Their images are fine. Again, there’s a gargantuan disconnect between the hardcore gamers who populate message boards and the general public. We think we are more important than we actually are. Most people who bought Cyberpunk have no idea about all of this controversy. And plenty of others, myself included, know about it and don’t care, because the game has been great for us. And then there are still more who have such goodwill built up with CDPR, one blundered launch isn’t going to ruin it. 

One Blundered launch is the understatement of the millenia. This "one blundered launch" is equal to enough drama for a decade or 2 for many companies. CDPR will be fine financially but underselling the disaster that is Cyberpunk 2077 isn't the way to go. They are just another 3rd party company now so their image is damaged enough that it will take at least a decade to recover. They aren't in their own class anymore,

It’s not an understatement at all. Certainly not in comparison to the hyperbole going the other way. “Just another third party company now” and “at least a decade to recover”... nah. Again, we have plenty of evidence of other games that show otherwise. 

Sure, there will be a small patch of gamers unable to move on and continuing to hold a grudge. But it won’t matter, because most won’t give a shit about it.
