Employed personnel working with CD Project Red have received an unwarranted request. The development studio has asked their designers & overall workforce to comply with a six-day workweek, with the reason being Cyberpunk 2077s deadline of November 19th. The avoidance of in-game glitches & crashes must be avoided to ensure profits, prompting an immediate request for 30+ days of overtime. This request comes after CD Project Red promised their workforce regularly that a six-day workweek wouldn’t be implemented under Cyberpunks final development phase. That was an obvious ploy to keep working morale high.
Marcin Iwinski, the Co-Founder of CD Project Red, had stated on two different occasions that employed personnel wouldn’t work overtime when the final phase of development began. Marcin evoked in 2019 that humane & respectable environments for their workforce are most important. However, the Co-Founder has seemingly changed his mindset & now holds loyalty to the numerous investors demanding millions in profit from CD Project Red.
The request made by CD Project Red explicitly states that employed personal are permitted to deny overtime & won’t receive an associated punishment for their denial. CD Project Red refusing to abide by this promise could result in a class-action lawsuit, which would see millions awarded to swindled developers. The request itself is named the “Non-Obligatory Crunch Policy – Cyberpunk 2077”.
The Lies Begin
It should be clarified that January 2020 saw Marcin Iwinski begin changing his mentality. Months after making promises to his working, sentiments were altered to state crunch times will be limited in the final stage of development. This means that workforces at CD Project Red has ample time to evaluate their home lives, and account for the non-obligatory overtime. It’s known that most who have sustained development of Cyberpunk 2077 has committed to the overtime. Ultimately, this is a project that they’ve spent years on & hold sentimental value. Completion for November 19th is essential for all employed personnel at CD Project Red.
Those wanting to experience Cyberpunk 2077 have to wait until November 19th when it’s released for the Xbox One, PS4, and PC. It’ll cost $90.00 to $120.00 for this game, with its price tag dependant on which edition is selected.
