This summer, there were reports on the Internet that the Quantic Lab test studio is partly responsible for the unsuccessful release of Cyberpunk 2077, which deceived CD Projekt RED about the real situation while working on the project. Edition PC Gamer conducted its own investigation, which confirmed this information.

PC Gamer interviewed several Quantic Lab employees, some of whom were former. Quantic Lab executives negotiated a single shift and forced them to work two hours later. They told the partner companies that the assessment team was large.
While there were some who were involved in testing Cyberpunk 2077, a lot of people could definitely be. As much as people were bringing in employees, they were leaving another project and coming to test the game, even from other departments. Even though it was in a Quantic Lab, CD Projekt RED still lied, not all employees had valued experience. According to a tester who worked on the Cyberpunk 2077 project at a QA studio, thirty-six people had only seven testing experiences, and of those nine ten, none had more than a year of experience. .
CD Projekt RED repeatedly complained about Quantic Labs’ work, and Quantic Lab responded with a full minor bug report to meet daily quotas. Testers were distracted by their ability to test high quality bugs, like main story missions, and also unable to complete the game.
CD Projekt RED does not currently work in Quantic Lab. The contract was not renewed in 2021, but a few months later it included the option to continue working on Cyberpunk 2077 updates and expansions.
One of the former Quantic Lab employees said he wouldn’t blame the QA studio for the release of Cyberpunk 2077, as the decision to release the game in this format was still with CD Projekt RED. But he acknowledges the fact that Quantic Lab contributed to the unsatisfactory development upon release.
The release of Cyberpunk 2077 was made public on December 10, 2020 for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. And on February 15, 2022, an update for the game for Xbox X/S and PlayStation 5 became available.
