Ooftah what a terrible moment cdpr are going through right now.

Neonridr1200d ago

what a terrible like 6 months..

excaliburps1200d ago

Indeed. No one would expect CD Projekt to be shat on like this. Come to think of it, given how awesome the Witcher 3 was and how DLC and all were handled properly, no one expected Cyberpunk to be this controversial.

Still, this isn't good or right. I mean, this is just outright crime being committed.

anyone that tries to use this to make money will be sued into the ground.

@excaliburps

Except The Witcher 3 was buggy and had a rocky launch too, but everyone forgets that.

seanpitt231200d ago

That’s a understatement... this company has gone from the highest of the highs to the lowest of the lows in record time.....

In the grand scheme of things six months is like a moment.

This will probably work out well for CDPR, there is no such thing as bad publicity, this will throw them in the limelight, and the source code stolen will not get sold, nor will it get much use before all those responsible for hacking are behind bars lol.

I do remember and I remember the fact they were diligently to fix everything and some of the DLC expansions were amazing and even the free content was amazing. But it's still did not launch in the state that cyberpunk 2077 launched in. as a CD project red fan it just bugs me that they saw the condition of the game why not just delayed for maybe six to nine months and launch it when it's really ready. Or how about just launch it on PC and see the console version versions are coming later.

Their image their reputation has been stained it will take something really special for them to recover from this and what's really really sad is they were one of the true pro consumer companies out there

Man, I’m starting to feel bad for these guys. I mean talk about being kicked into another gender.

uGLYmE1200d ago

Starting to? What did they do wrong? I don’t understand any amount of animosity towards this developer. Is there an article that can convince me otherwise?

Ninver1200d ago

They failed to provide what was promised. I think they deserve some remorse but other diehard gamers want them burnt to the ground. It's crazy out there.

Duke191200d ago

People got a shitty game. Now the developer needs to go under and all involved need to lose their jobs clearly.

Neonridr1200d ago

ever heard about a game called Cyberpunk 2077 that was hotly anticipated and turned into a giant mess?

CrimsonWing691200d ago (Edited 1200d ago )

Well, I mean, I didn’t feel sorry for them getting the feedback that they did for making the decisions that they did. I mean lying to consumers seems like something that would fit in the “they did wrong” category, but that could just be me.

That being said, I enjoyed Cyberpunk albeit with disappointment from being watchdogged.

Now, as in right now, because I just read they’ve been hacked, I am feeling sorry for them because on top of everything else they now have to deal with this and I feel like they’ve had enough i.e. why I mentioned the whole kick to the nuts comment.

Does that make sense? Let me know if you’re picking up what I’m putting down. I can break it down even further or possibly draw a schematic.

While they misled gamers with their marketing and should be called out for it, CyberPunk wasn’t nearly as bad as people are making it out to be.

If Bethesda had released this game before they finally fell to earth after Fallout 76, everyone would have shrugged their shoulders and waited for a few patches.

CDPR are literally victims of their own success here. Everyone wanted another Witcher 3 and they instead got a buggy Deus Ex. Thing is, Deus Ex isn’t half bad either.

They lied and said last Gen consoles ran great.

lelo2play1200d ago

They offered refund... move on already. It's getting tiresome.
Seriously! Get over it.

SullysCigar1200d ago

^ You're memory is somewhat skewed there, @lelo2play. They said contact Sony/MS - without any prior consultation with them, which was just more poor communication and decision making, further exacerbating the situation.

I'm not saying they deserve what's happening now, of course, but what they did was bad and they've yet to make good. Once they have, we can talk about 'moving on'.

AsunaYuukiTheFlash1200d ago

@lelo2play But still it didn't change the fact that they lied to their consumers.

CorndogBurglar1200d ago

And the crap they went through, and are still going through, is punishment for that.

Yes, they said it ran well on last gen consoles. Yes, they released a horribly buggy, unfinished game. And they are still paying for those mistakes. They've had a lawsuit filed against them. They had their game removed from PSN. They've had to deal with refunds. And they're working around the clock to try and fix it as best they can.

They're paying like any other developer should in this situation. Getting hacked and having company owned assets and codes stolen, held for ransom, and auctioned off is horrible and they don't deserve that.

It’s shitty what’s happening but this doesn’t excuse Cyberpunk

I hope this isn’t what’s gonna happen now, we all forgive them out of pity

Darkborn1200d ago

Exactly, death threats and hacking is not a good thing for anyone regardless of what they promised and didn't deliver. It was a scummy business move, but it doesn't deserve this kind of negativity. Boycott the game until its fixed and don't pre-order next time, sure. But not this.

DragonWarrior191200d ago

That's exactly what they want. You think this coincidentally happened after the gaming community lost all its respect for them?

MadLad1200d ago

So you're saying they're releasing their own insider documents, not mention source code, onto the internet for a little bit of pity points?

That's highly unlikely, to say the least.

CorndogBurglar1200d ago (Edited 1200d ago )

Dude, come on. There's no way CDPR had themselves hacked and their assets sold online.

medman1200d ago (Edited 1200d ago )

I always felt bad for the developers. I never once felt bad about some of the decision makers and higher ups within the organization. Too many of them are liars, unfortunately their lies and poor decision making has hurt the devs. Doesn't that always seem to be the case? People in a position of power screw up, the underlings take the brunt of the fallout.

Management should be held 100 percent to account for the entirety of this still unfolding calamity associated with Cyberpunk 2077. The fact that some of them have not been fired to date is not surprising at all....gutless incompetence rules the day.
