“Dian Yu Ren Ke 2077” was widely criticized by players due to a large number of problems when it was released, and the reputation of the developer CDPR also plummeted. Especially on the console, the game has too many problems to ignore. And now, according to a new report, the catastrophic launch of “Electric Rider 2077” may also be related to the failure of the company that outsourced the quality control team.
Ahead of the update and fixes for Rider 2077, CDPR released a statement claiming that its quality control team simply hadn’t caught all the bugs people had when launching the game.
While many have long dismissed the announcement as a PR rhetoric, YouTube channel Upper Echelon Gamers has released a 72-page document that sheds light on some of what actually happened at Quantic Lab, CDPR’s outsourced quality control team.
According to the documents allegedly leaked to Upper Echelon Gamers by the whistleblower, Quantic Lab not only exaggerated the size of the quality control team for “Echelon Traitor 2077”, but also concealed the fact that it was trying to save costs or to win the contract. The team was actually made up of rookies with little work experience.
On top of that, Quantic Lab limited the number of bugs reported per day, which resulted in employees reporting irrelevant bugs instead of focusing on the most common bugs.
The document itself is quite detailed, providing in-depth information on production progress and various internal sources, so forgery is unlikely. Currently, neither CDPR nor Quantic Lab have issued a statement on this.
