The Witcher lead gameplay designer Maciej Szcześnik and gameplay producer Marek Ziemak have announced today that they are departing CD Projekt RED to join indie developer 11 Bit Studios.

“I’m absolutely looking forward to working here,” Maciej Szcześnik said. “I’ll be responsible for the entire design of a game that took shape in my imagination. 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.”

11 Bit Studios was founded by former CD Projekt staff members in 2010. It has since created the Anomaly series and also developed Sleepwalker’s Journey and Funky Smugglers.
