This will be the first update following a tumultuous year for the developer. It follows another made back in January 2020 indicating how the initial spring 2020 release was getting pushed back. PCGamesN then reported that Techland had severed ties with one of its writers amid controversy. Most recently, narrative lead Pawel Selinger decided to move on after 22 years with Techland. He expressed his gratitude and wished the best for the team. He hopes the new game and others will be big hits for them.
