CD Projekt Red and Witcher author Andrzej Sapkowski have signed a new agreement “further solidifying their relationship,” the studio announced in a press release today. It said it’s received new rights to the property, but didn’t go into more detail. Sapkowski had previously threatened to sue for additional royalties.
From what I understand CDPR went above and beyond what most companies would do to try to appease him and continued to offer money long after the agreement was signed and Witcher 3 exploded into mainstream popularity. Dude didn’t think the games were going to be successful, was quickly proven wrong and then spent years talking mad shit.
