Here’s the primary rule of studying about videogames on the web: don’t imagine random posters on the GameFAQs boards. Posters there have now graduated from telling you how you can completely get the Triforce in Ocarina of Time to now posing as recreation builders desperate to air their employer’s soiled laundry. One cockamamie rant from a supposed Cyberpunk 2077 dev has now gained sufficient traction that CD Projekt Red itself has stepped in to say it’s not true.

“Normally we don’t comment on rumors,” CD Projekt says in a tweet, “but this time we wanted to make an exception as this story is simply not true.” Normally I’d clarify what the studio’s responding to earlier than quoting their response, however I feel it’s higher right here to say that that is basically fanfiction earlier than I even get into it.

In broad strokes, the ‘developer’ rant suggests that CDPR reduce an entire lot of content material and shipped early to make the 2020 launch date and please traders. The recreation’s set to make a “No Man’s Sky-style comeback”, although the promised January and February patches have been pushed again to March. “Dev morale is on an all time down and Sony is roasting our asses”, the GameFAQs publish says. “Sony Japan is specially furious.”

The weirder half within the message is an apart about Keanu Reeves’ function within the recreation: “Our original Johnny was way cooler and sounded like a maniac. Think Foltest on crack.” The fictional dev provides that “Our original Johnny was heavily inspired by David Hayter’s Solid Snake from the first MGS and believe it or not, Cillian Murphy.”

The message concludes by promising how good the upcoming DLC and restored content material will likely be. “You guys should have the complete game by the end of next year, if everything goes well.”

I’ve no doubts that Cyberpunk 2077 will turn into a a lot better recreation within the months to return, however maybe not exactly as this GameFAQs consumer predicts. There are different RPG games for you to get pleasure from whereas awaiting additional Cyberpunk patches, although maybe none set in so vibrant a fantasy world as this specific rumour.
