I completely agree Dhruin, that is my experience as well. I work as a developer, and even though I do work overtime to complete code and make sure things are solid, I certainly do not go without pay for longer periods of time just to patch something up. I really don't think PB is in a position to keep paying their developers if they lose their financial support, and you just can't expect developers to work with no pay - they do have bills to pay and mouths to feed, you can't exactly let your family starve just to complete a patch.
Also, keep in mind that game development is not like normal development. These guys already work 10-12 hours per day, so they can't do it in their spare time - most of them have no spare time as it is. In fact, quite a few game developers live in their offices (they have bedrooms/kitchens in their office building and sleep over more often than not).
