Wow what happened here

I can only think of 2 outcome

1. Either the game already finished ( or at least her part is already done) and she moves on to another project

Or

2. Theres been abit of turbulance/disagreement inside the insomniac team that forced her to leave

Insomniac have multiple narrative and art leads on their games.

Didn’t Spiderman 2 have 12 narrative writers?

1 - Former videogames journalist writing for Kotaku and Salon: Check

2 - Blue hair with feminist badass side-shave: Check

3 - Says videogame writers need to pull every lever to push more LGBTQ content into games: Check.




My question isn't why she left Insomniac. It's why the fuck is CDPR hiring a seemingly toxic person.
Is she even ticking any diversity box to help on ESG scores, i.e. does she identify as a llama or some crap?

I can already see where this thread is going. But I mean I'd assume the script has been completed long ago. Either way nothing of importance was really lost here.

The Art Director from Wolverine who also left said he's moving to Project Orion(CP2077 Sequel) and while she hasn't said which team she's joined, it's incredibly likely that this is the project she's joining as well.
It's the newest project that's just beginning its conceptual/pre production phase and the studio helming the project is in Boston(with support from Vancouver/Warsaw) which means that any US employees don't have to move country.

It's not too surprising of a hire tbh on a creative level as well.
She's just worked on Spider-Man game and Wolverine those were urban environment with Miles being pretty diverse.
This is what CP2077 is as a setting.

And if you look at the themes of Cyberpunk...
They would probably be pretty stoked to write in that universe, I'm sure they had pretty banging interview(s).

The Punk suffix says it all really, its about rebellion at the political and societal level.
I mean, one of the main theme is about class disparity/warfare due to absolute rampant capitalism with giant megacorps running everything. Add a bit of climate change discourse, transhumanism, and other type of intersectional class dialogue in there, etc... And yeah you've got the type of setting that's going to attract exactly that type of writer.

Not a big deal, he was writing for Wolverine, it's not like he was lead writer for some original blockbuster IP like TLOU or some shit.

Its not the main guy Walt Williams ( Spec ops ), which is the important thing.
And pretty sure at this point in the game most the writing, story is done.

Also from the sounds of things, its good shes gone

He's a old man in his 60s, whose whole personality, is saying that women are not hot enough in games, and that minorities are too abundant. He is filth and doesn't deserve a platform.

DEI/ Sweet Baby Inc/Hit Detection hate parade is not something I'd invest my time into, that rabbit hole will have you discontent with every form of media imaginable, no matter how small the issue is. The only thing he is "exposing" is how hateful a particular crowd is. This is coming from someone who thinks identity pandering is some of the lamest shit of modern ages, but I don't let it cloud my enjoyment of every little thing.
