Zawadzki announced the news on Twitter, which you can see below.
After almost 8 years, my time at CDPR has come to an end. It's time for the new adventure.
To every person I've met on the way – thank you 🙂 It was an honor and pleasure.
See you around 🙂 pic.twitter.com/Hts3TE9VzW

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.”
Cyberpunk 2077 was released for PS4, PC and Xbox One in December 2020 after an arduous development cycle, and was met with overwhelming criticism for its poor performance on current-generation harware.
