The Witcher 3 director steps down following workplace bullying investigation

Konrad Tomaszkiewicz, one of the veterans from CD Projekt Red, has left the company today, following the investigation against him of alleged workplace bullying.

Tomaszkiewicz served as the game director on The Witcher 3, as well as the head of production on Cyberpunk 2077.

According to a report from Bloomberg, Tomaszkiewicz was involved in a workplace bullying investigation, and although his name was cleared by the investigation, he still decided to resign.

Bloomberg reports that Tomaszkiewicz wrote an email to CD Projekt staff, where he confirmed that a commission investigating the case has found him not guilty.

"Nonetheless, a lot of people are feeling fear, stress or discomfort when working with me," Tomaszkiewicz wrote and apologized to staff "for all the bad blood I have caused."

Furthermore, Tomaszkiewicz said that he is going to "continue working on myself," and added: "Changing behaviour is a long and arduous process, but I’m not giving up, and I hope to change."

Tomaszkiewicz worked for CD Projekt Red since the early days of the company. He served as a story designer on 2007's The Witcher and lead quest designer on The Witcher 2.

He was to play a leading role in the work on the new The Witcher game, which is currently in pre-production.

It seems that bad news for CD Projekt RED simply won't stop coming this year, following the disastrous launch of Cyberpunk 2077 and everything that came out of it.

The company currently works on the next patch for Cyberpunk 2077 which will hopefully fix the ongoing issues with the game, and in the upcoming months, we can expect to see some of the first DLCs for the game as well.
