Konrad Tomaszkiewicz was going to take the reins of the next game in the series.
Konrad Tomaszkiewicz, director of CD Projekt’s most representative game, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, has left the Polish studio. Agree With the Bloomberg portal, the creative had received complaints of harassment from his co-workers and underwent an investigation. The latter did not find him guilty. “However, many people feel fear, stress or insecurity when they work with me” acknowledges in an email intercepted by this source, and apologizes “for the discomfort that I have caused“.
The well-known journalist Jason Schreier claims to have contacted Tomaszkiewicz, and his response is that he feels “sad, disappointed and resigned“Although it is not the only statement he has issued, as he would also have written to company employees to say that the decision had been approved by the higher echelons of CD Projekt and that he would continue to work on himself.” Changing behavior is a long and difficult process, but i won’t give up, and I hope to change“.
The dome of CD Projekt approved the departure of the creative No more details have been shared about the type of experiences initially reported by the rest of the employees, although recalling it is not the first time that we have news about the disagreement behind the offices of CD Projekt: the most notorious case is that of labor abuses and intense working hours that gave rise to Cyberpunk 2077, a game that has had a good start in sales, but a very mixed reception.
Considering that The Witcher 3 is still selling well even six years after its initial release, it’s no wonder CD Projekt has an interest in continue marketing Andrzej Sapkowski’s book saga (which is now also a hit on Netflix). Tomaszkiewicz was going to be in charge of carrying out the next delivery, so we will have to wait to see who gets back to work.
