Former CD Projekt Red employees open a new studio and create a dark fantasy role-playing game


Former employees CD Projekt Red (CDPR) open a new studio called Rebel Wolves, and on Wednesday they shared the first details about the new venture. Fans of The Game Witcher 3: Wild Hunt from CDPR may be happy to hear that the first game Rebel Wolves sounds like it could be the spiritual successor to the hit game.

Described by company co-founder Konrad Tomaszkiewicz as a “AAA dark fantasy, story-driven, open-world RPG” and based on a new franchise from the co-founder Rebel Wolves Yakub Samelek, who also worked on The Witcher 3 and Cyberpunk 2077. “In general, the game will be similar in scale to the expansion blood and wine for The Witcher 3but it will be much more non-linear,” Tomashkevich said. Rebel Wolves plans to release it on PC, PS5 and Xbox Series X/S.

Rebel Wolves is still at the very beginning of its journey – Tomashkevich said that the studio plans to release the first game in 2025 – and the company said in a press release that it will be hiring employees in the coming months. The company’s goal is to create a medium-sized studio with about 80 people. Tomashkevich finances Rebel Wolves alone and the studio is looking for business partners.

Tomashkevich, who was also the head of production Cyberpunk 2077 and secondary game director, left CDPR in May, where he was accused of bullying colleagues. CDPR conducted an investigation into the accusations against Tomashkevich and in the message he stated that the commission found him innocent.
