PC Gamer: The Quantic Lab testing studio is still responsible for the poor state of Cyberpunk 2077 o

This summer, it was reported online that some of the blame for the unsuccessful release of Cyberpunk 2077 lay with the Quantic Lab testing studio, which misled CD Projekt RED about the reality of the project.

The PC Gamer interviewed several Quantic Lab employees, including former employees. According to their comments, the studio did lie to their customers about the number of testers.

However, the Cyberpunk 2077 test did seem to have involved a large number of people. It was so attractive to employees that they left other projects and came to test the game even from other units. But in one Quantic Lab, however, CD Projekt RED lied — not all staff members had stated experience. According to the tester who worked on Cyberpunk 2077 at QA studio, only 10 of the 30 people had experience of testing, and of those 10 there was no one with experience over a year.

CD Projekt RED complained several times about the work of Quantic Lab, and the latter responded by sending completed reports on minor errors to match daily quotas. This distracted testers who worked on higher-priority bugs, including those related to the main story assignments that prevented the game from going through.

At present, CD Projekt RED is not working with Quantic Lab. The contract was not extended in 2021, although it originally provided the possibility of continuing work on the upgrades and extensions of Cyberpunk 2077.

One of Quantic Lab's former employees said he wouldn't accuse QA studio of being Cyberpunk 2077 because the decision to release the game in that form was still for CD Projekt RED. But he admits that Quantic Lab contributed to the poor state of the project on the release.
