Don't forget that they're likely 'lying but telling the truth' here. In that I'm pretty sure:
1) yes the bonuses are coming
2) its no where near what was actually promised, which probably wasnt even publicly known anyway
Functionally its a way to tell the truth, but be lying. I guarantee whatever 'bonus' structure they had allocated, and yes you do have to allocate these bonuses as part of your budgeting, were already obliterated by the 6 day work week increase and all the other nonsense they've done. Meaning that they're all probably getting some utter pittance of a 'bonus'.
Oh remember that crunch? Yeah its still going. Do you think anyone on the core engine team is even allowed to go home with all the face melting bugs across 6 platforms? They're gonna be working on bugs, console certification, etc until 2021.
"Hey so like you know how our utter failure in project management over 6 years caused you to crunch for years, enforce fake 6 day work weeks we were already making you doing, and also hey you gotta work through Christmas and New Years because of all the bugs and stuff? Here's like $100 gift card 'bonus'.
