The Witcher 4 game director doesn’t promise a crisis

A new title in CD Projekt Red’s massively successful Witcher series was announced this week, with the untitled game currently in development and moving to a new engine. In response to a tweet referencing mandatory crunch practices on Cyberpunk 2077 and Witcher 3, the new game’s director said things would be different this time around.

In a tweet, CD Projekt Red developer Jason Slama announced that he will be working on the next Witcher game as Game Director. After contributing to both Witcher 3 and the studio’s standalone Gwent title as programmer, Slama has served as game director on Gwent since late 2018 and will now take on that role for the studio’s next big AAA game.
