An ex-BioWare developer has joined CD Projekt RED to put Cyberpunk 2077 into a proper shape (which is needed, as the game launched in a subpar format).
CD Projekt RED (CDPR onwards) announced that Adam Badowski has stepped down from the directorial role of Cyberpunk 2077. He will focus on other leadership duties within the studio. According to Gamesindustry, he will play a pivotal role in the CDPR 2.0 transition (we previously talked about how the Poles’ approach to game development is going to significantly change). Badowski is one of those people within CDPR who got a hefty cash bonus at the end of the fiscal year (in April). He got 4.2 million dollars, which didn’t get much praise within the studio.
The new Cyberpunk 2077 director is Gabriel Amatangelo. He joined CDPR in January 2020 to be the game’s creative director. Before this tenure, he spent nearly six years at BioWare, where he worked as Dragon Age: Inquisition DLC’s design director and designer on various Star Wars: The Old Republic expansions. He spent over 10 years within Electronic Arts overall.
We wrote this a couple of days ago: „And still, Cyberpunk 2077 is not available on the PlayStation Store after Sony removed it in December. Adam Kiciński, CDPR’s CEO said the following about this situation: „Unfortunately, I have no new information in this regard. We are still in discussions and with every patch, the game gets better and there is visible progress, but as we said the decision is an exclusive decision of Sony, so we are waiting for the information about the fact that they decided to bring back this game. Until then I am not able to tell you anything more.””
And the best part is that the game’s next-gen version is yet to be released in the second half of the year…
