It's February 2021, and most of the drama surrounding CD Projekt Red's game Cyberpunk 2077 has died down. After several years of teasers, trailers, details, and controversies, the release of Cyberpunk might just have been one of the most disastrous in gaming history. Despite the game working pretty well on top tier consoles and PCs, it was unfinished on last-gen tech and lacked many of the features players expected upon release.
Now, months after release, after the game was pulled from the PlayStation store, and after fans fought over high review scores, Cyberpunk 2077 is being forgotten about. People are moving on, and yet they're still talking about CDPR's previous game The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
A post on Reddit from one buyer of Cyberpunk talks about how disappointing it is that they're not thinking about a game that was so highly anticipated anymore. User DannyM2, like many others, says they still frequently think about The Witcher 3 and expected the same for Cyberpunk but has come to accept that the game was "just OK and quickly forgotten about".
Despite the post just being about Danny's vague disappointment and sadness about the whole affair, many, many people agreed. A lot of comments felt like Danny had summed up how they felt about being able to play The Witcher 3 over and over and over, but how a second playthrough of Cyberpunk left them "bored".
Others commented on how it wasn't the glitches or bugs that let them down, it was missing out on the first six months of the game in a cutscene or not having fun side activities to get lost in. Someone even thought it felt like how Game of Thrones ended - waiting years to see the walkers and then feeling deflated with the result.
Right now CD Projekt is half working on keeping the source code that was stolen from them hidden away, and half on updating the game so it'll run better on last-gen consoles. Not to mention the fact they're supposed to be bringing a truly next-gen version of Cyberpunk to the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series at some point too.
When those updates happen eventually, we hope it's both a significant improvement to the quality of the title and the game that the developers want Cyberpunk to be. Maybe fans will be interested once again in the world of Cyberpunk 2077 down the line.
