Allegedly she couldn't even pay the rent of her small two-room apartment with this earnings. Her husband had to pay for the rent. The apartment was not in the center of Warsaw at all. Therefore, she said about the statement by studio boss Adam Kiciński that the crunch in Cyberpunk 2077 (buy now € 58.19 ) It is not so bad that this comes from a person who owns 70 million dollars in shares in the company.
How much truthfulness there is in these statements, of course, cannot be said. However, in the current situation it does not cast a good light on CD Projekt Red.

The fact that more is being added and an ex-employee speaks of poor pay does not help to improve the image of the developer studio. The reactions to her statement are accordingly.
