Cyberpunk 2077 has a new game director, according to a report from GamesIndustry, which says Gabriel Amatangelo, who joined the studio in January 2020 as creative director, has now taken over.
Amatangelo will replace Adam Badowski, who is also the head of studio at CD Projekt Red. The move will apparently allow Badowski to focus more on that role, which is likely a higher priority now that the studio is shifting to a multi-game development strategy.

Amatangelo's hands will also be busy. Cyberpunk 2077 was in disrepair at launch and remains so despite the release of several patches in the following months. However, CD Projekt has committed to keeping it: the multiplayer plan has changed, but Deputy CEO Adam Kiciński said in April that the studio is "convinced that we can bring the game to a state where we can be proud of it". He delayed planned DLC updates earlier this year so he could focus on fixing the game, but promised they would still come too.
Prior to joining CD Projekt, Amatangelo worked at BioWare, where he served as design director on Dragon Age: Inquisition DLCs Trespasser and Jaws of Hakkon. He also worked on Star Wars: The Old Republic, and the rise of the Hutt Cartel, and on the Galactic Starfighter expansions. The report also indicates that Mateusz Tomaszkiewicz, the former mission director on Cyberpunk 2077, has stepped down and left the studio.
