Thanks. Looks like it may be worth holding off for a ps5 version.

I was thinking of the same. However, given how much time I have to play, I'll probably only be about 10hrs in by the time a next gen patch gets released.

I agree. Surely there would be a way to keep the release date and look after the employees though? What about extended paid leave after completion, around 8 weeks or so. Or a 2 or 3 day working week for a 3 to 6 month period?


Is a 6 day working week uncommon these days? I work this for 40 weeks a year, 60hrs+. Not right, but probably not that unusual.

It's very unusual. What do you do where you think that's normal?

The average full time working week is 42.5h in the UK:

60+ hours is very much an outlier

That's not a good reflection of modern capitalism, I don't think anyone should need to, or be forced to work 6 days a week, without some sort of significant compromise.

Could you imagine if they were all given 8 weeks off after crunching? The fallout would be unreal. 2 months minimum before any bugs are fixed. People would flip their gooseberry fool.

I like big maps, if it’s good to look at and there’s lots going on in the environment, if there’s a lot to it. Like RDR2 or Horizon or something.

OK, what about a shorter working week, for a period?

I know this one's focusing on the vehicles but the fact they're even having one of these about the vehicles is really strengthening that GTA: Dystopia vibe.

To be fair it would be really odd having a modern city setting without a load of traffic.
London would look super weird without all the buses, taxis and general traffic.

This is true, but they never had a Witcher spot about the horse.

Driving and driving adjacent activities are being pushed as a central pillar, alongside combat and moreso than dialogue or story so far. Obviously this is a win-win for them: they get the GTA crowd interested as well as the FPS gamers and the Witcher fans. I'm still holding out some hope some of the latter's depth is simply lying in wait, but still. I'm also losing interest with every trailer.
