He apologizes “for all the bad blood I’ve caused.”
Konrad Tomaszkiewicz, who was the director of the game in the CD-appraised CD Projekt The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, resigned from the company following an investigation into workplace harassment.
According to Bloomberg, Tomaszkiewicz was at the center of a month-long investigation into allegations of harassment on CD Projekt.
Although the investigation eventually found him innocent, Tomashkevich told colleagues in an e-mail announcing his resignation, as seen by Bloomberg, “that many people experience fear, stress or discomfort when working with me.”
He went on to apologize “for all the bad blood I caused”, noting that his departure was made in agreement with the studio board.
“I will continue to work on myself,” Tomaszkiewicz continued. “Behavior change is a long and difficult process, but I’m not giving up and I hope it changes.”
Tomaszkiewicz began his career at CD Projekt in 2004 as a junior tester and participated in all three of Witcher’s games – starting as a first installment designer before rising to become director of The Witcher 3. and its extensions.
He was recently co-director and production manager at the troubled Cyberpunk 2077 and was expected to play an important role in Witcher’s next play.
