Cyberpunk 2077 — Our Commitment to Quality (An official statement from CD Projekt Red)

I'll still wait until I eventually get a PS5 to play this, but at least this sounded like an honest message openly admitting they fucked up.

I feel like he's not saying anything I didn't already know, but I appreciate the message all the same. I personally enjoyed the game enough to deal with the problems and got my platinum, but I know not everyone feels that way. And I don't think this will make those folks feel much better. Thanks for posting though.

Wow I didn't know that "El Rubio" from the Cayo Perico Heist DLC was a real person!

Anyways, I'm still doubtful if I should wait for the PS5 upgrade or just play it now. Is it really that bad? or that good? I only played the game for an hour.

Sure they released a broken messy game but no doubt Cd Projekt would make it right eventually. They did good with Wither3, they will do the same with 2077.

The real lesson to be learned here for CDPR and all gaming companies is in that graphic. I'm sure lot's of game companies have this kind of timeline charted somewhere in their organisation. So to any developers and studio execs reading this - when you are next in the office - take the box which says 'RELEASE' and just move it to the opposite end of the line. Do this with every game you release.

As for the video itself - Pretty astounding who they will get up in front of the camera to say sowwy after a $1 billion loss occurs for the founders. It's nice that there is an apology somewhere in there, but it's chucklesome how the script he is reading is trying to justify below GTA 4 standards of world AI and systems which are so fundamentally flawed, they will need more than a patch.

 

It's great that the script he was reading lead with a protective statement over his staff and pulling the blame solely onto the executive team. The most tragic part of this whole mess is that they pushed their staff through extended crunch for absolutely no gain whatsoever, so I hope that they are addressing that internally with their staff too.

 

Honestly though, the game is a literal pop culture level meme now. They are going to have to do alot of laundry to wash the stains out of these particular sheets.

I mean, anyone can say what he's saying and not necessarily mean it, not that I really care about the whole situation... but I appreciate the execs taking the heat (like they should) and giving their developers props for their efforts.  Hopefully that's the same message being delivered behind the scenes.

No one doubts that.

 

But the practice of releasing unfinished and broken games can't be tolerated.

 

 

problem is people just buy the unfinished shit regardless, and that teaches publishers what they can get away with,

Guy even says in the video "Although, believe me, we never ever intended for anything like this to happen"

 

Yeah, they're pretty convinced the consumer is stupid and would accept the game like that.

Except the seal didn't plunge itself onto the fist, and it wasn't coerced out of its money. Also, seals don't have money.

tbf knowing CDPR's history as I do, and buying all their games. they knew they pushed their engine too far, and they pushed a commitment too far, big names started investing heavily in their company, and again with the extra success of witcher 3 after the tv show on netflix.

 

the game was no doubt years away, basic animations are still missing. this pandemic gave em cash fever and they knew it was years away from finished, so they took a payday now preferably right at christmas.

 

they should have kept back the console version, because what they released was crap.

I'm willing to give any dev the benefit of the doubt when it comes to COVID, but everything else is inexcusable. CDPR knew that they were releasing a terrible quality product but also knew that their diehards would gobble it up and make apologies for them.

Watch it still get game of the year next year and have not a lot of people bring up a fuss like they did with the last of us 2. (Obviously both games have issues dev wise but we all know theres still a double standard for CPDR and other Companies maybe its smaller now but its still there)

Personally,  I have lost all good faith in CDPR. They'll continue to crunch their employees to meet those roadmap deadlines. 

 

After the dust settles, they should consider leaving ambitious titles to the big boys and go back to making Gwent.

Maybe if they had adhered to that "commitment to quality" in the first place they wouldn't be in this position today.
