It’s been said a million times already but Cyberpunk 2077’s launch hasn’t exactly been the best. From numerous bugs to extreme performance issues on last gen consoles that even got the game delisted from the PlayStation Store, many have been upset with how the game released. And many have also voiced their opinions on the subject online.

However, a rumor that has been going around about Cyberpunk 2077's troubled development that has recently gained a lot of traction is completely false, according to the developers CD Projekt Red.

The rumor revealed supposed comments from a CDPR developer who remained anonymous, and touched on issues with cut content, major updates and patches, company executive pressure, and entire rewrites of code along with departures from key developers.

They even made a direct comparison to No Mans Sky and it's troubled launch that eventually made a major comeback thanks to multiple free content updates.

Since the rumor has spread quite significantly, an employee at CDPR known as Vattier responded on the official CD Projekt Red forums stating that they are “simply not true,” breaking one of their rules for never commenting on rumors.

We usually do not comment on rumours,” Vattier said in response to the forum post, “but this is simply not true.

This does not mean that CDPR are no longer working on getting the game into a good state that they intended it to be in at launch, or that they are no longer working on the planned DLC, free or otherwise. Instead, it just means that the lavish comments made about the game’s development aren’t true, and instead we should just wait and see what the developers reveal next.

What do you think? Did you read the rumor? How do you feel about the state of Cyberpunk 2077 so far? Do you think it will become another No Mans Sky? And what could make it better? Let us know!

Are you confident CDPR will fix Cyberpunk 2077 to the way it was intended?

How do you feel about the state of Cyberpunk 2077 so far?

How long are you willing to wait until CP2077 is up to standard?

If they say that the rumors "simply not true" then why the game was in this state at launch? Can it be because of rushing the game to release it? I hope i can get my correct honest answer. Happy New Year to everyone btw :).

ThE GaMe LaUnCheD pErFect. Our vision was fulfilled there is absolutely no faults in this game. Also we had to speak out even though we dont comment on rumours practically confirming the rumour... You dont have to be a CDPR dev to see this game development had serious problems.

I'm willing to wait about 5 years, I think that's reasonable in today's gaming.

And your mentality is the reason why others get half finished broken games because the consumers just dont care. You either push back to the gaming industry our you get made a door matt.

They'll fix it eventually but thats not good enough as it should not have released in the state that it did in the first place. Its why even though no mans sky is now good I just cant forget how it was on launch.

Personally I am not confident if CDPR will truly fix everything, I am confident they will fix bugs, but whether underdeveloped systems, like AI, will see proper development is yet to be seen. Personally I would say games overall state is ok, 7/10, whether this will change we will see, hopefully it gets similar treatment as No Man's Sky and becomes great,...

... but currently I can only talk about game we have, not game we hope we will eventually get. Still, considering I bought it, I guess I will wait and see. I mean it is not like I don't own the game already, but for more major stuff, I do feel they will need at least 6 months, if not a year to fix. Provided focus isn't shifted too much on free DLC to "make everyone happy and distracted".

Don't get me wrong, free DLC is nice, but shouldn't be priority when game is unfinished and underdeveloped. I think fixing that should take priority. Also before someone goes about fun, yes it is fun, which is only reason it isn't 5/10, because game doesn't need to be great to be fun.

have to agree the game launched 70% finished and broken they will not put resources into finishing the missing/promised/half developed features IF their already starting to push DLC...Its like saying its broken yeah but dont look at that SEE FREE DLC!

I ask you again. How did you find the game before it was released? Was it enjoyable, was it what was expected? Or you'll simply point fingers at me not knowing everything and keep quite? Now i want my upvotes back!!!

You were right, cyberpunk isnt a masterpiece, but it isnt a mediocre game, it is sitting at a really good game for me with evident issues like AI and bugs and glitches, perfomance could be a little bit better tho.

i indeed dislike CDPR, but people jumping in conclusion the game would be master piece as TW3 needs to wait a bit. Yes the game might be better than most released games in 2020, but just dont jump in conclusion there won't be any problems inside the game like most people thought!

all i dislike is overhyped games like cyberpunk 2077 and people thinking the game will be 100% perfect. All i was saying was my dislikes and the game won't be perfect, but since its CDPR people jump in conclusion and starts to dislike people who dont support their opinion.

i give an example. .The Division 1 made by ubisft and TD2 too.. I really liked TD1 game story, quests, side quests, the loot system and the PVE elements. Once TD2 i got dissapointed about getting free DLC"s since i purchased the ultimate edition or however they're called. Later they release a new dlc that cost 30$ which mind blows me and i stop playing the game cuz i feel betrayed

Also they said free dlcs but nothing was free. However as for optimisation goes for TD2 on my PC is running very poorly and i stopped playing it shortly after i bought it. Now i purchased that DLC and i started playing the game, but i expirience even more crashes than ever. If i've to talk about dissapointments its my way towards TD2. Overall i really like the idea they made with this game.

Yeah i played the division 1 because they were giving it away for free and it is an ok game but becomes tedious and grindy and once you are 25 hrs in the game you have seen everything there is in the game.

Well there's no question they'll fix most of the issues. Just a damn shame things didn't went according to plan, cut content, and a lot of ambition, business doesn't work like that unfortunately. So, they were forced to release the game before being on par with what they really intended.

They deny that there were issues, but it would actually make the dev team seem better if they didn't.

If the game released how it was because of issues, thats an excuse and they can put their hands up and go "we were wrong not to delay it again"
If it released how it was cause it was meant to, that means they just made the game poorly.

Even though I've finished it, I am confident they will fix it and boy will people be all over it and say it's the best thing ever, like W3. CDPR has one baby at a time so that's why I believe they will take care of CP as good as the past ones.

Pretty sure thats not how reputation works most people discovered CDPR´s TW3(myself included) after it had gotten 30 patches and 2 huge expansions. The Cyberpunk 2077 moto was "Launched when its finished" what ever the F happened to that. It takes years to gain a good reputation but minutes to ruin it and thats exacly what happened.

Reputation is good, but in the end I don't love or hate CDPR, I just love W3 and that game was eventually fixed so I got my hopes up for this one as well. I play the product not the company.
