Witcher 3 director resigns from CD Projekt RED
Konrad Tomaszkiewicz, from the investigation giving his resignation despite being acquitted “He apologized for all the anger he caused,” he said. This is how Konrad Tomaszkiewicz, director of Witcher 3 and second director and production chairman of Cyberpunk 2077, resigned from CD Projekt RED. BloombergHe reported that Konrad was the subject of a lengthy internal investigation based on allegations of bullying. While a commission formed for the investigation found him not guilty, Tomaszkiewicz nevertheless chose to resign from his job.
“Many people feel fear, stress, or discomfort when working with me,” wrote the Witcher 3 director in an e-mail to the CD Projekt RED team, despite being cleared. He left, apologizing for any resentment he had caused, and said he was planning to work to change his behavior.
Konrad Tomaszkiewicz has been working on CD Projekt RED for a long time, and his work dates back to the story design of the first Witcher game released in 2007. He worked as chief mission designer on The Witcher 2 before taking the role of director for The Witcher 3 and its expansions Hearts of Stone and Blood & Wine. Cyberpunk first became design director in 2077 and later became vice president of game development at CD Projekt RED. This makes him an important name for the company as it is and increases the importance of his loss.
Tomaszkiewicz’s resignation came a month after Andrzej Zawadzki, the lead game designer for Cyberpunk 2077, left the company. Following the release of Cyberpunk, CD Projekt RED has not only been dragged into a really difficult process, it continues to lose important employees.
