Ah, CD Projekt Red's Cyberpunk 2077, the game that launched a thousand YouTube videos.
With much of the heat dialed down after the game's rocky December 2020 release, CD Projekt and CDPR co-founder Marcin Iwinski took to YouTube and the Internet to express his company's continued "commitment to quality".
But while Mr. Iwinski's statement contains some much needed affirmations, the question remains, did it go far enough?
And just why are there so many statements about what the company did or did not expect?
Let's dive in.
If you have to express your commitment, that commitment is probably already in doubt...in Virtual Legality.
