Cyberpunk 2077 developers admitted to releasing a raw game

Bloomberg was able to conduct its own investigation into why Cyberpunk 2077 turned out to be a raw game. It turned out that behind a failed start there are a lot of problems within the company: from incorrect planning of release dates to not the best working conditions. All this has led to the fact that the Polish company CD Projekt SA has been trying to fix it for a month and a half, but so far it is not very good at it.

CD Projekt SA CEO Marcin Iwiński explains for the second time in a month

There are, perhaps, two main problems: the development of the engine in parallel with the creation of the game itself and the poor understanding of technical issues on the part of management – marketers and managers did not understand how long it takes to fully create a game. In an anonymous interview with more than 20 current and former CD Projekt employees, they say that already in the first discussions of the game, the company chose to focus on marketing at the expense of development, and the unrealistic release schedule of Cyberpunk 2077 led to the fact that some worked overtime long before the release … It should also be said about low salaries: a beginner programmer received only about $ 700 per month.

According to one employee, the developers, based on the state of affairs in 2019, expected the game to be released only in 2022. That is, marketers have “accelerated” the schedule by more than a year. At the same time, the company did not want to license solutions and technologies that could be licensed in the process of creating Cyberpunk 2077 – instead, they developed them independently. It turned out more expensive and worse than if they used well-debugged analogues.

Another employee described the process of creating Cyberpunk 2077 quite vividly: “Imagine that you are driving a train in front of which the rails are laid.” It’s about the parallel creation of the engine and the game itself. In general, it is obvious that the developers involved in the creation of the game clearly understood that Cyberpunk 2077 would be released raw.

What’s left now? Correct situations with the help of various patches – instead of starting to expand the game universe of “cyberpunk” or switch resources to the next part of “The Witcher”. The head of CD Projekt SA, Marcin Iwinski, promised the next major patch at the end of January, and then, a couple of weeks later, another. He also published a public statement this week in which he took personal responsibility for the failed start of the game and asked fans not to blame the team. This, by the way, is Iwinski’s second apology in a month, which is seen as an attempt to reassure investors. And this is not surprising, because since December 10, amid all the problems of Cyberpunk 2077, CD Projekt shares have dropped by 30%.

The Samsung Galaxy A14 5G smartphone has been spotted in the Google Console, thanks to which we now know some of its parameters.

The design is similar to the Galaxy S23, but the screen is larger than the Galaxy S23 Ultra.  Galaxy A14 5G spotted in Google Console database

In particular, Google confirms Geekbench data that the device will be based on the new SoC Exynos 1330. Its configuration includes two Cortex-A78 cores, six Cortex-A55 cores and a Mali-G68 MC2 GPU.

In addition, the smartphone will receive up to 6 GB of RAM and a large 6.8-inch screen, possibly with support for 90 Hz.

The new platform will be much more productive than the Exynos 850, which is Samsung’s most basic SoC so far. But the Exynos 850 does not have a 5G modem and is used in very cheap smartphones. For example, in the Galaxy A13. But the Galaxy A13 5G already relies on the Dimensity 700. However, the first tests show that the Exynos 1330 will be faster than this MediaTek solution.

In terms of design, as we already know, the new Samsung will be made in the same style as the new flagship Galaxy S23. At the same time, the display of the state employee will be even larger than that of the Galaxy S23 Ultra, according to all available data.

Intel graphics cards are drastically faster in some older games

Intel Arc graphics cards, among other things, have rather mediocre performance in older games. But today the company has released a fresh driver that significantly changes the situation, although not in all games.

The company has worked on optimization for some specific games, adding native support for DirectX 9. In particular, it is important to note Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, in which the performance of Arc adapters increased by almost 80%. The company has also worked on the 1% percentile, increasing the rate by up to 2.3 times, which should make the gameplay smoother.
