Look. It isn’t significantly egregious to be laughing at your personal sport’s bugs earlier than launch. Video games—particularly large, sophisticated, triple-A video games—are sometimes profoundly damaged proper up till the final minute, and I’ve a number of hilarious examples from my very own time working QA on a blockbuster sport.
CDPR continues to be working to proper Cyberpunk 2077’s points, with half the studio supposedly engaged on fixing the ailing RPG. The sport additionally has a new sport director in Gabriel Amatangelo, who has taken over tasks from studio head Adam Badowski.
Cyberpunk’s multiplayer launch has additionally largely been put aside, and the studio is quietly starting work on a brand new triple-A RPG. Do not anticipate to listen to something about that for a while, although—after the CP2077 debacle, CD Projekt would not appear eager on revealing one other sport years forward of launch.
