The studio has hired CD Projekt Red's Lead Cinematic Artist, Pawel Swierczynski and Quest Designer Dennis Zoetebier, just a few months ago. But news has broken that Guerrilla Games has also scooped away another staff member from The Witcher 3 developer, with Senior Technical Designer Shadi Dadenji, this month. Dadenji worked closely on many of the systems within The Witcher 3, including:

  • Designed and implemented various gameplay systems
  • Supported quest and open-world designers with scripts and tools
  • Took ownership of certain editor features and enhanced their usability
  • Provided debugging support for a wide range of AI and UI issues
  • Liaised between engineers and designers to ensure optimal communication

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Anthony Garreffa

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
