Cyberpunk 2077 Crunch Follow-up

In this tweet CD PROJEKT RED studio head Adam Badowski responds to the report that the developer has gone back on their commitment to avoid putting their staff through crunch to complete Cyberpunk 2077:
These last 6 weeks are our final sprint on a project we've all spent much of our lives on. Something we care for deeply. The majority of the team understands that push, especially in light of the fact that we've just sent the game to cert and every day brings us visibly closer to shipping a game we want to be proud of. This is one of the hardest decisions I've had to make, but everyone is well compensated for every extra hour they put in. And, like in recent years, 10% of the annual profit our company generates in 2020 will be split directly among the team.

This is my shocked face.

Plus crunch for only a month AND get OT? Please, I've seen some studios, games end up in crunch that last 4+ months of development with no OT. Clearly the industry is much better then it was 5+ yrs ago. As long as they are getting paid for the OT this is a non-issue and story.

Wasn't it RDR2 that had like 6 months of crunch.

The workers can thank Sony for mandating an Xmas release.
This pretty much sums it up.

True, going back on their word stating they wouldn't do this makes them out to look like total D-bags ,....- but seriously, - the way the world has turned for the past 9 months or so , these workers are not exactly getting treated unfairly.
It seems like they have had it pretty good this entire time.
I think there's about 10 million people in the world right now who would love to be under this short bit of crunch requirement right now. ( Overtime pay & 10% of the company profit ) Wow , that's good stuff.
