Director of new Witcher game tackles crunch: ‘Never on my watch!’


The director of the upcoming Witcher game is trying to calm CD Projekt Red’s concerns about austerity culture.

Jason Slama – director of the indie card game Gwent for the past few years – a tweet He will be the director of the latest game in The Witcher Saga (thanks Gamespot). While announcing his new role, Slama also encouraged people to apply for a range of roles the studio is currently performing.

Understandably, working for a company notorious for tight conditions during the development of Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher 3, some of the replies weren’t particularly exciting. After all, despite promising “more humane” working conditions for employees during development on Cyberpunk 2077, the team was subsequently pushed into a mandatory crunch in early 2020. After the game was finally delayed in September 2020, co-CEO Marcin Iwiński told investors about the studio’s crunch: “Actually, it wasn’t that bad — and it never was.” Iwinski later commented on his The comment apologized to CDPR staff, saying “I didn’t want to comment on Crunch, but I did, and I did it in a demeaning and harmful way.”

All of this led to some healthy skepticism in the reply, with one person quoting the retweet saying “You forgot to mention the horrible crunch and the check-in bonus of being treated like a dog.” Slama responded to the tweet, just Say “Never on my watch!”

His answer didn’t seem to convince people entirely, but it seems CDPR is trying to distance itself from the negative austerity culture surrounding its first two games. Who knows if this mantra will continue as development progresses slowly, but committing to minimizing it is just the beginning.
