Must read


CD Projekt Red developers who worked on Cyberpunk 2077 reportedly confronted the management team over issues such as the crisis and the game’s difficult launch. Bloomberg, “frustrated and angry staff” asked CD Projekt Red management during a recent internal video conference and asked about unrealistic deadlines, the obligatory crunch, and much more.

This meeting took place ahead of Sony’s announcement that it would not only offer refunds to those unhappy with Cyberpunk 2077’s performance, but that it would also remove the game from the PS Store indefinitely.When asked about the tightening, the directors said they plan to improve production practices, but did not give details on what steps they will take to achieve it.

CD Projekt Red’s comments in January 2020 that Cyberpunk 2077 was “complete and playable”, despite the delay of the game. The council replied that “it would take responsibility”.

Another developer asked whether the directors of CDPR “found it hypocritical to play a game on the exploitation of companies by expecting their employees to work overtime. The answer was vague and uninspiring.”While Cyberpunk 2077’s early PC reviews were overly positive, the story quickly changed when the console versions were tested, specifically on PS4 and Xbox One base units.

Following this messy message around the launch of Cyberpunk 2077, CD Projekt Red, Sony, and Microsoft all of them decided to offer refunds to those who were upset with the game’s performance.
