Cyberpunk 2077 has a new game director, according to one GamesIndustry report, which says Gabriel Amatangelo, who joined the studio in January 2020 as creative director, has now taken on the role.
Amatangelo will take over from Adam Badowski, who is also the head of the CD Projekt Red studio. The change will apparently allow Badowski to focus more on this role, which is presumably a higher priority now that the studio is moving to a multiplayer development strategy.
Amatangelo's hands will also be full. Cyberpunk 2077 had a rough shape at launch and remains so, despite the release of several patches in later months. CD Projekt is committed to doing just that however, following this: the multiplayer plan has changed, but the joint CEO, Adam Kiciński, said in April that the studio is "convinced that we can bring the game to such a state that we can to be proud. " He delayed the planned DLC updates earlier this year, so he could focus on fixing the game, but promised that they will still come.
This is the current development roadmap:
Prior to joining CD Projekt, Amatangelo was at BioWare, where he was the design director for the Dragon Age DLC: Inquisition Trespasser and Jaws of Hakkon. He also worked on Star Wars: The Old Republic and The Rise of the Hutt Cartel and the Galactic Starfighter expansions.
The report also indicates that Mateusz Tomaszkiewicz, formerly the director of missions for Cyberpunk 2077, has left the studio. I have contacted CD Projekt for comments and will update if I receive a response.
