"MY UNDERSTANDING OF CYBERPUNK 2077 RELEASE STATE DISLIKE"Agree with you as I didn't follow the hype either. People expect a perfectly functional game they paid for, which is logic of course, but don't exactly understand that games, once they're launched, can make a change of state, making it look it was released in a completely broken state.
Had a few crashes in the beginning, but after the game played perfectly fine since. Was just a bad series of circumstances the game launched the way it did.
I think it goes beyond that really.
Apparently, they started work on it before The Witcher 3 (8 years ago was when the first trailer hit) but to get that game ready they moved the entirety of the Cyberpunk 2077 team to work on TW3 to get it polished. Except the Cyberpunk 2077 release date never moved and they only stopped working on TW3 after Blood and Wine. Then suddenly they were like 3 years behind.
Given they got subsidiaries by the government, releasing in the state it is, is also kind of terrible.
