Cyberpunk 2077 - There Are Great Things to Come

The astonishing levels of hype surrounding CD Projekt's upcoming RPG Cyberpunk 2077 have always seemed odd to me. At this point the only things we know about it are the setting and who's making it. It's not exactly enough for me to get excited.

Few share this opinion, however, and ever since the game got announced, a lot of people have been calling Cyberpunk their most anticipated RPG that is surely to revolutionize the entire genre. But now that 5 years have passed since the initial announcement, and we've learned virtually nothing about the actual game, the hype pendulum swings in the opposite direction and people are starting to speculate that something may have gone horribly wrong with Cyberpunk.

To assuage these fears, the folks at CD Projekt have recently put out a statement on the studio morale, and now, GamingBolt has spotted a couple of tweets from CD Projekt's Marcin Przybyłowicz that promise great things, and warn people against trusting everything they read online. Have a look:

The fact that Cyberpunk 2077 is a long, long ways off from release yet (it doesn’t even have a vague release window yet) hasn’t stopped people from being incredibly excited about it, thanks in part to CD Projekt RED’s excellent work on The Witcher trilogy. Even though it might be years before we finally get to play Cyberpunk 2077, people have still been speculating about what the game might be like, and demands for at least little pieces of information on it have been growing.

However, CD Projekt RED have assured fans that there’s great things in store for fans who have been eagerly anticipating more news on the game. CDPR’s Marcin Przybyłowicz‏ recently took to Twitter, and wrote a post in which he mentioned how he’s been getting more and more questions about the studio’s next project. He admitted that while the Polish developers have been taking their time with the game, but requested fans to have patience, assuring them that their are “great things to come”.

Another fan wrote to Przybyłowicz‏ in response, mentioning recent reports of trouble and unrest at the studio, and implied that the development of Cyberpunk 2077 might be going through a few issues. Przybyłowicz‏ responded promptly, saying that you shouldn’t believe everything you read online.
