Most of the veterans are gone, there are only old geezers left in the top positions, they had to dump their engine because there is no one left who knows how to operate it, so they are switching to Unreal.

The whole strategy now is to please investors (which includes all this ESG/DEI stuff). It all sounds like CDPR is over.

Only there is one problem with that statement - they have always been like that. From the very beginning. Each game they made was made in dev heck, with each game they lied and made up complete nonsense in interviews. They created themselves as a studio "for g*mers" that doesn't do bad practices, exploitative DLC or DRM, and yet during the release of The Witcher 2 they sent threatening letters to people who pirated the game.

The Witcher 3 had a huge drama related to the downgrade where the Reds lied looking straight into the camera, but they got away with it because the game turned out pretty good after all.

Not to mention the shit working conditions in the studio. Probably this is the worst company when it comes to gamedev in Poland. No one who has even a little experience or knowledge in the industry wants to work there. The smartest ones simply fled immediately after the release of The Witcher 3, because having this game on your resume back then opened a lot of gateways to better jobs.

Ever notice how few people noticed that cyberpunk was over 3 years delayed? The launch wasn't even a beta and they didn't push the final patch (which still was lacking promised features btw) until years later.

Not only are these narrative designers that will be responsible for everything non-gameplay (and influence the gameplay too), the "they're just adding tokes so it sells!" is nonsensical, plenty of people working on the games fully buy into this stuff.

Oh great, so we'll get more quests like the one in Cyberpunk where the bartender tells you "I'm a :marseytrain:. No cybernetics, though, those are unnatural. Also my husband is dead. I trust you with this personal information because you won a car race for me."

I don't have any hopes for their games being good anymore. Since I'm Polish this assessment is automatically correct.

But, I really recommend the video I linked in my other comment. Not only for the ESG talk itself, but how completely corporate it all is. They guy even blatantly states that they are doing it for the investors.

Passion for games in that studio is evaporating with every passing minute and is being replaced with bullshit.

I don't follow them so it very well could be the case, I just don't know. I trust your judgement as a friend, but it doesn't stop me from hoping that they can still make good games. Cyberpunk had a disastrous release, but it is just a single data point from which it is impossible to extrapolate a trend, and as such I am very curious which direction their next game will take. Given how it will likely be the Witcher 1 remake, which is something I hold very dear, I can only wish that it turns out well.

But I will admit that the video you linked is alarming.

:marseyshrug: Well, I won't say you have to go doomermode on this (yet), Phantom Liberty released last year and was well received and Cyberpunk as a whole is apparently good now, so who knows how it goes. I'm not a prophet.

The remake will be the sign of how things may unfold, nothing else to do than wait and see. Personally I have no interests in playing it though, the original Eurojank version is the only one I ever need.

One thing I can prophesize is that they are 100% removing the s*x cards.

We're expecting a major content update in 1-3 weeks and it always goes 50% off for those (around 4x/year + regular Steam sales). It's absolutely worth full price but saving 30 bucks is always a good idea so hold off I'd say.

I really don't get popularity of Rome 2, the worst of modern TW for me (discounting minor ones nobody played). It's missing so many of the fetch things of Rome/M2 like general speeches, it doesn't have the polish and gunpowder of S2 nor the faction diversity of Warhammer. And naval combat sucks every time TW tries to model it.

Liked Attila though, trying to survive as Rome is fun, as are the underappreciated aesthetics of Christian Rome.
