The Witcher developer lays off some of his CD Projekt Red teams | -WhatsNew2Day


CD Projekt Red, developer of The Witcher series, announced a few days ago its plans to develop a group of previously announced projects from the same series. After this announcement, we thought that the team was moving at a steady pace, but it seems that things have lost their balance a bit by laying off a group of employees.

According to what was posted on the website VGCThese layoffs mostly affected developers at The Molasses Flood studio of CD Projekt Red, which was acquired in 2021. This team is also responsible for developing one of the titles of the upcoming The Witcher series. A CD Projekt spokesperson said that the reason for laying off a group of developers is due to a change in the development plan for upcoming games and thus the lack of need for some developers.

21 developers in the United States lost their jobs, as well as eight of the employees who were working on the project in the Poland branch, bringing the number of developers who were laid off to 29 developers.

The team stated last October that it had “an innovative idea for the Witcher universe in development on The Molasses Flood. CD Projekt CEO said Adam Kisinski at that time:

“The game will take place in the world of The Witcher, but it differs from our previous releases in that it is aimed at a much broader audience. The next Sirius will offer both single and multiplayer gameplay.”

However, the team suggested in March that it would reassess the game’s scope and commercial potential. Indeed, in a regulatory announcement last week, CD Projekt informed investors that it had completed work on defining a new framework or restructuring for Sirius.

Does the exit of these developers affect the next project in the series, in your opinion?
