For a while, it seemed like CD Projekt Red couldn’t be touched. The Witcher series is in the conversation for the best game series ever, and Cyberpunk 2077 is on the horizon. Well, the author of The Witcher Andrzej Sapkowski is realizing his worth is more than the game studio is paying him. According to the CD Projekt Red website, Andrzej wants them to pay him $16.1 million more in royalties.
Andrzej’s lawyers claim that the law in Poland entitles him more than what they originally gave him. Translation: CD Projekt Red made way more than I thought the series was worth years ago when I originally agreed on terms. We will see what happens with this situation, but hopefully CD Projekt Red and Andrzej can resolve things peacefully.
