Cyberpunk 2077 is the greatest game CDPR has ever made. It means tens of millions of dollars invested and countless man hours – not to mention the engine optimizations, technical advances, and other behind-the-scenes improvements that keep the mechanics and physics of the FPS working properly. The game is almost ready and nearing its November 2019 release date, but that push has cost developers a lot of overtime.
A recent post on 4Chan claims that since May 2019, CDPR developers have been crunching “non-stop” and working 16-hour working weeks in a crude print known colloquially as the “death march”. The reports have now been confirmed by

CD Projekt RED’s games are not just games. They are multi-year blockbusters that are designed to increase game sales over a period of more than 5 years while accelerating goods and other content. This is why it takes so long to create the titles. They are specially designed for huge open-ended experiences that can be resold, re-released, and played for years. This type of structure also requires 5 to 7 year development cycles and a lot of crunch – an unfortunate side effect of an industry that relies on iteration, scrapping of existing content, and lots of rework.
Cyberpunk 2077 will be released on November 19, 2020 for PS4, Xbox One and PC. As you play, think about how many people left all those extra hours to make the project possible.
