The Witcher series’ lead gameplay designer Maciej Szcześnik and gameplay producer Marek Ziemak have both joined 11 bit studios, the company announced this morning. At the studio, Szcześnik is the lead designer of a brand new game in development.

“I’ll be responsible for the entire design of a game that took shape in my imagination,” he said in a statement. “It’s a really exciting feeling to create a new world from scratch, make its characters and rules and to know that I have this blank page to fill with my ideas and then bring them to life.”


Meanwhile, Ziemak’s role at 11 bit is a little more mysterious, and will be announced “soon,” alongside news of the studio’s projects. Judging by a comment released by Ziemak, though, it sounds like it could be related to indie games.


“I’ve been watching the indie-game scene for quite some time and I love its creativity and freshness,” Ziemak stated. “Without going into details, expect some hot news from us around March.”
