Since release, Cyberpunk 2077 has failed to meet the lofty promises set by its own marketing. Glitches, bugs, and unplayable sequences especially on base PS4 and Xbox One consoles plagued the game at launch and continue to manifest themselves. Although the company has promised that it would work to fix the game’s problems, their promises were delayed because of hacks into their systems.
Leaks from the hack have slowly come out, but one such leak may spark more controversy for the game and company. As reported by VGC, an internal montage of the bugs of glitches from Cyberpunk 2077 have made their way onto the internet. The footage shows many of the same issues that gamers have noted in their playthrough. It is unclear exactly what this edited compilation is for – VGC says it could have been made “with the intention of being included as bonus material for the final game.”
It should be noted that in an apology video released by CD Projekt soon after the game’s release, company co-founder Marcin Iwiński stated that the company’s “testing did not show a big part of the issues [gamer’s] experienced while playing the game.”
While these videos do not inherently disprove Iwiński’s claims – after all, these montages could have been made with footage from gameplay earlier in the development stages – it does not help make the Cyberpunk 2077 situation look any better.
The continuous bad publicity and highlighting of the company’s mismanagement of Cyberpunk 2077 does not to CD Projekt or the game any favors. It is unclear that the game will ever reach its promises, but at this point, it may be too late for many gamers who have already lost trust.
