Dying Light Dev Picks Up Gwent's Lead Designer for New IP

Techland is working on something brand-new and Gwent designer Damien Monnier is likely on the project.

Former CD Projekt RED developer Damien Monnier has landed a new position at Dying Light developer Techland, according to reporting by Eurogamer. Monnier was previously a senior gameplay designer on The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and the lead designer on CDPR's upcoming card game Gwent. Monnier left CD Projekt Red last month.

Probably like this, but with castles and such.

"As a whole, we're extremely excited to welcome all the recent additions to the Techland family. We've got really big ambitions for our next internally developed games so people with ingenious ideas as well as the skill and knowledge to bring them to life are absolutely essential," Techland said in a statement.

Monnier will reportedly be working on Techland's new IP. The developer is working on two titles currently: one developed in Wroclaw, Poland by the same team that worked on Dying Light and the other developed in Warsaw, Poland. The latter is planned as an open-world fantasy title with RPG elements. Given Monnier's experience and CD Projekt RED's primary studio being in Warsaw, it's likely that he's moving to that project at Techland.
