By information Bloomberg publications, the heads of the Polish studio CD PROJEKT RED took full responsibility for the numerous bugs that were identified by users during the global launch of Cyberpunk 2077. The company will not cut bonuses and bonuses to its employees for problems in the game.
“We underestimated the scale and complexity that must be overcome to make this game a reality, and yet you did your best to create and release an ambitious and special game,” wrote Adam Badowski, studio head and creative director of Cyberpunk. 2077, in an email to their employees.
Studio CD PROJEKT RED calculated bonuses to its developers until December 10, according to the game’s estimates on the portal Metacritic, provided that the threshold of 90 points (out of 100) is exceeded there. From December 10, this restriction has been lifted. The studio considered that this measure was simply unfair in the current circumstances. Now all bonuses will be paid to developers regardless of the game’s ratings.
CD PROJEKT RED team leaders give their employees additional bonus tokens every month, which are then taken into account in bonuses. With this system, in order to receive a large number of tokens, developers not only have to solve current problems, but also show their bosses that each of them works harder and harder than the rest of the team. This is provided that the studio management demanded from their employees to work six days a week until the release of Cyberpunk 2077.
Now, tokens and bonuses for employee overtime will not “burn out”, as they could if they were further tied to the ratings of the game by users. Currently, these estimates have begun to decline. And the studio’s shareholders, who used this parameter to independently evaluate the work of CD PROJEKT RED employees on the game, also accepted the position of the studio’s management.
In addition to the full payment of the bonus program, at the end of September this year, the CD PROJEKT RED management announced, which plans to distribute 10% of the company’s profits in 2020 among all developers.

Even Xbox One will be able to give out 60 ks? AMD FSR 2.0 Technology Coming to Microsoft Consoles
AMD FSR 2.0 technology is coming soon to Xbox consoles.
This was reported by representatives of the GPUOpen team, as well as a Microsoft employee, that is, these are not rumors. However, there are no exact dates yet.
But it is known that FSR 2.0 will appear not only on the Xbox Series, but also on the Xbox One, which may allow the latter to actually get a second life, since the console will be able to better cope with modern games.
At the same time, in the case of consoles, you need to understand that they almost always support various upscaling technologies anyway. Consoles have a very long lifespan, and their hardware must be able to handle new games years after the device’s release. As such, it’s hard to say just how much FSR 2.0 will help consoles handle modern games or higher resolutions better.
It is also worth remembering that FSR 2.0 has been integrated into Unreal Engine 4 and 5 as a plug-in, which makes it easier to integrate the technology into relevant games.
