    Even if that is the case, they are trying to optimize the game on 9 platforms and get a simultaneous release which is insane. But like I said, if they were to delay the release to some of the versions, they can get this out on time.

    You'll get no argument from me, but honestly any one of the platforms it's releasing for could be to blame, nine systems is a lot for simultaneous launch. I just assume that streaming would have the majority of unexpected technical hurdles to jump.

    With all the delays this game has had, I'm starting to get Mighty No. 9 flashbacks.

    Oh well. At least we got Ghostrunner to hold us over.

    Delay is bad but if it means the game runs smooth I'm all for it.

    At this point, if the game doesn't hit instant classic like BotW then it would definitely become second Duke Nukem Forever. "A delayed game is eventually good" is what everyone expect so the more delay they got, the more people expectation for it will rise. That why you just don't run your mouth too soon.

    This game is so hyped up the ass that there is no way it can match expectations regardless how many delays there are.

    I'm sure it'll be fine and its admirable that they want to make sure when it finally comes out its a quality release.

    CDPR will get a pass because the made The Witcher 3, but I doubt many other companies would. I don't mind games being pushed back/delayed, I'd rather them do it right the first time, but the whole "no crunch" followed by crunch and then announcing that it is going gold when you knew full well they had massive Day 0/Day1 patches in mind as they said that.

    Yes, they're total fucking incompetent dorks that can't ever seen to meet already generous deadlines.

    Funny enough, what I've been seeing is a bit of a mix of the "pass" mentality, and calling them out. I've seen a lot of folks, both on and off this site, pointing out how skeevy it is to put everyone under crunch after a delay, and then to delay it once again.

    a delayed game is better than a rushed, broken game

    At this point, it should be "it's done when it's done."

    As long as the game is good, I don't personally care, I'll buy it on release if it isn't too broken.

    A release for 9 platforms, that include next gen and streaming services, must be a hell for the QA and dev team. I don't envy them, their management must be aware of that, but since there's so little competition for AAA titles on the holiday season (a next gen launch at that one) missing such a golden window of opportunity would be tragic.

    People, do try to cut them some slack, covid made shit hard for everyone, where I work pretty much everything got pushed back by a lot, and I can only imagine a big project like this got even more complicated.

    Also, it's always hilarious that people try to use whatever excuse to claim moral superiority for pirating stuff, as if a delay makes it ok to steal. Just own the fact that you don't want to pay dudes, nobody really gives a shit anyway.

    People are overexaggerating this endemic.
    Piracy isn't theft. It's illegal, but it isn't theft.

    Oh and people love to try and use this argument to justify themselves. It's only Semantics, or is it really that important what you call it?. At the end of the day, you are using someone else's work without paying for it.
