Back in 2018 Andrzej Sapkowski, the author behind The Witcher novels, initiated legal action against CD Projekt RED as he felt he wasn't adequately compensated for his contribution to the success of the franchise. But now, without going into any legal details, this announcement on CD Projekt's website lets us know that a new agreement between the two parties has been struck, opening up opportunities for future cooperation. Have a look:
CD PROJEKT, creators of “The Witcher” series of games and upcoming role-playing game “Cyberpunk 2077”, together with Andrzej Sapkowski, author of “The Witcher” books, would like to inform that today both parties signed an agreement further solidifying their relationship.
“We’ve always admired Mr. Andrzej Sapkowski’s works — a great inspiration for the team here at CD PROJEKT RED,” says Adam Kiciński, President and Joint CEO, CD PROJEKT. “I believe today marks a new stage in our continued relationship,” Kiciński concludes.
The agreement satisfies and fully clarifies the needs and expectations of both parties, past and present, and sets out a framework for the future cooperation between the two sides.
The agreement grants CD PROJEKT new rights, as well as confirms the company’s title to “The Witcher” intellectual property in video games, graphic novels, board games, and merchandise.
