It was hard to believe but Cyberpunk 2077 did it! The shipwreck of the beginnings moved away for a present and a more radiant future with a game which takes again colors.
An emotional developer reflects on the Cyberpunk 2077 fiasco
Paweł Sasko, head of quests for Cyberpunk 2077, recently held a live Twitch during which he did not hide his emotion to see the game go up the slope. He admits to having been completely lost, not knowing what to say or how to react to the situation. A case that, in his words, totally destroyed him. It was also a difficult time for his loved ones.
I was sitting there listening to the questions and thinking to myself “What am I supposed to say”. It’s hard to put into words, when you put so much heart and work into something. And you know, for some of us, sometimes it’s been six, seven, eight years, especially for those who started at the very beginning. So to witness this moment when people love what we’ve done, it’s really kind of unreal. That people end up liking it.
After the game was released, I couldn’t believe it. After a while I believed it but at first I couldn’t believe it. And I remember my girlfriend, she saw me totally devastated. But it’s good to be back. It’s f****n good to be back. It really broke my heart.

If the developers have a responsibility, all the problems are mainly due to a too hasty exit pushed by the shareholders and the bad decisions of the management. Today, Cyberpunk 2077 rises from its ashes thanks to Netflix, a resounding return that allows it to do better than The Witcher 3.
