IGN's Tom Marks spoke with Cyberpunk 2020 creator Mike Pondsmith at E3, who told him that CD Projekt Red definitely wasn’t the first video game company to try and license Cyberpunk from him.
Good choice. CD Projekt RED are one of the most talented studios in the industry and perfect for this kind of game.
At least cd project Red treats their games with love and care, they treat their buyers well too (all that free Witcher 3 dlc).
The creator could've taken the first offer that came his way to make some money. Instead, he waited for a developer he trusted to do the license justice, because he cares about the quality of the final product. That kind of attitude should be praised as it shows a level of integrity. In an age where many gamers are willing to waive any and all business practices regardless of the end result because "people gotta make as much money as possible no matter what" it's about time we gave some respect for those who respect US.
The only right choice.
Imma need a list of devs they denied
Cant turn down god himself
What do you mean? You can pm me if necessary.
Thank goodness it wasn't EA or Activision Blizzard or Microsoft or Sony or Capcom or Sega or Nintendo or Bandai or Ubisoft or any of the other few hundred publishers, cuz we all know that they'll screw the pooch on this one. At least this game is in good hands.
If only the Star Wars license was held to as high a standard.....
