Nah, I have zero intention to defend CDRP. I don't even like their games very much.
I do believe a strong message was delivered to the industry. But I didn't say that the industry was forever changed by that.
Their stock price was overvalued to begin with honestly, it got driven up by overhype for Cyberpunk, hype they were never going to be able to deliver on. Somehow their market cap was higher than Ubisoft, an entire publisher with 18,000 employees and about a dozen big IP's, compared to CD Projekt having 1,111 employees and no owned IP (both Witcher and Cyberpunk are licensed from their creators). Can't say I'm surprised by their stock price dropping some after the controversy. Will go back up some soon thanks to the high sales and the updates that fix the game next year and optimize it for next-gen. They also have the multiplayer Cyberpunk game coming which is sure to be a big success.Last edited by shikamaru317 - on 14 December 2020
