The Witcher 3 Director Leaves CD Projekt Red

Konra Tomaszkiewicz, the director for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and second director of last year’s Cyberpunk 2077, has left CD Projekt Red.

According to a recent Bloomberg report, the veteran game designer since 2007 was the subject of a lengthy internal investigation based on accusations of bullying. He was found not guilty, though he chose to resign from his job. He wrote an email to the CD Projekt staff that despite having his name cleared, he felt that “a lot of people are feeling fear, stress, or discomfort when working with me”. Hence, he resigned and apologized “for all the bad blood” he caused, promising to change his behaviour in the future.

The resignation came a month after Cyberpunk 2077’s lead gameplay designer Andrzej Zawadzki left the company.
