An end of development crunch is one thing, but a year long crunch? Staff barely seeing their families for 6 months? 100 hour weeks? This is an extreme case even by many gaming companies already dismal standards, not even particularly efficient (Particularly in Poland) too as already pointed out, lots of people getting paid more per hour in overtime while inevitably working at a lower per hour rate is an expensive band aid solution to under resourcing.

Not really an issue, It's just a video game, People are literally having full blown nervous breakdowns over this, Pathetic.

My interpretation is people were upset over the shabby treatment of the developers and other employees.

Yes, most of the anger is over the treatment of those guys. And when everyone jumps in saying " i do xx hours a week. What are they complaining about", most of those people are active when doing those hours.

100 hour work weeks static behind a desk in the same chair is so mentally taxing and physically unhealthy it should be legally challenged.

It's not just the long hours, telling them something that dramatically affects their day to day lives through a tweet is pretty disrespectful IMO.

That being said, the internal email and twitter post were made at the same time, hence why some Devs saw it there first before reading the internal email.

Well I'm sure they have Slack or some equal application to which the company uses. I would bet they got it there too which is basically going to be the first thing they check. Considering you should be at your computer working and not on your phone after all(unless it was during their lunch/break I suppose)
