For my part, Cyberpunk 2077 isn’t fairly the catastrophe some have steered. The sport is enjoyable. The bugs are enjoyable! The bugs that actually, actually weren’t enjoyable have been patched. Refunds have been made extensively obtainable, and regardless of that refund choice, the sport offered 13 million copies in simply two weeks.
However writer CD Projekt nonetheless has a damaged fame to repair and an investor lawsuit to struggle, so I wouldn’t put an excessive amount of inventory within the headline you may need learn right now: that we’re all getting free DLC for the sport in early 2021.
It’s attainable! And it’s completely what this official web site guarantees. However that promise could also be outdated.
As Engadget factors out, the Web Archive’s Wayback Machine exhibits that this promise could have been dwell 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 instructed buyers that it was “too early to guage” when the corporate would possibly be capable to launch DLC.
Particularly, he was requested: “How do you are feeling about your potential to launch a few DLCs subsequent 12 months, and, clearly, multiplayer in 2022?” (CD Projekt had beforehand mentioned that multiplayer would miss 2021.)
The total reply: “To be trustworthy, it’s too early to guage. In the mean time please allow us to deal with the scenario, and please allow us to make some extra assessments – that’s nonetheless forward of us; we don’t know but, and we’re now centered on enhancing Cyberpunk. We’ll focus on this early subsequent 12 months.”
Presently, 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 in fact be good. Personally, I simply need NPCs that know find out how to drive.
