It did not take long for someone at CD Projekt Red to respond to Chinese Room`s “sexist” remark on twitter. Pawel Swierczynski, lead developer Wild Hunt, came forward and responded on NeoGaf.

According to Pawel Swierczynski:

CD Projekt RED, company of 370 employees, a lot from around the world, many women (brilliant and talented) but also minorities: gay, transsexual (we might have been one of the few companies who had transsexual lead), all treated equally with only respect and support.

But we`re called sexist for showing a boob or panties. Really?

We always aimed to tell stories about people. And there are people with boobs and people with panties. Sometimes both.

Pawel Swierczynski further said that these statement by no means represent CD Projekt Red, he said these are his personal opinion not of his employer`s.

This is not the first time that developer Chinese Room has accused a development studio of Sexism. Chinese Room`s Creative Director, Dan Pinchbeck, recently wrote an article that compared depiction of Quiet in Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain to Nazi Popaganda.

Dan Pinchbeck said:

Let’s transform Quiet (or that quite extraordinary opening shot down the front of a nurse’s dress, just before she gets strangled by another woman who then gets set on fire) into a non-white character – I’m sure you can come up with a racist stereotype to drop in there. And what if the villain was, say, a hook-nosed Jewish banker who eats babies, in the spirit of old Nazi propaganda? Hell, what if NPCs just shouted out racial slurs occasionally? Still a game of the year contender?

What do you think of Chinese Room`s Sexist remark? Let us know in the comments.
