Cyberpunk 2077 Players Have ‘Already Forgotten' The Game

Cyberpunk 2077 Players Have ‘Already Forgotten' The Game

Although CD Projekt Red is trying to turn things around and give Cyberpunk 2077 the attention it was always promised, there are continued complaints that it's too little, too late, for the troubled sci-fi slugger. Following a slew of delays prior to release, there's been a lacklustre launch with graphic and glitch complaints, hacking drama, and delayed updates. With the whole game caught in a PR nightmare, there are now accusations that players have already forgotten about Cyberpunk 2077

Looking back at the history of CD Projekt Red, it was the talk of the town thanks to its work on The Witcher games. In particular, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is held as a jewel in the developer's crown six years after it was first released. Sadly, critics aren't sure we'll even be remembering Cyberpunk 2077 by the time 2021 has come to an end, let alone in 2026. 

 

Why are people saying Cyberpunk 2077 will be forgotten?

Posting on Reddit, u/DannyM2 shared a lengthy op-ed about where they think Cyberpunk 2077 is heading. As well as describing the troubled title as "meh", they went on to explain how The Witcher 3 still has a place in many people's hearts, while things aren't looking good for Cyberpunk 2077's lasting legacy. They wrote, "It’s such a shame. Coming from the people that made the Witcher 3, I always kept thinking about that game even today and replayed it countless times. A cyberpunk setting should have drawn me into it way more than the Witcher did". 

The original post blew up to earn 20.8k upvotes, with many echoing these sentiments. One disgruntled Cyberpunk 2077 player said, "I haven't deleted the game from my hard drive because despite this garbage fire of a game, Witcher 3 remains one of my all time favorite games and I still foolishly cling to the idea that CDPR can dig themselves out of their self imposed hole of rotten potential. But every time I see an update it's another disappointment, another embarrassment. The rotten hole has only gotten deeper and considerably darker since release".

Another added, "For me the marketing team did a a better job of highlighting the cooler aspects of the cyberpunk 2020/2077 world but the Dev team fell way short of this", while a third concluded, "For me the marketing team did a a better job of highlighting the cooler aspects of the cyberpunk 2020/2077 world but the Dev team fell way short of this". 

 

Will Cyberpunk 2077 be forgotten?

There's an argument that The Witcher 3 has much more a replayability factor. This was undoubtedly helped by the fact The Witcher 3 had 16 DLCs. Back then, CD Projekt Red rattled through the post-release content and even released the Game of Year Edition in 2016 that included the Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine expansions. To get so much done in the space of a year was impressive, but with Cyberpunk 2077 already being massively behind in just three months, it's not a great sign.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was a rarity in terms of gaming as a nearly flawless outing. With this in mind, it's no surprise there was also the Nintendo Switch release in 2019 and planned next-gen remasters for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S. CD Projekt Red does have a massive Cyberpunk 2077 multiplayer planned as a sort of standalone, but given the delays we've already seen, who knows when that will ever release? Even though CD Projekt Red has promised "at least" as many DLCs as The Witcher 3, it looks like we'll be a long way off being able to sit down for an Ultimate Edition that shows off the fully finished version CDPR promised all those years ago.
