A scam like a Hollywood movie.

CD Projekt, creator of the Witcher series and the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 concluded agreement with Andrzej Sapkowski, author of the Witcher Saga.

The company announced today that "an agreement has been written to strengthen and seal mutual relations." The official statement in this matter does not give details, we have only learned that the agreed arrangements meet and fully explain the needs and expectations of both parties while respecting previously concluded agreements and outline the framework for future cooperation between the parties.

Importantly, agreement gives the CD Project a right for the exploitation of the Witcher universe in the field of video games, comics, traditional games and merchandising.

It is worth recalling that in October last year Andrzej Sapkowski handed over to the company demand for payment. The writer demanded from the company "additional remuneration in addition to those specified in the contracts concluded between him and the Company," and the amount of the claim was usd 60 million. Attorney Andrzej Sapkowski referred to the specific legal basis contained in art. 44 of the Copyright Act.
