Cyberpunk 2077 like No Man’s Sky – leak repair plans

UPDATE:

A CD Projekt employee denied the following information on the Cyberpunk 2077 forum.

The most important information:

  • an alleged entry from one of the creators of Cyberpunk 2077 has been circulating for weeks;
  • the news is mainly complaints about the production of the game, but the author mentioned the removed content and the title fix;
  • According to the “creator”, Cyberpunk 2077 will see two major updates in mid-March and even larger ones in June, compared to those that changed No Man’s Sky.

No matter how much you praise these or other elements of Cyberpunk 2077, it cannot be denied that the premiere of the Polish game left much to be desired. When the creators themselves raise uproar, the company is threatened with a lawsuit, and its president apologizes to players for not the best debut, there is probably no room for counter-arguments. Of course, representatives of CD Projekt quickly assured that they are working on improving the game and will remove the most serious defects by the end of February.

However, it may take much longer to repair the title. This is suggested by the entry circulating on the Internet by an alleged employee of the CD Projekt RED studio about improvement Cyberpunk 2077. The text has been available for weeks, but not in its original form, because it disappears from the Internet immediately after each posting. Nevertheless, Internet users constantly pass on the content of the message on the following pages (including our forum, see the ste100 user’s post). It also caught the attention of the YouTube Open World Games channel and it was probably thanks to him that the leak gained more publicity. Please note, however, that there is no evidence that the original author was actually an employee of CD Projekt RED. Therefore, we recommend that you be careful with the information that we summarize below.

Complaints (creators) continued

Although the most popular was information about the removed content and plans to fix the game, it is impossible not to ignore the alleged creator’s complaints, affecting the entire text. The author stated that morale at CD Projekt RED is very low and in the near future we can expect “big departures” from the studio. He himself allows it for “communication problems” and the fact that the project leaders do not set clear goals, although he did not fail to address the issue of the removed content (more on this later), and even Keanu Reeves (in short: the author liked him as a human, but the original Johnny Silverhand was supposed to be a much bigger “geek”, surpassing a certain king in The Witcher trilogy.)

Interestingly, the developers are supposed to regard this problematic debut as a positive one. It is supposed to be a “bucket of cold water” for people who pressed for the premiere of Cyberpunk 2077, despite numerous objections raised by the creators.

Cyberpunk 2077 and the console issue

It’s no secret that the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One releases are the main (though definitely not the only) reason behind Cyberpunk 2077’s harsh criticism. According to the alleged developer, the team is to rewrite all the code for the version for these platforms from scratch. It sounds absurd, but it may not refer to the code of the whole game as to the so-called “Platform specific code”, related to the operation of the program on a given platform. Fortunately, it probably won’t be needed for ninth-generation consoles. The author assures that thanks to Sony’s “excellent devkit”, the PlayStation 5 version is better in this respect than on PCs, and the XSX / S release is just a matter of “rewriting the code”.

Cyberpunk 2077 is like No Man’s Sky

We mentioned that officially Cyberpunk 2077 will receive huge updates this month and next, which should eliminate most of the serious bugs. However, the author of the post in question claims that two serious patches will not appear until mid-March. What’s more, CD Projekt RED plans to implement the revival plan by June Cyberpunk 2077 on a fashion No Man’s Sky. Then the title should – as the “creator” wants – to appear in the “intended” form.

  Cyberpunk 2077 without demo version

A comparison with the work of Hello Games studio is easy to understand. When NMS debuted in 2016, the title was cited as a textbook example of marketing over content. The lack of a large part of the content meant that the gameplay did not coincide in any way with what the developers had announced. The game soon gained a terrible reputation and many said that Hello Games was over. However, now, after many massive updates, the memory of broken promises has given way to recognition for the efforts of creators who have not abandoned a project – seemingly doomed to oblivion.

So it’s easy to understand how the creators of Cyberpunk 2077 refer to that project. Especially since – like No Man’s Sky – CD Projekt RED definitely has potential, as evidenced by reviews on Steam. Of course, one could be a cynic and indicate a large group of productions with potential that a similar art failed to achieve (or, they were not given a chance).

Bugs and cut content

The patch announcements – both the official one and the leak in question – are welcome, but overall promises like “there will be a patch in March and June” and “we’ll fix everything” are a bit too crude to be taken seriously. Unfortunately, while the alleged creator mentions things that can be corrected or added, most writes about them in the context of complaining about his alleged employer. As a result, it is difficult to say which of the elements are listed as possible additions (for example, as part of free DLC), and which are only given as an example of these or other offenses of the project leaders.

Nevertheless, the “developer” confirmed that CD Projekt RED is working on a problem with the detection of paths by police officers. He did not fail to add that the system worked great until someone – to say the least – broke it. As a result, we received a meme in the form of the guardians of the “law” teleporting behind the hero’s back. More specifically, he mentioned the Malkavian Path-style underground city from Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines. Nevertheless, some Internet users point out that this may explain the presence of useless abilities (for example, those related to endless breathing under water).

Speaking of the cut content, the “creator” hinted that a large part of the apartments were closed to players in the released version of the game. Perhaps one of the major updates will make them open again. He also mentioned two side stories (or “Arcs” if you prefer the term) which were removed because one of the missions incorrectly placed a hero after completing it and was effectively wiping the save file. However, if this problem was solved, perhaps CD Projekt RED would be tempted to add these tasks in – let’s call it – version 2.0 of Cyberpunk 2077? The same applies to other interesting quests (for example, a very extensive side quest with the Max-Tac group) and over 50,000 dialogue lines allegedly removed by the developers. Or a system of gang “minor violence” generating random events in the game world that we could experience or interfere with for one reason or another.

We emphasize once again: the above information comes from an unconfirmed source. They may well be the creation of an authentic CD Projekt RED employee as well as the invention of a fan or “professional” Internet troll. For now, the developers have not mentioned the plans to release an update or DLC after February. Therefore, we recommend that you treat them only as rumors.
