Cyberpunk 2077 devs knew the game was buggy, new leaks show
It’s not unusual for creators to poke fun at themselves for the flaws of their creations. That seemed to be the case during the development of Cyberpunk 2077, as new leaks show that the developers at CDPR seemed to have made their own “gag reels” of bug compilations. As spotted by Video Games Chronicle, hackers leaked videos of in-game footage, depicting often humorous scenarios made in the game by the devs. The devs seemed to be having fun in making these, and to be fair, a lot of them are funny.
While most of these kinds of videos don’t see the light of day, hackers decided to release the footage after CDPR refused to give in to their monetary demands. CDPR had been hard at work trying to trace and take down these hackers, to no avail. While usually, these videos are just senseless fun and are overall inoffensive and harmless, the circumstances revolving around Cyberpunk 2077 put the company in an even worse light. Upon releasing the game in a very buggy state, CDPR claimed that their quality assurance testing of the game didn’t catch many of the game’s bugs. The claim suggests that CDPR wasn’t aware of the full scale of the game’s bugginess. Hence, it appeals to players to look past the game’s issues as the developers tried to fix the bugs.
However, that doesn’t seem to be the case anymore. With these leaked footages, it’s clear that the game’s developers fully understood what else was lacking in the game.
In any case, CDPR has already committed to trying to fix the game. They still vow to make the game reach its full potential and deliver on its promise. We hope that they can do so before Cyberpunk 2077 gets buried into obscurity.
