CDPR has received a lot of backlash for the mandatory crunch

While this is all great news for the game, CDPR has been on the receiving end of some serious backlash recently. The developer had recently announced a company-wide crunch to meet the November 19 deadline. This eventually caught media attention as fans called to delay the game. This was because they didn’t want the game to be released at the cost of the developers working overtime.

CDPR responded to this where they tried to justify the crunch by saying that the employees would be fairly compensated for the same. Nevertheless, this led to an industry-wide debate where people had divided opinions about ‘crunch’ culture.

In any case, one thing is for certain- Cyberpunk 2077 is definitely going to be one of the best games of all time. The detailing in its open world, script, characters, etc. is immaculate, which makes it all the more exciting. No wonder it won the ‘Best RPG Game of the Year’ at Gamescom 2020. Come November, fans will finally be able to live the life in Night City.
