In my view, Cyberpunk 2077 isn’t fairly the catastrophe some have urged. The game is fun. The bugs are fun! The bugs that really, really weren’t enjoyable have been patched. Refunds have been made broadly accessible, and regardless of that refund possibility, the sport sold 13 million copies in just two weeks.
However writer CD Projekt nonetheless has a broken reputation to fix and an investor lawsuit to fight, so I wouldn’t put an excessive amount of inventory within the headline you might need learn right this moment: that we’re all getting free DLC for the sport in early 2021.
It’s doable! And it’s completely what this official website promises. However that promise could also be old-fashioned.
As Engadget points out, the Web Archive’s Wayback Machine reveals that this promise could have been reside on the web the identical day the sport launched — earlier than the outcry started, and undoubtedly earlier than CD Projekt held an emergency convention name on December fifteenth to debate how the corporate would react.
On that decision (PDF transcript), CD Projekt president and co-CEO Adam Kiciński informed traders that it was “too early to evaluate” when the corporate would possibly be capable of launch DLC.
Particularly, he was requested: “How do you’re feeling about your capacity to launch a few DLCs subsequent yr, and, clearly, multiplayer in 2022?” (CD Projekt had beforehand stated that multiplayer would miss 2021.)
The complete reply: “To be sincere, it’s too early to evaluate. In the meanwhile please allow us to deal with the state of affairs, and please allow us to make some extra assessments – that’s nonetheless forward of us; we don’t know but, and we’re now targeted on bettering Cyberpunk. We’ll talk about this early subsequent yr.”
At the moment, we’re anticipating two main patches for the sport in January and February respectively, like the corporate promised on December 13th in its apology post:
Past that, some free DLC would after all be good. Personally, I simply need NPCs that know tips on how to drive.
