Adam Kiciński, CEO of CD Projekt Red, has announced that he will take on a supervisory role at the company in 2025 and will therefore step down from his position as CEO as part of a larger management restructuring.
Kiciński, who will have been with CD Projekt Red for 30 years starting in 2024, will step down as a member of the management board at the end of the year. Prior to that, he will transition from his current role as CEO to the role of Chief Strategy Officer effective January 1, 2024.
Current Chief Creative Officer Adam Badowski and current Chief Commercial Officer Michał Nowakowski will also take over as joint CEOs of CD Projekt Red starting January 1, 2024.

The Supervisory Board, which Kiciński joins, oversees CD Projekt Red’s activities and carries out its duties by making recommendations and passing resolutions. The co-founder and former co-CEO of CD Projekt, Marcin Iwiński, took the same step in October 2022, moving to the supervisory board and thereby resigning from his board duties.
Kiciński has been involved with CD Projekt Red since its founding in 1994 and has held various roles since then, including marketing director from 1999 to 2004, co-director in 2004, director in 2006 and more.
CD Projekt Red also announced today, October 5th, that Cyberpunk 2077 has sold 25 million units, overtaking The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt at this point in its life cycle. It has also been confirmed that a live-action cyberpunk project is in development.
