In the midst of the many news of news coming from CD Projekt RED there is also the official statement in which the co-CEO Marcin Iwinski reports theabandoning his role as team leaderremaining within the company but with a different and probably less operational position.
“I am starting a new personal chapter in CD Project RED, with a request to join as chairman of the supervisory board, leaving my role as co-CEO. By the end of 2022, I will leave my commitments in the hands of my colleagues”, wrote Iwinski. It is about one of the founders of CD Projekt RED and a figure who has always been fundamental for the team, so his departure from the role of CEO, although he remains within the company, is of considerable value.
As reported in the rest of the release, Iwinski has been within the team for 30 years and is happy with how it has grown, becoming a colossus with over 1200 employees spread over various offices around the world, and above all driven by a great passion and great talent of developers.
We do not yet know who will replace Marcin Iwiński in his role or if any set-up changes are planned following this retirement, but in the meantime we record this change which, apparently, does not come in a problematic period for the team: CD Projekt RED has in fact just announced a series of very ambitious projects for the next few years.
In addition to a follow-up to Cyberpunk 2077, a new trilogy and two third party games on The Witcher, the team also has a new intellectual property, currently called Hadar, in development.
