Big news: The most anticipated game of 2020 (Cyberpunk 2077) was released to monster sales and less than positive reviews from customers.
Big question #1: What is Cyberpunk 2077?
WFH for the win: Start to finish the game will take 175+ hours to complete, so Mr. Screens just mapped out your next 22 days at “the office.”
Big question #2: How much did it cost to develop?
Most expensive video games, according to ScreenRant:
1) Grand Theft Auto 5 – $265M
The bear case for Cyberpunk 2077: The game appears to have been rushed to market (after 8 years) and performs poorly on current generation consoles (Xbox One and Playstation 4), which is a problem since bots are the only “people” who have been able to purchase the new consoles…
FYI: This is still what Mr. Screens is doing right now…
The bull case for Cyberpunk 2077: 8M+ people paid $60+ to pre-order the game generating $480M. Despite the problems at launch, the game had 1M concurrent online users 2 hours after release.
PSA: The video game market is so large that a game requiring an apology and offer for refunds during its initial week made close to $500M!!!
