CD Projekt Red & Sapkowski close to a deal, hint future collabs

Andrzej Sapkowski versus CD Projekt Red saga may be coming to a favourable end for both parties soon as the former will get some compensation, although not as much as he asked for. Further cooperation was remotely hinted by the developer.

This is good, say what you will this dude work did make CDPR Billionaires. Yes, I know it was the excellent game they made that allowed them to succeed, but you can not deny the appeal that having the Witcher world helped them to be successful. So I am glad they are coming to a deal.

They tried to cut a % when they first made a deal with him. He thought games were stupid and wanted a 1 time cash payment. He did not expect the series to do so well on PC/consoles, and then tried to bitch about his own stupidity. They tried to do right by him, but he screwed himself over in the beginning.

"They offered me a percentage of their profits. I said, 'No, there will be no profit at all - give me all my money right now! The whole amount. It was stupid. I was stupid enough to leave everything in their hands because I didn't believe in their success. But who could foresee their success? I couldn't."

He's also a greedy ass-hat who demanded they give him a 1 time cash settlement because he didn't give a damn about video games and was sure they would fail in a year or 2 anyways. They wanted to give him a better deal but his own close minded nature and greed lead to him losing out on a lot of money in the end and he was very openly bitter about it.

THEY did the work, he provided the lore, and it's not like his book sales haven't exploded since the games came out.

They should send him a big f*ck off... now that the series is super popular he want's a cut tsc...

They offered him a percentage, he thought the games wouldn't succeed so he wanted cash instead. Idiot...

Well, I think Sapkowski has been unreasonable during all of this, but I'm glad that they are reaching an agreement if it means we will get more Witcher games in the future.

Awesome to hear. A good resolution that benefit both parties only lead to good things for gamers. Can’t wait to see what will come of this.
