CD Projekt – the publisher behind CD Projekt Red studio, developer of The Witcher games and of course Cyberpunk 2077 – has seen its share value fall by more than 75 percent.
Therefore Business Insider Polandhe says Cyberpunk 2077’s disastrous launch wiped the value of Europe’s then most valuable games company from 40 billion Polish złoty (about £7.11 billion) to below zł10 billion – about £1.77 billion. bn.
The decline in the value of CD Projekt – still one of Poland’s most valuable companies – brings it back to the value last seen in 2017.
This means Dying Light developer Techland, based in Poland and thought to be worth around 10.6 billion Polish złoty (£1.88 billion), is now worth more and continues to increase in value (thanks, PC Gamer) thanks to the release of Dying Light 2: Stay Human.
ICYMI, Quantic Lab, which provides quality assurance (QA) support, responded to the lawsuit. Cyberpunk 2077 developer has misled CD Projekt Red about its work on the game.
In a 14-minute YouTube video by a channel called Upper Echelon Gamers, QA claimed that the studio deployed junior members of its team on the project instead of seasoned veterans, and noted many minor bugs. As claimed in the video, these issues affected Quantic Lab’s performance and therefore the game as a whole.
“Each project we carry out is unique in terms of project requirements. The direction of the project is agreed and adjusted with our clients according to real-time requirements,” Stefan Seicarescu, head of Quantic Laboratory, said in response. “Quantic Lab always strives to work with our industry partners with transparency and integrity.”
