CDPR Getting Full Cyberpunk 2077 Bonuses Despite Reviews

A report on Bloomberg (may require registration or subscription) says that CD PROJEKT will give the development team for Cyberpunk 2077 their full bonuses, despite bugs and launch issues with the sci-fi RPG. The company was planning on basing bonuses on critical response to the game, but they are accepting responsibility for the rushed crunch that proceeded the game's launch, and will not be penalizing the team for how this affected reviews. Here's a bit:
Cyberpunk 2077, which came out Thursday, is one of the year’s biggest games and a monumental release for the Polish publisher, which only makes new titles every few years. The sci-fi role-playing game sold more than 8 million copies in pre-orders before launch and has been acclaimed for its mechanics and story, but slammed for the number of glitches and bugs. As of Friday, Cyberpunk 2077 had a 90 out of 100 on the review aggregation website Metacritic -- a strong score that has nonetheless disappointed shareholders. If that score dips below 90, it may no longer meet the threshold that CD Projekt had originally set for bonus payouts.

“We initially had a bonus system that was focused on the game’s ratings and the release date, but after consideration, we believe that measure is simply not fair under the circumstances,” wrote Adam Badowski, studio head and creative director for Cyberpunk 2077, in the email to staff. “We underestimated the lengths and complexity involved to make this a reality, and still you did everything you could to deliver an ambitious, special game.”

Oh please, the company that said it would never stoop to crunching, did it anyway and laid a huge steaming unfinished turd for holiday season sales figures, and now wants to congratulate itself for extending that crunch until the game is actually in the state it should have been for release by keeping a promise they made to the poor crunchies in the trenches.

Call me when CDPR gets back to being any where near as impeccable it was when it released Witcher III.
