Cyberpunk 2077 has been one of the most controversial games in the last year, and CD Projekt Red have come forward to shoot down a new set of rumors recently posted to Reddit about the game's future.
Let's go over the Cyberpunk 2077 rumors, and how CD Projekt Red have come public to deny them.
Cyberpunk 2077 Rumors Denied by CD Projekt Red
CD Projekt Red have come forward in a rare move to deny recent rumors and allegations around Cyberpunk 2077.
These rumors were originally posted to Reddit.com/r/GamingLeaksandRumors, you can read over them in full here.
Among these rumors, the following allegations were made:
"CDPR hurt themselves to keep investors safe and sound. Now devs are hearing plans of a "No Man's Sky" style comeback due to late June. The first two patches should come out mid-March, despite what's been said by top execs. There will be major departures from the studio in the coming months. Dev morale is on an all time down and Sony is roasting our asses due to the gigantic volume of refund requests. There will be a meeting today with Sony execs to figure out a way to compensate players threatening with legal action. Sony Japan is specially furious."
"There's people that get hired for whatever reason and stay in the company due to being "trusted by the top dogs". A good chunk of code is getting scrapped and rewritten from scratch. The intended game might be ready by June 2021."
"The update that is due to June will sort out all of the bugs. The code for the PS4/Xbox One is getting scrapped and done separately. PS5's code is an improvement on the PC due to the awesome dev kit Sony put together for this gen."
These are far from the only allegations made in the post, but these are some of the highlights that have now been outright denied by CD Projekt Red.
