CD Projekt stock has dropped over 75% since Cyberpunk 2077 botched release. Their Market Cap has dropped from over 40 billion Polish złoty to less than 10 billion Polish złoty. They were the most valuable games company in Europe but no more.


They hardly make any money from GOG so it makes me wonder about their financial future. Maybe the new Witcher game in development will give them a boost up if they do it right.

Coming from the Witcher series, I had and still have no desire to play CP 2077 at all.

Hopefully they don't waste any more resources on this and go back to the Witcher series.

CP2077 was the first and last game I've ever preordered.

It's also made me hesitant to buy new games in general.

I will not pay full price for new games either, especially since the industry wants to make $70 the norm.

Thanks, CDPR. At least GOG is still a great place to get games...

Yeah CDPR's mismanagement with CP2077 revealed there is no honesty in the AAA gaming industry, every publisher is just as greedy as the other LOL.

I'm also happy that I've managed to keep my hype well under control after CP2077

I definitely jumped on the hype train for CP2077, and before that, it was Fallout 4. Not anymore.

The only game I have any semblance of hype for is Dragon's Dogma 2, and I'll definitely wait and see how that game turns out (here's hoping for a release in early-to-mid 2023). Other games like Starfield haven't piqued my interest, and while games like Saints Row have, I still have no interest in buying the game until well after the Steam release when it's on sale.

Its not just the money, a lot of staff have also left.


They really over hyped and under delivered so badly with Cyberpunk. Their reputation as a developer for making great games absolutely destroyed by their own doing. I still miss having no co-op in the game. That's one of the features I was most looking forward to

I know they are still fixing the game up and they worked so hard on it but it's so dead in the water. It's like the most recent battlefield game. Nobody really cares about it anymore.

Paying with my debit card through the "PayPal Guest" feature has worked more often, but the same error has appeared sometimes. I've found messages from other people who have had the same problem. Steam accepted their money but GOG didn't.

Because of my negative experiences, I won't try to buy from GOG ever again. I know Steam's payment system will work every time.

Was pleasantly surprised by that one. Needs more seasons!

Im also surprised the stock got hit so hard. Wow. Thats a lesson in humility, right there. Well deserved, but I hope they can recover lost glory.

In any regular business there is a known principle, if I tell you, you'll get 3 nice things tomorrow and I deliver 2, you're likely disappointed, but if I tell you you would get 1 nice thing and I deliver 2, you'll be overjoyed.

CDPR didn't quite get that memo it seems. Its so, so strange... the only way that happens is when project leads have too much arrogance, and think they rule the world because everything they touch turns into gold anyway. I've done my share of dev work... and I've learned that the dreamt-of 'happy flow' never exists, there is always an obstacle. That's where crunch time and agile essentially comes from; you plan happy flow... and then work happens.

To overpromise with that base knowledge is so so stupid. I can't get my head around it at all. ESPECIALLY because The Witcher projects, like all 3 of them, all met the same obstacles in development too, its like they refused to learn.

Thanks, CDPR. At least GOG is still a great place to get games...

NES games back in the day - from the late 80s on - some of them retailed for $70-75. Most were closer to the $50 price. $70+ games are not a new thing.

Last game I pre-ordered No Man's Sky (I had fun with it, spent 60+ hours playing it so I got my money's worth) and before that was Advent Rising. Advent Rising had it's share of bugs, but I thought it could have been a great competitor to Halo had the developer had more to time to work on some areas and implement an online game for it, but the game fell short and most reviews were mediocre so the trilogy never happened. I haven't pre-ordered anything else and don't plan on it.

I was psyched for Dying Light 2, but I'd like to think that its release left a sour mark for any recent game with the multitude of bugs and performance issues and being that the game has been out nearly 6 months and it's still littered with bugs and performance issues....and the fact that the core gameplay is so different from the first, it's like going from playing Dragon Age: Origins to Dragon Age 2. I enjoyed the real time/pause strategy game play of Origins and wasn't a fan of the hack'n'slash of the second game and the recycled maps was a joke (much like in DL2 and their recycled GRE buildings).

I may not support CP2077 - I haven't picked up a copy of it - and I don't really support The Witcher series (first was boring, but story kept me playing and I didn't enjoy the combat changes in the 2nd one so I stopped playing the series), but I do like GoG and I support that platform.

The biggest reason CDPR failed with CP2077 is because they outsourced QA to a company that lied to them. This is good example of not doing your homework and not taking the time to do any in-house testing, thats where the arrogance steps in and starts that snowball of fail rolling.

I made a thread about that fiasco, I left it around here somewhere...:p

Tbh. most of the hype around Cyberpunk 2077 originated from the teaser. :cool:
It looked like the greatest game of the decade, and with leaving out game details the rumors where fueling the hype even more.


There where even rumours it would have multi player & it would destroy GTA5. :laugh: As we all know now, they couldn't even handle single player and are not going to implement multi player. Guess they just don't have the finances & knowledge to rework the engine for MP. On that scale I see only Rockstar could stem such a huge project. But I have to say Yager is doing an surprisingly awesome job with The Cycle:Frontier. And with the easy programmable Unreal Engine 5 we could see some newcomers to the MP open world party.

Lack of finances + lack of talent & the sellout to a publisher who's pushing deadlines and butchering your game design is the big problem in the gaming industry. Battlefield 2042 was on top ruined by a moronic leadership & bigoted dev's who where mocking their unhappy customers. Cyberpunk 2077 came out Dec 2020 and is hovering at around 10k players, which is not bad for a single player game. Battlefield 2042 on the other hand got released on Nov 2021 and is hovering at around 6k players (after the season 1 push), which is just horrible for an AAA multiplayer game. And after tons of talented dev's leaving because of the toxic & bigoted work environment I don't see the Battlefield Series coming back from the dead.

Ya I'm honestly not shocked. I'm glad I didn't buy CP2077 - played the game somewhere else as I wasn't pleased with some of the things I was hearing about it prior to launch and honestly...it's not a very good game. Now, some things I thought were really well-done in it like the animation quality for example. But the world didn't really grab me the way The Witcher world did.

The Witcher series is easily my favorite franchise currently and has been for a number of years now. I own all of the games on Steam and have even bought multiple copies of some of them for other people on Steam during sales as I just like them so much. My one wish with their next game in the franchise is that it doesn't get woke. If it goes that route, I have no doubt it'll turn to shit.

Use Paypal. Worked fine for me every time.
I buy from GOG when i can. Because i then own the game i am paying for. I download the installer, back it up to an external HDD and it's mine. Games on Steam and similar platforms only work when you have an internet connection and the servers are up.

The CB77 is an extremely good game, one of the best I've played, but at the same time is kind of....unpolished.
The gamers with over 10 years experience in gaming (write that in your cv. :p ) understand the value of CB77.
Even RDR2 had loads of issues at the beginning but Rockstar among very few others can deliver that level of detail and polishment in a similar size and complex environment.

The company may have lost its value but I really don't think it's because of the CB77. Most companies in all sectors have been affected by the war, inflation etc.
The witcher and CB series remain the most valuable assets the company has.

Use Paypal. Worked fine for me every time.
I buy from GOG when i can. Because i then own the game i am paying for. I download the installer, back it up to an external HDD and it's mine. Games on Steam and similar platforms only work when you have an internet connection and the servers are up.

some games work in steam's 'offline mode' - no way of telling if the games you play do unless you try it. Obviously you wont have access to Multiplayer if you start in offline mode.

Fellows, I have been a defender/supporter of CDRP even when some random crack-head was bashing them on a game site before Cyberpunk 2077 but no more. They are going to have to win the loyalty back if they even still care. They can easily do this if they make a great Witcher game.

It's sad that they are returning to The Witcher only now when so many gamers were asking for more Witcher games and CDPR ignored them and focused on Cyberpunk 2077. Well, look at how that fiasco turned out. Now they are finally returning to developing a Witcher game and I hope for the best.

How can you install them whithout an internet connection or when/if you loose your account or Steam is shut down or blacklisted ?
GOG is like when games came on CD's or DVD's and you could install them anywhere regardless of your internet connection. But this is a DRM matter too, not just the game platform.

Most Steam games use SteamStub DRM and Steamworks. Open-source tools exist for "dealing with" both of them. Then you can use something like Inno Setup to make your own offline installers for your Steam games.

If the game uses crapware like Denuvo, then you're SOL unless you're willing to dig a bit deeper.
