Witcher 3 director Konrad Tomaszkiewicz has resigned from CD Projekt Red following an internal investigation into alleged workplace bullying, Bloomberg reports. Tomaszkiewicz, who was secondary game director and production manager at Cyberpunk 2077, denies the allegations, but apologized “for all the bad blood I’ve caused” in an email to CD Project staff.
In the email, which Bloomberg says they have seen, Tomaszkiewicz writes that a commission had been set up to investigate allegations of bullying in the workplace and that he had been cleared. “Nevertheless, many people feel fear, stress or discomfort when working with me,”
Tomaszkiewicz has been working on CD Projekt since 2004, starting as a junior tester and then designing on The Witcher 1, before becoming a leading quest designer on The Witcher 2 and game director on The Witcher 3.
In March, CD Projekt Red announced plans to restructure their team to support the simultaneous development of their two major series, The Witcher and Cyberpunk 2077. This was part of their efforts to train properly after the buggy, disappointing launch of Cyberpunk – which yet sold over 13 million copies.
The company has continued to patch and update Cyberpunk 2077 with the latest hotfix released just last week.
