At a time when CD Projekt RED is working hard to fix all the problems encountered with Cyberpunk 2077, today we learn that Andrzej Zawadzki, one of the main gameplay designers for Cyberpunk 2077 has announced that he left the Polish studio after almost eight years working with the studio.
After almost 8 years, my time at CDPR has come to an end. It's time for the new adventure.
To every person I've met on the way – thank you 🙂 It was an honor and pleasure.
See you around 🙂 pic.twitter.com/Hts3TE9VzW

In the tweet you can see many of his colleagues saying goodbye, although the reason for his departure is unknown, since it is not clear if he has been fired or has decided to leave the studio after what happened with Cyberpunk 2077, he even received death threats after generating the huge snowball with a game full of defects. As he responded to Kyle Rowley, who worked on Cyberpunk 2077 and is now the director of an unannounced game for Remedy, he will be taking “a long vacation” for now.
Good luck @ZawAndy ! Where you off too?
