Of course it's all lies according to some, but I can't imagine the developers being happy with management
Many industry observers have wondered why Cyberpunk 2077, which was first announced in 2012 and was delayed three times in 2020, still appears to be unfinished. Several current and former staff who worked on Cyberpunk 2077 have all said the same thing: The game’s deadlines, set by the board of directors, were always unrealistic. It was clear to many of the developers that they needed more time.
I wonder how this will play out. There's nothing holding the really talented people back from switching to a different studio. It happened after TW3, those with options will seek a better work environment. It's a shame, driving both your customers and talent away for short term gain. Very short term in this case.
In a real and just world, those board of directors should all be fired, with no severance packages, and a bad rep to their resume, because holy shit was this a colossal fuckup of epic proportions. A lot of money and nearly a decade sunk into this, and most of it fucked up because a few rich snobs, completely out of touch with their own dev team, decided to just cut corners with a multi million dollar project, and rush it out the door, expecting nothing bad to happen.
Like I've gotta ask myself, why are people so god damn fucking stupid, like this level of studio, where they think it's okay to cut corners with an already expensive project, and expect nothing bad to ever come of cutting said corners and hiding release footage until consumers get the product in their hands.
Companies need a new law, a psyche test for what is okay vs what actually, realistically and objectively isn't okay, no matter how sound one thinks the plan is.
I'm ngl, I very much have a seething level of hate for shareholders, but with how this has been progressing, I'm starting to hate certain publisher managers, let alone CEO's, but I actually do want the BoD at CDPR utterly fired and kicked out, for how much of a mess this is turning out to be. Like fire them asap, get them the fuck out of their offices and tell them to fuck right on.
Step right up come on in, feel the buzz in your veins, I'm like an chemical electrical right into your brain and I'm the one who killed the Radio, soon you'll all see
So pay up motherfuckers you belong to "V"
