Konrad Tomaszkiewicz, who served as the design director on the much-acclaimed Cyberpunk 2077 as well as the game director on The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has left CD Projekt SA. According to a report from Bloomberg, the departure is happening following allegations of workplace bullying, which the director was cleared of.
CDPR managed to form a commission and then conducted an investigation that managed to span months after Konrad was accused of bullying. According to the report, he emailed the staff and told them that the commission did not find him guilty of workplace bullying but even despite his innocence, he has decided to leave the company.
Tomaszkiewicz sent an email to the staff and noted that he has resigned because of fear, stress, or the discomfort that the rest of the employees might be facing when working with them. IN addition to that, he has also apologized for all the “bad blood” that he may have created. Last but not the least, Tomaszkiewicz has mentioned how he plans on working himself and he is hoping that he is going to change his behavior.
The report also claims that Tomaszkiewicz had a vital part when it comes to CD Projekt’s entry into the Witcher series, to begin with. Which ended up becoming one of the monumental launches in the gaming industry.
CDPR has been having a rough time after the launch of Cyberpunk 2077’s rocky launch; despite the massive success that the game has seen, there are a lot of things that are still wrong with the game and while the company is committed to fixing the game, it is still going to take some time before the game reaches the state CDPR wanted it to be, in the first place. That added with the fact that Tomaszkiewicz is no longer part of the company might raise some challenges for the future of Cyberpunk 2077.
