One of The Witcher 3’s game director’s has moved over to the Cyberpunk 2077 crew. Konrad Tomaszkiewicz, who has been with developer CD Projekt Red since 2004, has additionally been named the corporate’s vice chairman of game growth.
That data comes by way of Tomaszkiewicz’s LinkedIn account (by way of PCGamer). Given that Cyberpunk 2077’s growth is known to be nicely underway, the timeframe is slightly unusual, significantly as Geralt’s last journey launched in 2016. It’s potential, then, that the brand new function is meant to fill the hole left by fellow game director Sebastian Stepien, who left CDPR for Blizzard earlier this year. The Witcher 3’s third game director, Mateusz Kanik, is now additionally engaged on the brand new game.
It’s additionally price declaring that we don’t know the Cyberpunk 2077 release date simply but. We can take some guesses as to when it’ll really come out, however all of these are prone to go away the brand new design director loads of time to make his mark on the game.
Tomaszkiewicz is one thing of a veteran of CDPR, having joined the corporate over 15 years in the past. His first function was as a junior tester on the primary Witcher game, and a number of other different positions all through his time on the firm included work on the remainder of the trilogy.
Tomaszkiewicz’s transfer to the Cyberpunk crew would possibly recommend that The Witcher 4 release date continues to be a way off. That’s a little bit of a given, after all – CDPR says there will be another game in the series, however for Tomaszkiewicz to maneuver away from Geralt could possibly be a touch that CDPR’s subsequent journey to the world of the Witcher might be nonetheless in its early phases.
