Several top developers who worked for CD Projekt Red have revealed their new game studio and teased their first project. Mateusz Kanik, the game director of Cyberpunk 2077 and co-game director of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, has formed Blank. alongside Witcher and Cyberpunk executive producers: Jedrzej Mróz and Marcin Jefimow. 

In an online statement, Kanik said: “We’re thrilled to announce Blank. and to start expanding our incredible team. After working for years in an increasingly conservative industry, we’re ready to make bold, impactful projects that share our unique creativity and values.Where the industry champions a dictatorship of the creative individual, we want to give ownership to the team. Where the industry leans on crunch culture, we prefer work-life balance. Where the industry says bigger is better, we’re setting our sights on highly polished games with a focus on emotion, story, and craftsmanship.”

The Warsaw-based studio has shared on its website that the studio’s first game will be a character-driven story game set in the apocalypse. The website reads: “We’ve had our share of creating huge, super complicated games with open worlds. That’s why, we focus on simpler goals – uniqueness, emotions, quality, and refinement.”

The new studio already employs 10 team members, including CD Projekt Red alumni and staff who have previously worked at Division 48 studios and 11 Bit Studios. The studio is looking to expand to hire 60 people to work on its first title.

Marcin Jefimow, Blank. Co-founder and executive producer, said: “Our game development philosophy comes from our own stories and experiences. With Blank. we want to build a space where we can honor our histories, but also be playful and open to brand-new inspirations as we collaborate creatively. We’ve already got a head start on a budding new project that we can’t wait to share with players and craft with new team members.”
