Rumor: Witcher 3 Director Now Design Director On Cyberpunk 2077

It looks like Konrad Tomaszkiewicz, director of The Witcher 3 and its expansions, is now the design director for Cyberpunk 2077 and has also become developer CD Projekt Red's vice president of game development, according to a recent LinkedIn profile update.

Tomaszkiewicz looks to have updated his LinkedIn profile to say that, as of February of this year, he is "CD Projekt Red’s Vice President of Game Development / Design Director - Cyberpunk 2077." Previously, he was simply listed as the game director for The Witcher 3's Blood and Wine expansion.

The update comes in the wake of news that the game's former creative director, Sebastian Stępień, has seemingly left the company to work at Blizzard instead.  Considering the technical difference in titles involved it's hard know for sure how this will impact the development of the game, this could point toward whatever changes took place internally after Stępień left now being official.

You can watch our 2013 interview with Tomaszkiewicz about his history with CD Projekt RED and working with his brother below.
