“We are pleased with the pace at which we implemented our strategic goals last year, but we know that the market judges us primarily through the prism of our products. Activities related to the ‘Outriders’ debut were opened on February 25, 2021 by the game’s demo, released on all platforms (except Google Stadia), which in the first week from its release reached over 2 million downloads. The full game premiered on April 1, 2021 and a month after its premiere, it exceeded the number of 3.5 million unique users. The emerging technical errors slightly cooled the initial enthusiasm of players and reviewers. Together with the publisher, we immediately started the process of improving and balancing the game, ”wrote President Sebastian Wojciechowski in a letter to shareholders.
“Our ambition for 2022 is to move key projects from pre-production to production. We also do not rule out further acquisitions in the near future. We also create publishing structures within the group. We already have a team of outstanding experts in the group building the foundations for self-publishing activities. We are planning a further reconstruction of the group’s structures in order to manage the company’s growth more efficiently and to care for the satisfaction of our Aviators more effectively. We intend to continue the business and cultural transformation of the group with an emphasis on consolidating and strengthening the global nature of the People Can Fly studio and brand ”- summed up the president.
