CD Projekt RED Developers Question Leadership Over Cyberpunk 2077’s Disastrous Launch, Provide Update on Refunds
CD Projekt RED Developers Question Leadership Over Cyberpunk 2077’s Disastrous Launch, Provide Update on Refunds.
We found out that in the newest report from Bloomberg, Cyberpunk 2077 devs at CD Projekt RED had posed fairly candid questions to the leadership over the game’s state when it was released.
According to Bloomberg’s report, the interview happened before Sony recently announced their decision to handle refunds and pull the game from their digital store. Also just recently, CDPR had only recently come out and have provided yet another update on their repayments, offering to pay out of their pocket,
“…At the same time, we’d like you to know that our intention is for every physical copy owner, or a digital copy bought at retail, who has valid proof of purchase (and sends us an email at [email protected] within the time window) to receive a refund. We will do this out of our pocket if necessary…”
Their time limit was on December 21, according to their update. During an internal call, one employee asked leadership why they had announced the game in January that was “complete and playable,” which was not the case.
But still, another developer had also asked the directors if they felt it was,
“hypocritical to make a game about corporate exploitation while expecting that their employees work overtime.”
Report of crunch over at CD Projekt RED are well known with the Studio at some point, even announcing it themselves before launch. The saga of Cyberpunk 2077 will, for sure, continue with no end in sight.
