Cyberpunk 2077 has had problems since its release in 2020, leading to user complaints and even investor lawsuits.
Imagine, it looks like Cyberpunk 2077 is slowly getting finished! Ok, I know it’s been almost a year since it was released… In any case, the ratings on Steam have improved significantly, and the threat of investor lawsuits has now been averted, at the cost of some money, but without further dilemmas. Beyond all this, CD Projekt continues to look forward to enhancing the cyberpunk experience, but that doesn’t mean they don’t look back from time to time.
“There were simply technical reasons that prevented us from including [police chases].”- Pawel Sasko
That’s exactly what happened in a recent live stream of quest director Pawel Sasko playing Cyberpunk 2077 while answering questions from users. Here, a player asked about the lack of police chases, a detail that would look great on the streets of Night City. However, CD Projekt has never shied away from this possibility and has admitted that this idea was not realised due to technical limitations.
“We’ve talked about it several times in the past streams because it was an important thing for us. It’s about limitations, and in this particular case, we’re just talking about technical limitations,” Sasko explains, “It’s not that we didn’t do it because we didn’t want to; there were just technical reasons that prevented us from developing it.”
Of course, it’s hard to forget the case of Cyberpunk 2077. Because, despite all the bugs and complaints, CD Projekt RED is still working on the game and looks to the future with patches, updates and free DLC.
