Hello, guys, and welcome to the Gaming News for 17 Dec 2021. the system requirements for Dying Light 2 have been released, so feel free to take a look in case you're planning to play the game on PC and it breaks down clearly what you need for each type of gaming experience. Personally, I will be playing it on PlayStation 5 when it comes out. I was a big fan of the first game. I'm definitely looking forward to the second game.
STALKER 2 Cancels NFT Promo
And then the next bit of news for today is the developers behind STALKER 2 were planning to sell your identity and you being included in the game via the "metaverse" in exchange for NFTs. There has been a lot of backlash since then to a point where the developer of the game sent out a tweet yesterday that says, "Dear Stalkers, we hear you. Based on the feedback we received we've have made a decision to cancel anything NFT related in STALKER 2. The interests of our fans and players are the top priority for the team. We're making this game for you to enjoy whatever the cost is. If you care, we care too. With love, GSC Game World Team." Like I said yesterday, the majority has spoken so we will see how that turns out. I personally am against anything NFT I think it's silly, personally, and from what I've seen so far, people who done big spending and NFTs have mostly just lost money. It's good that they're trying to keep it away from gaming as much as possible. We'll see how long that lasts.
Cyberpunk 2077 Settlement
And then the last bit of news for today is the class action lawsuit by the shareholders against CD Projekt Red over the launch of Cyberpunk 2077 has apparently been settled for $1.85 million and a full court document was released which explains the ruling and so on. But it still needs to be approved by a court. Now, I personally feel that $1.85 million settlement is very, very low because the budget for the game was $300 million and they made that back and more on the first day of sales. $1.85 million will not have any sort of long term impact on CD Projekt Red. Some could argue that's a good thing, but in exchange for that $1.85 million, they give up their right to pursue any other case ever again against CD Projekt Red in the future regarding this issue. Again, I feel this is a very low settlement, in my opinion, what was an absolute disaster for the company. It damaged CD Projekt Red's reputation. It probably drove down the share price a lot and so on. Let me know what you think about that in the comment section as well. Anyway, guys, that's it for the Gaming News for today. Thank you so much as always, to all the new followers and I will see you tomorrow. Thanks, guys. Bye bye.
