    The game recouped its costs with the preorders alone.

    The essential issue isn't whether it makes its money back or if it makes as much as some other title, it's exclusively whether it makes as much money as they told investors it would. I don't know where their last reported 13 million copies puts them on that score, did any sales projections find their way to the public prior to release?

    Bloomberg was reporting market analysts as estimating 30m sales over 12 months from release falling to estimates of 25.6m once the problems with old gen consoles became clear. Obviously that's not CDPR's own internals though.

    The more I read and hear about this game, the more it sounds to me like they just didn't have the know how to make this kind of open-world game and faked it all the way to the finish line expecting people wouldn't notice.

    Interesting, thanks. I guess I'd assume internal projections to be on the conservative side, but that's pure speculation on my part. I expect CDPR's priority will be to hop back into Sony's jockstrap by end of February at the very latest, and they may be able to course-correct through 2021.

    From a technical perspective, however, what I'd be most interested in is the impact that driving, as a feature, has had on these problems. I say this because the assumption that asset streaming is the biggest bottleneck on older hardware seems to be growing prevalent, and Cyberpunk combines a much more resource-heavy environment with a much faster mode of traversal compared to The Witcher 3. Back in Skyrim, I seem to remember that the lack of properly controllable dragons, something which even modders couldn't pull off, was linked to the engine's inability to load new cells fast enough to cope. And another detail, I decided to test drive the Mizutani Shion earlier today, and after half an hour of playing Carmageddon around Night City, I noticed my CPU was running hot again. I can't say for sure this was the cause, it was just a random observation, but since I haven't been able to consistently link it to anything else, like crowds or visual effects or even play time, it makes me wonder.

    CDPR's reputation is in the shitter right now. They went from most beloved to hated nearly as much as EA overnight.

    It's not about the sales, it's about their reputation.
    I'm not sure why that's so hard to understand. People bought this game on the back of Witcher 3's reputation. What do you think that will do to their next game?

    Depends. Will their next game be called The Witcher 4? If yes, they'll get that money.

    Wasn't this article made very shortly after the release? And before the announcement about refunding the game (after the issues with the game became apparent on all platforms)? If so, then that's not the full picture. Unless people really didn't feel like refunding.

    Kinda wish YongYea condenses his news instead of spamming, I kinda like what AngryJoe does, which he makes 2 vids every week where they cover most news and be done with it. Nowadays I just look at the headline for YongYea and move on.
