Cyberpunk 2077 Developers Reject GameFAQ Rumors

Claims made by an alleged CD Projekt Red developer have been rebuked by members of Cyberpunk 2077's development team. After a messy launch, Cyberpunk 2077 has spurred many conspiracy theories, and speculation as to how a game can be released in such a state. But, as usual, don’t believe everything you read on the internet!

A couple of days ago, claims by an alleged CD Projekt Red (CDPR) developer made waves when it was posted on GameFAQs, containing tons of potential information about Cyberpunk 2077’s troubled development. The thing is, that ‘potential information’ might not have been anything at all, at least according to CDPR themselves.

The original post made all sorts of claims about the games rushed development, including insights about the behavior and decisions of executives in the leadup to Cyberpunk 2077’s disastrous launch on December 10. Well, guys, it may have all been bollocks! Well, maybe not bollocks, but that post was probably not legit.

Not all claims made in the post have been commented on, as developers at the Polish studio reached out on Twitter to say that the claims were “simply not true”. It seems clear that CDPR has a long story to tell when it comes to Cyberpunk 2077’s development, but the rant that was posted on GameFAQs seems to be nothing but fiction.

Whilst the situation with Cyberpunk 2077 is hugely frustrating – you shouldn’t play the game yet, it’s still broken – this does spell a little bit of optimism. That optimism comes in the form of one of the principal claims made in the rant: that Patch 1.07 would not be out until March.

If, as CDPR claims on Twitter, this post is entirely untrue, then there is more hope for a soon release of this much needed, and highly anticipated patch. We all want to get the chance to play Cyberpunk 2077 in its optimal state, and for the game to return to the PlayStation Store. March sounded a bit far-fetched, so it is good that this is probably untrue.

What still remains to be explained, however, is why is CDPR so quiet on all of this. We hope it is because they are intently focused on patching and fixing Cyberpunk 2077, but why has barely anything come out of the developer? Curious... very curious...

The Polish developer continues to dodge questions from outlets like ourselves, and we are yet to receive a single comment from them. What’s more, with lawsuits looming from investors, the lack of transparency over release dates, and questions unanswered about why so many gamers ended up buying a broken game, this continued radio silence is troubling to say the least.

The rumors that were spread on GameFAQs may be false, but yet again, this is purely according to CDPR. A couple of members of the team have come out and talked about it, but no real information has been shared. Hopefully one thing is true from the ‘rant’: that the game will make a ‘No Man’s Sky-style comeback’ by the end of 2021.
