    They already have recouped their losses from development. They have your money and don't give a fuck about anything else.

    Not necessarily true, but not to far from it either.

    I'm assuming they value their own reputation if nothing else, thus why they are invested on trying to fix the damn thing instead of going down the Anthem road...

    Pretty much this. Reputation got them this far, so I assume they are going for a Redemption arc. I'm 50/50 on if they will manage it in the end.

    You can try to fix the gameplay but you can't really fix the story being so on rails and separated from the main gameplay loop.

    my main gripe is the gigs, loot and perk system. so basically like 70% of the game which i doubt can be fixed either by modders or official patches. marcin himself don't and obviously won't admit the core system of the game is borked so hard. it's the second worst loot i have ever played in RPGs maybe second to divinity original sin 2 (DO:S is worse especially because it's turn based, doesn't work at all with the diablo loot system. fuck swen)

    CDPR said many times that they made CP2077 with their own funds, returned those investments and made money on their own without investors. I think they secretly glad that the stock falls because they currently don't need investors' money, yet fever zloty per stock means lower dividends.

    More proof of 2020's backwards technology:


    AMD 2013s tech demo had: silverhand:lol:, NoTAA/DLSS, prominent contact shadow coolness etc.etc.

    Also no obsessed/ridden , back-alley "fans" like Justicar so obviously remorseful after shelling out for backwards tech.

    Even less than TW3, although the ending choices are expanded upon (in terms of unique content rather than number).

    They didn't pay out dividends for 2 years and it doesn't really work that way - they can cut even when the stock would rise (like disney did)

    tech demos are for showing off what engines can "possibly do...someday" unreal is great at showing off what their engines can do, but in practice you never see that stuff in the actual games

    Ubisoft has 18 times more employees and yet has only 2 times CDP's current market cap.
    CDP stock was insanely overvalued prior to Cyberpunk's launch due to the all shattering hype, and is still heavily overvalued even now.
    If anything, CDP's stock should go down even further.

    The company itself is financially fine though. They have around 450 million USD in a bank and zero debt. As such they can stay in business for the next 8 years even without selling a single copy of anything.

    Of course, nextgen Witcher 3 and Cyberpunk plus its expansions are going to keep selling gangbusters.

    It's CryEngine on the demo, though. And it looks like shit compared to actually released Crysis 2, 3 and Kingdom Come.

    they are definitely overvalued, how can a game developer with not a single good gameplay designer be worth this much? poland seems to have lots of talented artists: cyberpunk, ruiner, those bloober team horror games have all top notch art direction but when it comes to creating a satisfying gameplay loop they all fail.

    Ha, just watching the 2017 Ghost in the Shell (the one with Scarjo), and it struck me that CDPR must have had a huge burst of inspiration for the visuals from this movie, because the general tone and tenor of the graphics are closer to this than any other game or cyberpunky thing I can think of - especially the neon lit night thing, and the balance of grime and glitter.

    Quite lush visuals, but such a slow-paced movie. Feels like the sort of first movie you'd make if you'd gotten famous from doing cool visuals for ravers at Glasto. It's barely worth watching even if you're just in it for the visuals and fx.

    But yeah, the art design - the general aesthetic for the game must surely have been laid down on the basis of using this movie as a major reference point.

    Their brand is irreparably damaged. CDPR went from beloved to shit listed overnight.
    How impressive are cyberpunk's sales if they're directly responsible for damaging the sales of any game CDPR makes going forward?

    C'mon now, companies get away with a hell of a lot more than just releasing an unfinished mess nowadays. Do you really think this is what will define the decline in sales for them?
