Nobody, but nobody comes close to CDPR in game support--it's not even close, CDProjekt is so far ahead. As is well known, they support their games years into the future, and as a result those games continue to bring in nice revenue streams years after they originally ship.
Disagree mucho. As much as I dislike (or am indifferent about) Blizzard and Valve but their support is second to none. They both really release patches for games years (decades
even in some cases) after they came out.
CD Projekt offer decent support but have a relatively normal cycle. TW3 came out May 2015, received two full expansions and the last patch is now almost a year old (1.31 released in September 2016 and all focus is now on Cyberpunk apparently).
That's "only" about 15 months worth of support while many issues still remain (just check their forums).
There are many devs with similar support cycles like Larian Studios, inXile, Obshittian etc.
There is certainly nothing outstanding about CDP. They haven't touched the first Witcher or Witcher 2 in years either while there are quite a few other devs who bring their old games up to modern standards (like Titan Quest anniversary for example) or like Blizz and Valve release patches even for their ancient legacy stuff.
You're proof that CDP marketing is working as intended though. Release a half-finished game, fire off salvos of patches and hotfixes (to fix the patches) and make people believe that you are a developer God due to the sheer quantity of patch output.
