Mateusz Tomaszkiewicz, Quest Designer for Cyberpunk 2077 has officially confirmed that he's leaving CD Projekt Red after 12 years with the company. "This decision didn’t come lightly, but I feel like it’s time for a change," he said.

Cyberpunk 2077 has lost its Quest Designer, Mateusz Tomaszkiewicz, who announced his departure from the company via Twitter and LinkedIn. Tomaszkiewicz has been a member of CD Projekt Red studio for more than 12 years, working on The Witcher franchise, Thronebreaker and most recently, Cyberpunk 2077.

Tomaszkiewicz has worked as Quest Director, Game Director and Principal Narrative Designer during his tenure in Polish studio. In his goodbye message, Tomaszkiewicz did not state the reason for his departure but did say it wasn't an easy decision. 

"After twelve years of work at CDPR I’ve made a decision to leave the company and to look elsewhere for new adventures. This decision didn’t come lightly, but I feel like it’s time for a change," he wrote in the post on LinkedIn.

He added that he enjoyed his time at CDPR and is grateful for the opportunity to work on such big titles. At the time of writing, Tomaszkiewicz did not reveal where his next venture will be. 

"I don't know yet where I will go next, for now, I'm planning to spend some time recharging before I move on for the next exciting thing," he concluded.

CD Projekt already confirmed that they have appointed Gabriel Amatangelo as a new director of Cyberpunk 2077 as the company seeks to recover from the game's bug-ridden release last year.
