That is the old version of the graph with errors, here is updated version.

It took me an embarassingly long time to see what you did there. :oops:

Even CD Projekt wants some of them board game Kickstarter bux:



Cyberpunk 2077: Gangs of Night City - The Board Game, created in cooperation with @CMON has officially launched on Kickstarter!

It mixes territory control with evolving, branching storylines that will guide you through the tumultuous streets of Night City. Check it out: https://cmon.co/cyberpunk



God dammit multiplayer looks sick!

pre-production already as of 2012.
Yeah and pre-production can mean that 5 guys met every once in a while to brain-storm ideas or hack together some prototypes. The actual production cycle, when most of the studio is behind the project and is actually creating the final game, was much shorter. Much too short, as evidenced by the clearly unfinished product.

According to this article by 2013 50 people were working on CP in pre production, between release of W3 expansions that dev team started to grow and after Blood and Wine in 2016 production started with full power.

except they were working on the fucking thing for 10 years.
That's highly unlikely.

They announced the game was in pre-production already as of 2012.
Their first teaser trailer was dropped early 2013, before Witcher 3 even released.

The game "came out" End of year 2020.. (Dec 10)
The game was / is being patched still.. it's 2022.. You aren't getting your first (and likely only.. :lol: ) DLC until after 2023.


You can squabble over 9 years vs 10.. Regardless.. this game has been a black hole of development for over a decade at this point.
Anything else is pure Euro-potato cope.
That "teaser trailer" from the beginning of 2013 consisted simply of concept art with little resemblance to the aesthetics of the completed Cyberpunk 2077. The announcement of "pre-production" in 2012 simply meant that CDPR had acquired the license for Cyberpunk 2013/2020 with the intent of eventually developing a game; they were probably engaged only in the creation of said concept art and probably some high-level game design and environmental planning for Night City. It wasn't until the release of The Witcher 3 in 2015 that production on Cyberpunk 2077 began in earnest; they probably intended a similar four-year development timeline as The Witcher 3, but difficulties resulted in it first being pushed back from 2019 to 2020, then repeatedly delayed within 2020, and finally released near the end of the year despite the many glaring bugs and deficiencies.

if only they had more time, we would've gotten a great rpg! and they definitely wouldn't have just cut it up more to make it run better on consoles or anything

I love how you started so confident then started throwing in words like "they were probably " - after realizing this is all just you head larping and pulling assumptions out of your ass.

Pre-Production is pre-production, do they have developers / artists going full tilt on the game? I doubt game developers moved off Witcher in any capacity, but other segments could and I think some of their developers who did primarily engine development did move over early to start POCing content. I don't remember where I heard Marcin say that though - so you can call bullshit if you want.

TL;DR - Writing, Preliminary design, early POCing, engine work - that's still development on the game.

Now..! maybe you could make an argument that since CDPR is made up of a bunch of polish hacks in middle management positions that really got there through potato-nepotism, who then force everyone to redesign the game 14 times a month up until half their senior developers quit - that pre-production work just "doesn't count"! (since it all ends up as throw-away :lol:)

But I disagree, I still call that development of the game. Sorry Duke of Copeville.

Your so mad that I retardo'd your post. :lol:

It very much isn't to Cuckdexers.
Some of us called the transfer of resources from the trainwreck of Cyberpunk 2077 to a fourth game in the Witcher setting well before CDPR's announcements made it clear:

If CDPR leadership had any sense, they would have started development on such an Elder Scrolls-like Witcher IV as soon as the trainwreck of Cyberpunk 2077 was made available to the public, intending to pre-empt The Elder Scrolls VI, which is still entirely possible. :M
In before the revelation that the reason for no DLC and slow progress in patching is that CDPR surreptitiously shifted most of their personnel to development of an Open World RPG in the Witcher setting that will release in 2024 well before Bethesda completes the Elder Scrolls VI. :M

Granted, there seems to be a subset of Codexers coping by clinging to the absurd notion that CDPR plans out their games a decade in advance. :M

I have a post on this subject (when did CP77 properly start production?) somewhere way back in this thread
I said it was sometime by mid 2017 and I'll stick by it - specially given that all the shit that as come to light since then, like the "El Bugado" video
Before that they were making the engine and before that its pre-production most likely consisted of a handful of poles, scatching their balls and throwing "ideas" around just so management could leave then alone

For some the feeling of wasted potential mixed with a tiny light of hope that there is a chance of improvement works like a drug. Some mediocre games can hold fans with this for years.
Others just want to sail the Panam's canal

Then why are people still talking about this garbage?

You keep asking this question. It's because there's nothing like it in terms of a fully-realized cyberpunk atmosphere, and with mods it can be made reasonably okay. The big flaws can't be fixed, but things like level scaling and the junk MMO loot system and the broken build system can, so you can still have fun with it - and modders keep plugging away at it, again, because of the fact that there's nothing out there like it. If you want to soak in a cyberpunk vibe in a fully realized 3-d world with modern graphics, it's still the only and best option.

In a way I guess it's more like a wistful nostalgia for what could have been - plus the occasional heads-up about mods.

Cuz it ain't garbage. Garbage is what my diet looks like. Cyberpunk is an artifact of ambition. A tiny glimpse of what could have been. A feeling. Just go visit the nearest Konzentrationslager and maybe you'll understand what I mean.

Reminder that Mike Pondsmith is a massive weeb and he made Teenagers from Outer Space by binging the works of Rumiko Takahashi (the Ranma and Inuyasha lady), then turned it into an RPG.
Reminder that Mike Pondsmith kept shilling this trash game and never had even one issue with it.

Correction - he never SAID that had even one issue with it. Which shouldn't be surprising. George R.R. Martin didn't trash GoT when he had plenty of reasons to. Sapkowski didn't trash Netflix Witcher "adaptation". Does anyone have examples of authors trashing adaptations of their work when they were released (not decades after)?

Probably because he didn't get enough money from it. And wasn't involved in production. And doesn't like video games. And usually he says openly what he thinks (and still didn't trash Netflix Witcher).
