CEOs and other board members of CD Projekt Red will receive multi-million dollar bonuses this year, despite the still ongoing issues surrounding their latest release, Cyberpunk 2077.

Co-CEOs Marcin Iwiński and Adam Kiciński will each get end of the year bonuses of about $6.3M (USD) each. This is according to the company's annual report. CD Projekt Red board member and director of Cyberpunk 2077, Adam Badowski, will be awarded $4.2M in bonuses.

Bloomberg says that these bonuses come from CD Projekt Red's profit share program. This program pulls 20% of the company's annual earnings and splits it among staff members. 10% of that goes to the board of directors while the other 10% is distributed among the employees. As such, 865 employees are part of this program and they will split roughly $29.8M amongst them.

Speaking with Bloomberg, some employees say that they expect to receive between $5,000 and $9,000 in bonuses. Some senior staff may see as much as $20,000. A spokesperson for CD Projekt Red says that the company has "allocated $29.8M to 865 employees, for an average of about $34,000 each." These figures are obviously a far cry from the multiple millions that management are collecting.

Keep in mind that these profit share amounts could have been much, much larger for all parties involved had the game not shipped in such a dire state. Multiple stores pulled the game from being on sale, at least temporarily, and many also offered full refunds. The PlayStation Store still does not have Cyberpunk 2077 available for purchase digitally.
