CD PROJEKT today announced it will be joining forces with Futuregames Warsaw, the Polish division of one of the best Rookies-certified game dev schools in the world, as main strategic partner, with the aim of promoting, supporting, and working together to expand access to education in the various fields of the video game industry.
Futuregames, a game dev academy originally from Sweden, offers a whole range of different types of education and at many different levels, from short courses for experienced professionals to full-time programs for aspiring game developers just getting started in the industry. With support from CD PROJEKT, the new Warsaw-based branch of Futuregames will be offering courses in game programming, design, and art. Lessons will be held in English, on-site in Warsaw, and will be open to all EU citizens and valid student visa holders. First courses will be starting in September, with Futuregames Warsaw attendees getting to create a total of four games — all using provided professional-grade game dev software and hardware — with their creators retaining full ownership of the games they make.
Thanks to CD PROJEKT’s involvement, Futuregames Warsaw will be able to offer a 50% discount on tuition fees of all students in the first year of the partnership. The company will also provide Futuregames scholarships up to nine of the highest performing students in the partnership’s second year, as well as offer 30 weeks of internships to course participants at CD PROJEKT RED, the studio behind The Witcher series of games and Cyberpunk 2077. Enrollment process is still open, and all interested can apply here.
With almost 25 years of experience, Futuregames has consistently ranked as one of the best game industry education providers in the world. In addition to CD PROJEKT, studios working with Futuregames include such names as Avalanche Studios, King, Ubisoft, EA DICE, Starbreeze Studios, Epic Games, Hazelight, and more.
