Cyberpunk 2077 now has a new game director to oversee the future of the game’s content releases including the future updates and expansions planned. Gabriel Amatangelo, the former creative director on Cyberpunk 2077, will now take over as the new game director with Adam Badowski no longer in the position he’s been in since the game’s launch. Badowski will still be with CD Projekt, however, and will take on “other leadership duties.”
News of the transitions within the Cyberpunk 2077 development team came from GamesIndustry.biz which reported on the news this week. The new game director Amatangelo joined CD Projekt back in January 2020 and worked as a creative director for Cyberpunk 2077 before moving into his current position. In the past, he worked on DLC for Dragon Age: Inquisition and also worked on new content for Star Wars: The Old Republic.
The appointing of a new game director wasn’t the only change that’s happened within the Cyberpunk 2077 team lately either. Mateusz Tomaszkiewicz, the now former quest director for Cyberpunk 2077, announced this week that he was leaving not only his position but CD Projekt Red as a whole. He didn’t give an indication for why he wanted to leave other than saying he felt like “it’s time for a change” and that he wasn’t sure where he’d end up next.
As for Amatangelo’s new responsibilities, he’ll be the one spearheading the content coming in future expansions.
