s coming next in the gaming industry. Speculation abounds and there are tons of bloggers and journalists who cover the industry that would love to get a scoop.
That means security is also a top concern for our customers like CD PROJEKT RED.
“During the development stages of the games, CD PROJEKT RED generates vast quantities of data with safety being a top priority,” notes Aleksandra Pabin, one of our client solutions field marketing managers.
A “Keep Your Hard Drive” maintenance service available for our customers ensures that any malfunctioning disk drive is replaced and does not at any point leave the company’s premises; therefore the customer remains in full control of the data.
From delivering the hardware needed to create the games, to the PCs on which you play them, to sponsorship of eSports leagues and professional gamers that bring the gameplay to even larger audiences, Dell and Dell EMC technology truly runs end-to-end within the gaming industry.
