Half the money is being donated by the company's shareholders, and the other half by the company as a whole.

CD Projekt RED, developers of popular game The Witcher and the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077, have donated $950,000 in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic.

As per a report in Android Central, the developer revealed how the company was staying updated during the whole pandemic situation, adding that the world is seeing a daily increase in cases and that there’s a rising need for every possible help.
