It’s not unheard of for game’s to change directors during development, whether it’s because of illness, delays, or a director simply leaving a studio. It is fairly rare for a game to change directors after it comes out, but that’s exactly what’s happening at CD Projekt RED, according to a new report from GamesIndustry.biz.

Former Cyberpunk 2077 director Adam Badowski is stepping down from his role to take on other leadership roles inside CD Projekt RED, including the studio’s transition into developing multiple AAA projects simultaneously. The move means that neither of Cyberpunk‘s original directors are no longer working on the game. Konrad Tomaszkiewicz, the director of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and the second director and head of production on Cyberpunk, departed the studio earlier this month after accusations of bullying.

Gabriel Amatangelo will replace Badowski in the director’s chair. Amatangelo joined CD Projekt RED as a creative director in 2020. Before joining CD Projekt RED, he worked at BioWare as design director on Dragon Age: Inquisition DLC and directed several expansions for Star Wars: The Old Republic. He will be charged with leading development on Cyberpunk 2077‘s expansions. CD Projekt Red is also still trying to get the game back on the PlayStation Store.
