In a surprising turn of events, according to Cyberpunk 2077’s Creative Director’s LinkedIn profile, Sebastian Stępień is now working with Blizzard Entertainment.
Cyberpunk 2077’s Creative Director Has Started Working with Blizzard
This news is a little surprising considering that the current game in development is the futuristic RPG Cyberpunk 2077 which is still awaiting a release date. Sebastian Stępień has worked with CD Projekt Red for over 12 years, previously working on The Witcher 3 as well as The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings. While it isn’t clear what he is working on with Blizzard, he still holds the same position as Creative Director. While working on the Witcher series and Cyberpunk 2077, he not only contributed as a dialogue writer but as narrative director, story designer and creative director. This news might mean that Cyperpunk 2077 is nearing completion, but no official announcements have been about this so far.
In a post on the message board ResetEra, a user posted Stępień’s LinkedIn profile that now says he has joined Blizzard working on an unnamed project. If you look at Blizzard’s current portfolio of games, where Stępień would fit in best, it would most likely be on a Diablo project possibly Diablo 4, as the developer had mentioned last year that multiple projects were in the works and more to be revealed in 2019. Blizzard at this time has not announced what Stępień would be working on.
