After the release of Cyberpunk 2077, CD Project RED has ended up in the eye of the storm for the controversy caused by the unacceptable old-gen version of the title.
Despite patches and hotfixes of all kinds related to their latest game, the bad news for the Polish developer does not seem to end there.
The director of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, the most successful video game for the Polish publisher, he resigned after facing allegations of bullying in the workplace.
The company had conducted a several-month-long investigation into various bullying allegations against the game director Konrad Tomaszkiewicz, according to what reported by Bloomberg.
As confirmed by the foreign newspaper, Tomaszkiewicz said weeks ago that a commission had been set up to examine the allegations and that following the investigation it was found not guilty.
“However, many people experience fear, stress or discomfort when working with me”, wrote the former director, who apologized to the staff “For all the bitter blood it caused”.
Reached by Jason Schreier for a comment, Tomaszkiewicz confirmed his departure from the company, declaring himself sad, a little disappointed and resigned.
In emails to employees, Tomaszkiewicz said the decision was agreed with the board of directors di CD Projekt. “I will continue to work on myself”, he wrote. “Changing attitude is a long and arduous process, but I don’t give up and I hope to succeed.”
Tomaszkiewicz has also been credited as co-director as well as head of production for Cyberpunk 2077.
Tomaszkiewicz’s work on The Witcher 3 was certainly commendable, also inspiring the creation of the popular Netflix series, which in turn was based on the novels by author Andrzej Sapkowski.
Its abandonment is a sign that in CD Projekt the waters do not seem to have calmed down, so much so that to date the game is still absent from the PlayStation Store.
Despite the negative reception, the Polish developer has recorded excellent feedback from the point of view of sales, something that should not be overlooked.
