In a press release (via Rock Paper Shotgun) Techland CEO Paweł Marchewka said: “Our ambition is to introduce a brand new [intellectual property] that is vastly different from what we have been doing for the past several years.
“We want to create a fully next-gen experience. A new fantasy epic set in a sprawling open world, fuelled by the skills and experience we have gained as a team over the years, infused with new ideas, passion, and creativity.”
The creative director job listing asks the applicant to be “defining a clear, creative vision for the game and establishing the foundations of the game (meaning, experience, context, player fantasy, world, etc),” and to have six plus years of leadership on AAA games.
