Lead Gameplay Designer On Cyberpunk 2077 Is Leaving CD Projekt RED

Andrzej Zawadzki, the lead gameplay designer on troubled sci-fi epic Cyberpunk 2077, has confirmed he is leaving CD Projekt RED, having spent nearly eight years with the Polish studio.

Zawadzki announced the news on Twitter, which you can see below.


Originally joining the studio as a QA tester, Zawadzki worked on the likes of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and DLC expansions Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine. He then took on the role of Junior Gameplay Designer five years ago, which lead to him getting involved in the creation of Cyberpunk 2077.

During this time, he assumed a number of roles including RPG Coordinator and finally Senior Gameplay Designer in March 2020.

Zawadzki was among those who responded to the various death threats issued at CDPR employees regarding the troubles surrounding Cyberpunk 2077, branding them “absolutely unacceptable and just wrong.”
