Right here’s the primary rule of studying about videogames on the web: don’t imagine random posters on the GameFAQs boards. Posters there have now graduated from telling you how one can completely get the Triforce in Ocarina of Time to now posing as sport builders desirous to air their employer’s soiled laundry. One cockamamie rant from a supposed Cyberpunk 2077 dev has now gained sufficient traction that CD Projekt Pink itself has stepped in to say it’s not true.
“Usually we don’t touch upon rumors,” CD Projekt says in a tweet, “however this time we wished to make an exception as this story is just not true.” Usually I’d clarify what the studio’s responding to earlier than quoting their response, however I feel it’s higher right here to say that that is basically fanfiction earlier than I even get into it.
In broad strokes, the ‘developer’ rant means that CDPR lower a complete lot of content material and shipped early to make the 2020 launch date and please buyers. The sport’s set to make a “No Man’s Sky-style comeback”, although the promised January and February patches have been pushed again to March. “Dev morale is on an all time down and Sony is roasting our asses”, the GameFAQs put up says. “Sony Japan is specifically livid.”
The weirder half within the message is an apart about Keanu Reeves’ function within the sport: “Our authentic Johnny was method cooler and appeared like a maniac. Suppose Foltest on crack.” The fictional dev provides that “Our authentic Johnny was closely impressed by David Hayter’s Stable Snake from the primary MGS and imagine it or not, Cillian Murphy.”
The message concludes by promising how good the upcoming DLC and restored content material might be. “You guys ought to have the entire sport by the tip of subsequent 12 months, if every little thing goes properly.”

I’ve no doubts that Cyberpunk 2077 will turn into a significantly better sport within the months to return, however maybe not exactly as this GameFAQs consumer predicts. There are different RPG games so that you can get pleasure from whereas awaiting additional Cyberpunk patches, although maybe none set in so vibrant a fantasy world as this specific hearsay.
