Cyberpunk 2077 Finds New Game Director In Former Dragon Age Dev
The tale of Cyberpunk 2077 is a cautionary one, but it is one that is still attempting to be improved and become what everyone thought it would be. That said, one way to change things up and potentially improve is by bringing in someone new, which has happened with the appointment of Gabriel Amatangelo as the game’s new director.
It was recently revealed (via GamesIndustry.biz) that Gabriel Amatangelo is the new game director for Cyberpunk 2077. This is following the departure of quest director Mateusz Tomaszkiewicz, who left the studio. Amatangelo will be replacing Adam Badowski, who has stepped into a leadership role for CD Projekt RED and will focus on other duties within the company.
For those who don’t know, Amatangelo has previously worked as a design director on DLC for Dragon Age: Inquisition and he was a lead designer on a handful of expansions for Star Wars: The Old Republic. He came to CD Projekt in 2020 originally to be a creative director for Cyberpunk 2077, but now he is the head for the entire game, which is still in troubled waters. The developers are still attempting to get the game back on the PlayStation Store after it was removed shortly after launch.
It’s unknown what the future holds for Cyberpunk 2077 or when it will return to the PlayStation Store, but with a new director in charge, we can only hope something comes from the leadership change.
