11 Bit Studios Hires Former The Witcher Developers

11 Bit Studios, the team behind Anomaly 2, announced today two major hires, both from CD Projekt Red, the team behind the two Witcher games. Lead Gameplay Designer Maciej Szcześnik and Gameplay Producer Marek Ziemak are joining the team, and bringing their wealth of knowledge with them.

Szcześnik, who will be lead designer on an announced game from 11 Bit, said,  “I’m absolutely looking forward to working here. I’ll be responsible for the entire design of a game that took shape in my imagination. It’s a really exciting feeling to create a new world from scratch, make its characters and rules and to know that I have this blank page to fill with my ideas and then bring them to life.”

Ziemak’s role will be defined in the near future, as well as what upcoming projects the duo will be involved in.  Considering they helped create one of the best video game characters of the generation, it looks like 11 Bit’s fortunes are on the rise.
