Keanu tells you to "seize the day" (and buy Cyberpunk 2077)

Keanu tells you to

In the same interview, while he did not specifically promise not to subscribe to crunch time, Badowski said, "I think we can promise that it'll be better than "The Witcher's" finishing period".

Bloomberg The CD project will pay employees more for extra work in accordance with Red Polish labor laws. I want to believe long ago - that problem should never be the answer. The employee, who asked not to be named discussing private information, said some staff had already been putting in nights and weekends for more than a year.

The said email was reportedly written by studio head Adam Badowski telling employees they will have to report to work "one day of the weekend" on top of the "typical amount of work" they have. But we have increased all other possible means of navigating the situation. Some of you likely aren't on-board with the recent revelation that CD Projekt employees are subjected to "mandatory crunch" until the game ships. "Everyone is well compensated for every extra hour they put in". This is what is often referred to in the industry as a game "going gold".

In a Bloomberg article, Jason Schreier reports that past year the co-CEO Marcin Iwinski stated that the company would be "avoiding mandatory crunch and was "committed" to allowing employees to work without overtime".

This latest news of crunch occurring at CD Projekt Red is certainly disheartening.

Speaking to Kotaku again later in 2019, Iwinski doubled down on this, saying that even at the very end of development on Cyberpunk 2077, CD Projekt would commit to non-mandatory overtime "no matter what".

Cyberpunk 2077 has been delayed multiple times, having originally been scheduled to launch back in April and then September. Let us know in the comments! "And I actually would [like] for us to also be known for treating developers with respect".
