Metro 2033 Author Calls The Witcher Author an “Arrogant Motherfucker” and Says That He’s Totally Wrong

Andrzej Sapkowski’s comments didn’t stay uncommented.

Sapkowski talked to Waypoint, where he said that CD Projekt RED’s games did not make him famous outside Poland, and that his works’ translations came out earlier than the first The Witcher game. That’s not true: The Witcher came out in the autumn of 2007, while the English Blood of Elves translation dropped in 2008.

Sapkowski also added that he lost about the same amount of book sales because of the games as much as he gained thanks to them. He still doesn’t have a good opinion on video games.

Dmitry Glukhovsky, the writer of the Metro series, couldn’t leave these comments without giving his opinion. He firmly thinks Sapkowski is wrong, and he also called him an „arrogant motherf__ker”. Glukhovsky is thankful for 4A Games’ work, because they made him known outside Eastern Europe. He also works closely together with the game developers, sometimes even changing his work to make it suitable for them. Meanwhile, Sapkowski just wanted the money outright in one piece, and after the franchise’s success, he gets no extra cash off the sales…

Two different opinions collide over one subject.
