Why Cyberpunk 2077 Proves That Crunch Is *Never* a Solution

Choosing shareholders over employees is always going to backfire

Why was Cyberpunk 2077 released with so many bugs?

The truth is that CDPR is unjustifiable for what is happening. But so are the shareholders, investors and executives who were involved in this project until now.

So what changed?

I’m going to go ahead and say it: the reason Cyberpunk turned out this way is only and exclusively because of crunch.

Crunch is not, and should never be, a solution to fix bad planning.

Should we boycott CDPR?
