Cyberpunk 2077 sequel lead says avoiding crunch is key to keeping studios afloat: “Sustainability is incredibly important”

Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty’s quest director and the associate game director of the Cyberpunk sequel, Paweł Sasko, has been talking about the importance of sustainability in game development, and the benefits of not overworking teams to the point of crunch.

CD Projekt RED‘s 2020 action-RPG Cyberpunk 2077 had a shaky launch, and a turbulent development that, understandably, was said to have had a “significant” impact on the team’s morale. According to an interview with Aftermath, this caused some employees to leave the company, causing the studio to rethink its development processes. Thankfully, Sasko believes that the studio changed for the better during the making of the Phantom Liberty expansion, to the point where developers are now able to head into new projects without going through extended periods of overtime – or crunch – first.
