According to Bloomberg’s report, the CD Projekt Red development team knew that Cyberpunk 2077 wasn’t ready to launch.

The bad news continues for Cyberpunk 2077 after a day that’s seen Microsoft, Sony, and even the publisher, itself, offer fans no-questions-asked refunds of the game.

Now, Bloomberg is reporting that the development team knew that the game wasn’t ready to release and was pushed to do so by management at the company.

During an internal meeting, the development team aired their grievances with the board, who were responsible for the harsh work hours leading up to the game’s release, along with the forced launch of the game in an unfinished state.

According to the Bloomberg article, one employee even highlighted the irony of making “a game about corporate exploitation while expecting that their employees work overtime.”

This meeting preceded the agreement with Sony to remove Cyberpunk 2077 from the PlayStation digital store, which was announced on Friday morning.

A massive amount of the blame for the state of Cyberpunk appears to be at the directors’ feet. The deadlines were unrealistic and, according to reports, the developers needed a lot more time.

CD Projekt Red delays Cyberpunk 2077 DLCs to work on bug fixes

CD Projekt Red has delayed the free DLC releases for Cyberpunk 2077 in order to work on the console ports and several updates.

CD Projekt Red has released a statement about the future of their game, Cyberpunk 2077.

It’s no secret that the release of Cyberpunk 2077 has been a disaster for the team over at CD Projekt Red, with the game running horribly on older hardware generations, leading to massive requests for refunds. This ultimately led to PlayStation de-listing the game from the store, which quickly became a PR nightmare.

Fast-forwarding to the present, CD Projekt Red has finally released a public statement regarding the future of the game and has also laid the pathway for the future patches and free DLC releases for the game.

Currently, CD Projekt Red plans two large patches for the release, with the first dropping within 10 days of January 13. The second patch will be more significant than the first and will release in the weeks following the first patch. There will still be more updates after these large patches, but these are the first planned of many.

Throughout 2021, CD Projekt Red plans to release free DLC for the game, alongside the free next-gen console update, which is planned to drop in the second half of the year. Unfortunately, this means users who have an Xbox Series X or a PlayStation 5 will have to wait a bit before a more advanced version of the game releases.

PC players can expect further bug fixes, crash fixes, and hopefully optimization updates to make the game run smoother on legacy hardware. While PC is still an important release for CD Projekt Red, the console versions definitely have more issues, and will most likely be a large focus of the upcoming updates.

Alongside this announcement, CD Projekt Red has made a commitment to players for the road ahead.

Cyberpunk 2077’s plans have been unchanged, and CD Projekt Red plans on supporting the game for years to come, just like The Witcher 3. You can watch the full statement in the YouTube video above.

CD Projekt Red's Cyberpunk 2077

It’s officially confirmed that Cyberpunk 2077 will receive brand new DLC content thanks to comments made by CD Projekt Red. Here’s everything we know so far, from the release date, to what will be in the expansion.

Cyberpunk 2077 was arguably the most anticipated video game of all-time. The hype was enormous and it’s no secret that it had a messy release. CD Projekt Red’s latest title was plagued with game-breaking bugs on all platforms, which led to fans getting refunds.

Despite this, the game shattered records and its social statistics were incredible – making it the first Steam title to crack 1 million concurrent players. Now the devs have announced new DLC for the game, and here’s everything we know about it, both confirmed and rumored.

When will the Cyberpunk DLC be released?

While the exact release date for the Cyberpunk DLC hasn’t been confirmed by the devs, we do know that it is planned to come out “in early 2021.” This was confirmed on Cyberpunk 2077’s official website and we might see it at some point in the next few months.

It’s possible that CD Projekt Red is going the same route they went with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. They released the DLC across many different months throughout the year, so we might see something similar in 2021.

The devs will probably prioritize fixing the game’s bugs in the two big patches that they announced, so they might release the expansion afterwards. The site tells fans to stay tuned for more information, so as soon as they announce an official date, we’ll be sure to update this guide.

Will the Cyberpunk DLC be free?

If you’re not looking to spend a lot on new content, then you’re in luck. A few of the DLC packs for Cyberpunk 2077 will be completely free of cost. These will probably consist of new cosmetic items, tech, and mini-quests.

There will also be paid DLC which will expand upon the world of Cyberpunk 2077 in a major way and will likely consist of large-scale missions and fully constructed narratives.

What will be in the Cyberpunk 2077 DLC?

The official premise of the DLC hasn’t been confirmed yet, but we can piece together bits and pieces of information from the webpage. It shows clips from the story featuring Judy and Johnny Silverhand, which might imply that the expansion will revolve around them.

Rock Paper Shotgun spotted a clue about the DLC’s content in one of the game’s trailers. They stated that the free DLC will have a “bunch of cool stuff that’ll inject even more life into the world of the dark future.”

They also mentioned that the paid DLC will “take you even deeper into the world of Cyberpunk 2077, offering substantial, story-driven content that’ll give you tough choices to make through impactful narratives that you won’t soon forget.”

A leak from GameFAQs points to cut missions, items, and dialogue being added to the game in the expansion packs. This hasn’t been officially confirmed, but it does sound exciting.

That covers everything we know so far about the planned DLC for the game. Once we learn more information from the developers then we’ll be sure to update you. Cyberpunk 2077 is available on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Google Stadia.

Cyberpunk 2077 is no stranger to secrets and Easter Eggs, which is why it’s no surprise to hear that the game contains a tribute to Mortal Kombat hidden amidst the death and destruction of Night City.

It’s been hard to overlook the deserved criticism that Cyberpunk 2077 has been receiving over the last few weeks. The game’s countless issues across multiple platforms have led to widespread condemnation and even legal action.

But at the heart of CD Projekt Red’s Cyberpunk 2077 is a truly outstanding game that flourishes in the art of storytelling and delivering terrific missions, characters, and gameplay. Night City is a vibrant, beaming sight of lights and pools of blood. But it also contains some amazing secrets, with its most recent secret being yet another cool touch to add to the game’s positives.

One of the standout aspects of Cyberpunk 2077 is the sprawling open-world it’s managed to create. Night City is fascinating, deep, and there’s always something going on in it. Whether it’s a gang dispute, the random events of a normal person’s life, or even a 1 vs 1 argument that turns ugly in a hurry – Night City is lively.

In order to truly get the most of this chaotic cesspool of criminals and Corpos, you need to be exploring more than Indiana Jones with a map. Numerous secrets have already been found around Cyberpunk’s world, and a new one has been discovered.

Mortal Kombat is one of the most beloved and critically acclaimed beat ’em ups of all-time. It’s had a huge bearing on the gaming landscape – especially in terms of the brutal nature of its content. It would be right at home in Cyberpunk, and aptly enough, it now is.

Here are the steps you’ll need to follow to unlock the secret Mortal Kombat statue:

  1. Progress through Cyberpunk 2077’s main missions until you encounter Panam
  2. You will then meet a character called Mitch, through Panam
  3. Accept the “Fly Me Away” side quest
  4. Complete the side quest
  5. Part of your reward for the quest will include the “Yellow Jacket Warrior” statue

If you inspect the statue quite closely, you’ll realize that the character bears a striking resemblance to Mortal Kombat’s legendary mascot – Scorpion.

He’s obviously been given a slight Cyberpunk makeover as he’s missing his classic spear and seems to be boasting some new augmentations.

The statue won’t give you any additional ability points or provide you with any discernible buffs, but it’s a hell of a cool collectible to retain and look at.
