CD Projekt Red and Rockstar join multiple companies that have also already transitioned staff to telecommuting in an effort to keep staff healthy and flatten the coronavirus curve so hospitals can better deal with the incoming cases. Both Microsoft and Nintendo had people working from home at the beginning of March 2020. DICE began letting people telecommute on March 11, 2020. EA noted that it had people in its Milan, Seoul, Shanghai, Singapore at home working and only a few key staff members were in the office in Redwood Shores, California.
