So you probably knew about this already but Cyberpunk 2077 unfortunately will not be making it to our homes in April but will instead be released later in the year on September 17th. A sad delay but for the product itself as long as it gets more time to be even better I’m not bothered.
What I am bothered about however is a statement made by the company shortly afterwards. Unfortunately it seems as though CD Projekt Red are embracing the awful practice of crunch upon their developers as everyone working on the game will have to spend many more hours than should be necessary working rather than actually living in order to see the game to completion. I have no doubts in my mind that this game will be great but I don’t want greatness to come at the expense of the personal lives of the people who helped make it. I feel as though more delays would be a better solution to this but I’m not an investor so I could see why that might not matter. It’s a terrible situation and I do hope that despite these conditions that people do end up not having that bad of a time and we end up with a game that is made with passion and love rather than resentment.
That’s all for now, and as always. It’s not just a game, It’s a Life.
