Everyone got paid and iirc they made a "profit" of 5.000 .
That's nice, but it still took a $10m investment upfront, and that money had to come from somewhere.

I don't get the capitalist dream of getting rich and buying more useless crap because you made a good game . Bioware made good money from DAO and you saw what followed . CDPR can do better without any EA like sharks lashing their sweaty backs.
If CD Projekt didn't make good money then they wouldn't have been able to fund CDPR to make The Witcher. The gaming public will not spend 35 now and then wait five years to get the game they paid for. If you disagree, then you can invest in a publically owned gaming company, of which there are several! (like EA )
