In recent times, every major production in the videogame industry has been accompanied by a certain controversy, either because of the intense days of intensive training that last for months, or because of creative issues. The last one to join this list? A new report by Kotaku collects the opinions of some former CD Projekt creatives who warn that Cyberpunk 2077 has undergone a turbulent development process that, in many aspects, resembles that of BioWare’s Anthem.
” I felt that there were hundreds of parallels that could be drawn between the story of Anthem’s hard development and the story behind the even more challenging development of Cyberpunk 2077, “says a former Polish studio creative who has chosen to remain anonymous. & Quot; Sometimes I felt that, simply, you could change the name of the studio and the game and everything would look very similar, almost identical ” says the creative in reference to the problems in the development of Anthem.
