CD Projekt Red are at it again: After they were under serious scrutiny for inhumane working conditions in 2019, they now sent emails to their employees, telling them that they will be working 6-day weeks soon. This comes as a result of Cyberpunk 2077 hitting crunch - the game is nearing its release and now is the time to fix the last bugs and small errors. Studio head Adam Badowski sent the following email to employees:

"I take it upon myself to receive the full backlash for the decision. I know this is in direct opposition to what we’ve said about crunch. It’s also in direct opposition to what I personally grew to believe a while back — that crunch should never be the answer. But we’ve extended all other possible means of navigating the situation."

While it is nice of him to acknowledge that they are breaking a promise they made, the troubling part is that an anonymous employee has come forward saying that CDPR employees had already been working nights and weekends all year.

Troubling, troubling… The question is: Are we gamers maybe the ones to blame, with our impatience and high expectations?

While we are still very much excited for Cyberpunk 2077, we hope that the company will progress to more humane working conditions soon.
