After 'Cyberpunk 2077's' release, the whole CD PROJEKT RED studio focused on both improving the game and its own way of working. CDPR's Technical Support team (now Player Experience & Safety), which is an example of a team that works between dev and publishing with strong connections to both, actively participated in the 'Cyberpunk 2077' fixing and improvement process. An example of the journey of a 'Cyberpunk 2077' bug reported to support shows how different perspectives are used throughout the process of improving a game. The speaker argues that using all those perspectives results in more relevant actions on the part of the studio, which wouldn't be possible without teams from the whole dev-publishing spectrum working together. Furthermore, CDPR taking the direction of greater togetherness and closer internal cooperation after 'Cyberpunk 2077's' release is discussed.
Attendees will learn about CD PROJEKT RED's approach to tracking and addressing player reports, and follow the journey of a bug from a report to an update being published. The positive effects of close cooperation of the whole game dev-publishing spectrum for accurately assessing and addressing issues will also be discussed. Studios where teams from all walks of game-making life work together create larger diversity of perspectives and, ultimately, better outcomes for the games.
The presentation is intended for anyone who works in games. Several examples used will employ jargon, but to provide illustration, not be analyzed in detail. The speaker would like the presentation to also carry value for those who would like to learn more about making games.
