When the world first saw the teaser for Cyberpunk 2077, no one could believe that such a game could be produced with today’s technology. Well, nine years later the game fell into a wave of hype that was more like a tsunami. Promotions, collaborations, exclusive merch, announcements, gameplay promises …
It all stopped when he finally got out. Keanu Reeves might have been one of the main characters, but there was something else to the John wick star there, too – a problem in the matrix. Well, more than one, actually. Cyberpunk 2077 is more bug-ridden than this Pixar ant movie. Your character poses in a T, naked from the top of your car as you drive. NPCs pass other cars on the road. Physical objects shoot randomly into the stratosphere before falling back to ground level. It’s chaos.
And that doesn’t even count the base console versions for Xbox One and PS4, where the game couldn’t even load without wiping out most of the world. Playing the game on the latest generation consoles is like going to a nightclub at 10 a.m.
CD Projekt Red will surely change things over time, but play Cyberpunk 2077 at launch, it was like finding Keanu Reeves alive in your head before you realize he actually hates you.
