I get to do something cool later today, though mentioning it in advance is not really playing it cool.

No kidding. I complained about CIG's marketing rigging a community poll for best development studio of year on another gaming news site (seriously, Square Enix was ahead by a mile then CIG's marketing announced the poll on reddit and suddenly CIG had almost 700 more votes) and got attacked by the cultists. To call them immature and rude would be a gross understatement. I don't envy Derek for having to put up with the constant barrage of hate these rabid idiots have hurled at him since he started pointing out that CIG might not be on the up and up.

Don't feel sorry. He knew exactly what he was getting himself into when he took CIG to task and made demands. Besides if there ever a person who can handle it Derek would be that person.

Thats either a typo, or bullshit. You can't throw engineers at games to build them faster or better. After a while the law of diminishing, or even negative returns kicks in.

That was NOT a typo nor is it bullshit.

The point is they were able to deliver the game in 3.5 years only because they had so many people working on it.

What a terrible, terrible year for DICE. I almost feel bad for them, almost.

I don't. In 2005 the board of directors recommended DICE shareholders accept EA's offer to basically buy them via purchasing all outstanding shares. DICE knew precisely who EA is and what they do to their subsidiaries. They sold their souls to the "dEAvil" for profit.

If memory serves CDPR was actually working on Cyberpunk 77 and then placed the game on hold to work on Witcher 3. I think the truth is somewhere in the middle. CDPR got REDengine 3 to a production level and then splintered the development team into a Witcher 3 group and the CP77 group. Maybe this is why CDPR stated, during their annual investors' report, to have around 1,500 people working on Witcher 3. Most of them contractors. Probably the bulk of their core development team was working on Cyberpunk 77.

Again, what are you talking about? Broken Age was delivered. DF said they were going to make an adventure game and they did just that. It was 10-15 hours long, had a great art style, good writing and variable puzzle design. Spacebase DF-9 was released. It was an early access game (not a Kickstarter project) that was buggy and didn't have all of the features that people wanted or expected. It was then pushed out the door and abandoned because it wasn't generating enough revenue. Welcome to game development.

When it comes to crowdfunding, DF has had two projects: Broken Age and Massive Chalice. Both were delivered. They may not have been as good as people hoped but they were delivered.

Spacebase DF-9 wasn't released. It was abandoned even after raising 3.3 millions (more than the $400k they were asking for). Here are the features DF pitched. Most never made it in. What I'm saying is most crowdfunded games typically are never released with the features the company pitches. But in the case of SB DF-9 they released an unfinished games.

Answer: BFCM 50% discount...

This could've brought in a LOT of new players but no, EA's greed wouldn't have any of that. So now the entire SWBF player base is probably 1.8M. That's a sizable pool but no guarantee all 1.8M will buy anything.
