Polish Developer Addresses Fan Concerns
CD Projekt RED was a fairly large studio back during Witcher 3’s development. Lately, they’ve been silent on work for their next IP, Cyberpunk 2077, which has left fans to ponder the state of development. But the most recent information made available to fans was a series of Glassdoor reviews painting the company in a bad light.
If you aren’t already informed on Glassdoor, think of it as the Yelp of jobs. According to reviews from ex-employees, the workplace at CD Projekt RED is less than ideal. It is worth noting that just about anyone can leave a review on Glassdoor, but that doesn’t detract from the detailed grievances many left. Some were so scathing, in fact, it led fans to wonder whether or not the treatment of employees might be affecting the development of Cyberpunk 2077. However, the company has since responded.
According to the Warsaw-based studio, the opinions of ex-employees do not reflect the majority. Over time, CD Projekt RED has made a lot of hires, and over time, people have departed—some of them playing big roles. But those who stay successfully adopt their game-making philosophy, says the company. And they wrote, “One would need to be very courageous to base the future of an AAA role-playing game of such scope on one person (or a few people).”
In other words, fans have no need to worry about the state of Cyberpunk 2077, its progress, or the state of CD Projekt RED. You can find the full message from their tweet below.
