The fact that Cyberpunk 2077 has received its fair share of criticism since its release has not gone unnoticed, and there have been many chances. It has been sawn, criticized and apologized for and poodled about every other time. Long regarded by gamers as one of the few developers you could actually trust, the Polish studio suddenly woke up one morning after release and realized they were now like any other AAA studio, with broken promises, poor working conditions, outright lies and greedy suits pushing the release of a product that was far from finished. Heads rolled and the clean-up began, but it’s always difficult to repair a tarnished reputation. Especially when you have lied to your fans right up to their faces.
However, there is not much else you can do but try to fix what is broken and hope people forget and you have to give the studio that after all. That they have not taken the task lightly, but have worked hard to fix their product and now that work is also beginning to bear fruit. The game is growing in popularity and on Steam the number of players has skyrocketed. Director Paweł Sasko is humbled by this second chance he feels they have now been given and thanks everyone who has taken CD Projekt Red’s mercy with a crying emoji on Twitter. Late shall the sinner wake up as they say but it seems that there is actually a future for Cyberpunk 2077 after all.
