  • Seamless transition for users
  • Continued access to features and services
  • Dedicated support teams for assistance

In a move that has caught the attention of avid gamers and online communities, CD Projekt Red has announced a major consolidation of its online features and services. Effective from March 5th, 2024, the game developer will be migrating these products to a new account system owned and operated by CD PROJEKT S.A. This change will impact users of Cross Progression, My Rewards, and participants in platforms like the CD PROJEKT RED Forums.

So, what does this mean for gamers? Well, starting from the aforementioned date, all the aforementioned online features and services will be accessible through the new CD PROJEKT RED account system. The transition will be seamless for users, as a new CD PROJEKT RED account will be automatically created for them based on their existing GOG Account information, including user ID, username, and email address. This ensures that users can continue enjoying the features provided by CD PROJEKT RED without any interruption.

But how will users log in after the migration? Fear not, as your new account will use the same email address as your GOG Account. If you’re already logged into any of CD PROJEKT RED’s games, you will stay logged in when the account change takes place. This means that you won’t have to go through the hassle of re-authenticating or setting up a new account.

Now, let’s address the elephant in the room: personal data. With this migration, CD PROJEKT S.A. will become the data controller of your personal data associated with your CD PROJEKT RED account. The transfer of data is based on a legitimate interest in ensuring continuity of CD PROJEKT RED online services. For more detailed information regarding data privacy, you can refer to the updated CD PROJEKT S.A. Privacy Policy.

But what about your current GOG account? Don’t worry, it remains unaffected. Your GOG account and all your purchases on GOG.com will continue to operate using the GOG account system. In other words, your GOG account will remain separate from your CD PROJEKT RED account. This means that you can still access and enjoy all the features and services provided by GOG without any changes.

Now, for those who prefer to have more control over their accounts, there is an option to opt out of the CD PROJEKT RED account creation process. However, it’s important to note that by doing so, you will lose access to Cross Progression, My Rewards, and RED Forums, and all connected data will be permanently deleted. So, make sure to carefully consider your decision before opting out.

For any further questions or assistance, the support page of both GOG and CD PROJEKT RED is available to provide you with the necessary help. The teams behind these gaming giants are dedicated to ensuring a smooth transition and a continued enjoyable experience for all users.

Warm regards,
