The CD Projekt Red team has had a turbulent week. Not only did the release of Cyberpunk 2077 have to be postponed, those responsible have also caused numerous discussions in the last few days with some statements. The focus was mainly on CEO Adam Kiciński, who downplayed the crunch in the studio. The additional working hours for employees are not as heavy as reported in the media. Because this statement has now generated a lot of negative feedback, the head of CD Projekt Red has now apologized with a letter to his team. Bloomberg News also received this email.
"I didn't want to comment on the crunch, but I did – and I did it in a humiliating and hurtful way. To be honest, it's only now – after all the stress of the postponement and the conference itself – that I can get the best of it Understand the scope of my words. I have nothing to say in my defense. What I said wasn't even unhappy, it was just bad. So I ask you to accept my sincere and honest apology. "
