Tons of bugs huh, good thing they crunched the dev team to absolute death for like 6 months straight to get it ready for a holiday launch
Is that the one who was getting death threats?
I've never been involved in a game launch, but having been involved in a lot of projects much bigger than one, I'm willing to bet there's plenty of blame to go around for why the launch was delayed multiple times and the finished project is very much unfinished.
Yeah , FF15 and No Man's Sky also got death threats and crap because of the delays. Many games need a lot more time than they get to be ready for launch anyway and then publishers and the gaming public feed into this frenzied need to have it ASAP, and it's the QA departments, programmers, SDETs and other ground level staff that get punished, both by the public and by back to back to back to back to back 80+ hour work weeks.
And then there is Super Giant.
