CD Projekt’s co-founder and joint CEO is stepping down after nearly 30 years
Marcin Iwiński will take on a new non-executive role at the Witcher and Cyberpunk company
CD Projekt co-founder and joint CEO Marcin Iwiński has announced that he’s stepping down from his current role.
In a statement released on Tuesday, Iwiński said he was resigning his joint-CEO role and submitting his candidacy for the position of chairman of the company’s supervisory board.
“I’ve been at CD Projekt for almost 30 years and I have seen it go from a handful of passion-driven rebels to an internationally recognized developer of story-driven role playing games loved by million globally,” he said.
Cyberpunk 2077 — Our Commitment to Quality
“Back when Michal Kiciński and I founded the company, I don’t think either of us would have been able to imagine this incredible journey, not even in our wildest dreams.”
Iwiński’s statement was released alongside a major CD Projekt strategy update on Tuesday in which the company, which now has over 1,200 employees, said it plans to support three franchises going forwards.
CD Projekt announced plans for a Cyberpunk 2077 sequel codenamed ‘Project Orion’, a new trilogy of Witcher games, Witcher spin-offs, and an original IP.
“Our hugely ambitious strategy has such an inspiring and strong team at the helm, and I deeply believe in our plan to take CD Projekt to new heights,” Iwiński’s statement continued.
“As such, I intend to remain a major shareholder, and in my new non-executive role I will remain active and engaged dedicating my focus on supporting the entire management board.
“I will also remain connected to the core of what makes us special, which is making the best storytelling games in the world and doing right by gamers.”
