You say the same thing like me in b) with more words.See my above post.
RDR2 had over 3000 people in this project in 4-5 locations. CP2077 500-800? And although RDR2 wasn't perfect at release it wasn't that broken. It has something to do with time, planning, projectmanagment, qualified employees and - the correct priorities.EDIT: I will add that CDPR has already stated that throwing more bodies at the issues wouldn't have fixed the issues in time either. There is such a thing as having too many people working on the same thing and it only slows things down.
Witcher 3 had cameos too (most likely voice acting).For example: Would you imagine a Witcher-world where pewdiepie would show up as a mage to help Gerald ?
To me this is overall ridiculous idea to add some youtube/twitch people to a game. Sure point to pre-marketing, but is it really wise in long run?
Blatant marketing, that's why. If internet is right, they spent $200 mil. on promotion of the game. It's 2 times more than actual development budget. Looking at these numbers it makes sense they couldn't delay the game any further. Release it in any state while the hype is at it's highest.
I recognized a few internet celebrities, but I bet I missed a lot more.
It was HUGE here in America. Entire ads on Times Square in New York and whole bus ads, bus stop ads and so onI'm always curious when I see that marketing number come up.
Outside of YouTubers speculating - I didn't see any marketing beyond a magazine advertisement shortly before release.
At least here in Australia there didn't seem to be a lot - did anyone in other countries see a lot of marketing?
Ahh - I take it back then - Looks like a huge focus on North America then. That would have been costly AF.It was HUGE here in America. Entire ads on Times Square in New York and whole bus ads, bus stops ads and so on
So before the game even released, everybody who has asked to be in the game world told in they're platforms that they are gonna be in the game. Sure it will create even more buzz around the game, but do we really need this?
Still used up resources for literally no reason.This is a non-sensical argument.
The people modeling these faces in the game are not the same ones who could've fixed the AI or fixed any of the real issues the game has.
These influencer didn't cost enough to influence development either.
