This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.
NOTICE: Some online security services are reporting that information for a limited number of users from this site is for sale on the "dark web." As of right now, there is no direct evidence of this, but change your password just to be safe.

So, has anyone downloaded the 1.2 update, now that it's out?

From what I've heard, it's a HUGE laundry list of bug fixes, some of which are astonishing for having slid through quality testing the first time (assuming CDPR did any QA at all on this crap).

I've also heard CDPR is canceling any multiplayer projects for CP2077. My guess is that they'll work to clean up the worst of the bugs in the existing game, and call it a day. They're already hinting at a fourth Witcher game.

Bug fixes make it more likely I might pick up the game soon, but the cutting of multiplayer means I likely won't play it for all that long (IIRC, isn't the campaign relatively short for an open-world game?), so still undecided.

For a AAA franchise, the state the game was released in is nothing short than a complete disaster. Big corp keeps taking gamers for idiots with unfinished games, loot boxes, and micro transactions. I couldn’t believe this game was made by the same people who brought us Witcher 3. CDPR is just another publicly traded company now. Investors are the ones making the decisions, devs don’t have much of an opinion. That’s why Indie keeps gaining momentum.

Even investors know that releasing a crap-tier Early Access (at BEST) game as 'finished product' is a long-term losing proposition.

As I understand it, from the accounts I've read and seen, there was a major management reshuffle as well as a massive shift in the proposed direction of the game by said management. This is where having clear direction in a project shines; know what you're aiming for before you spend a dollar.

There was also a lawsuit by their investors claiming that management lied to them regarding the status of CP2077 all the way up until the release date.
