Former The Witcher developers Maciej Szczesnik and Marek Ziemak have announced their departure from CD Projekt RED. Both have instead joined indie studio 11 Bit Studios, in Warsaw.
Ziemak was originally gameplay producer at CD Projekt, while Szczesnik was a gameplay designer. At 11 Bit, Szczesnik will be leading development on a new project. Ziemak, on the other hand, has not yet revealed his position or role at the company.
"I'll be responsible for the entire design of a game that took shape in my imagination," said Szczesnik. "It's a really exciting feeling to create a new world from scratch, make its characters and rules and to know that I have this blank page to fill with my ideas and then bring them to life."
Ziemak also noted his excitement, saying, "I've been watching the indie-game scene for quite some time and I love its creativity and freshness."
Currently, 11 Bit is planning to make an announcement in March.
