CD Projekt Red posted an organizational update today announcing they are reducing its workforce by 10 percent, or roughly 100 people departing by March 2024.
CD Projekt Red’s CEO Adam Kiciński announced that the studio is undergoing “several deep transformations” to continue making games “on time and without crunch,” they must refocus its development process.
“To meet our own high expectations and ambitions to create the best role-playing games, we not only want to have the best people but also the right teams,” Kiciński said. “What we mean by that is having teams that are built around our projects’ needs; teams that are more agile and more effective. At this point in time, we’re certain that for CD Projekt Red to grow, we need to be consistent in implementing that approach.”
Kiciński goes on to say, “In the spirit of transparency, we’ve chosen to share the information now. We want team members to have ample time to process and adjust to the change, and we’ve also made sure to offer everyone a comprehensive severance package.”
