We finally found out who will be the director of the new Witcher gaming saga. The team was led by Sebastian Kalemba, a longtime CD Projekt employee who had been responsible for animation in the previous installments of the series.
Sebastian’s career has long been associated with The Witcher brand. Prior to joining CD Projekt RED, he worked at Platige Image, including on CGI trailers for The Witcher 3.
In 2014, he joined CDPR, where he first worked as lead animator on The Witcher 3, including expansion packs, and Cyberpunk 2077, before becoming lead animation director on all CD Projekt RED productions.
Last year, he took over as creative director at the studio, and is now director of a new series of The Witcher games.
As you can see, he has a lot of experience working on The Witcher brand. The developer himself commented on his new role as follows:
I’m the director of the new Witcher saga. Ever since I joined CD Projekt RED, I believe that nothing is impossible and that raising the bar, telling emotional stories and creating worlds is what we are here for. I am proud to be part of CDPR and to work with such a talented and passionate team.
Unfortunately, the next “Witcher” will have to wait a long time. Last month, a spokesperson for CD Projekt announced that the game would be released no earlier than 2025.
