The media told why there were so many errors in Cyberpunk 2077 – the game was simply poorly tested
Cyberpunk 2077 was launched at the end 2020. It turned out that there were many bugs and flaws in the game that were fixed over time. It is now clear that the project was not properly tested before it was released.
CD Projekt RED allegedly hired Quantic Lab, a Romanian company that previously tested The Witcher 3 to test the game. Although the company claimed otherwise, it was discovered that experienced testers had left Quantic Lab. This information is stated in a video posted on YouTube by Upper Echelon Gamers. The channel received a 72-page document containing test reports, data from personnel, and other pertinent information. An anonymous Quantic Lab employee allegedly gave this data to the channel’s author. The video does not contain screenshots or documents.
This video claims:
- Quantic Lab made false statements about the test team’s size to retain the contract.
- Many members of the team were brand new and needed training in parallel to testing.
- Romanian companies required that they had a daily limit on bugs. Therefore, all bugs were sent to developers. This meant that serious errors could not be detected quickly enough.
Also, it is noted that CD Projekt RED changed testing requirements, so now you only had to report important errors. However, time was lost.
LegacyKillaHD, a YouTube blogger who has previously reviewed Cyberpunk 2077 on YouTube, also asked LegacyKillaHD about the situation of some CD Projekt RED developers under anonymity. They said that they were aware of the issues in the game but didn’t have enough time to fix them.
Both companies have yet to make official comments.
