An alleged developer of Cyberpunk 2077, who wants to remain anonymous, stated that the development of the Action RPG had to remove some content in order to meet the release date. This content should be submitted with DLCs.
Is cyberpunk going to be the game that was planned?
According to the alleged developer, the management of CD Projekt Red is said to have listened too much to investors who interfered in the development of the action RPG. But by June 2021, the team wants to bring the game to the status that was originally planned. The first two major updates should appear by mid-March. The major updates will supposedly rewrite parts of the game code, especially the one for the PS4 and Xbox One versions. In addition, some developers seem to be planning to leave CD Projekt Red.
With DLCs slated for release by June 2021, much of the content that was cut for the timely release will be brought back into the game. Allegedly around 50,000 lines of dialogue and complete quests are missing, with which the management was not satisfied, and which have been revised and rewritten more than a dozen times. In addition, there should have been a complete, extensive sequence in the game that played below Night City. There should also be a sewer system. It is unclear whether these will come back.
Also, according to the alleged developer, Keanu Reeves was not the first choice to cast Johnny Silverhand. The character was planned much cooler and crazier, so actor Cillian Murphy was the model. In addition, there was an AI, which simulated gang wars in the city and there should be content about drug abuse in children, as well as quests about priests and the player should take the position of a Max Tac officer to investigate cases of cyber psychosis. Entire story arcs had to be deleted. The hero would have been able to ride taxis and taxi drivers would have spoken to him and even offered quests.
In addition, the alleged developer gives an indication of what happened to the police officers. Because in a crime these suddenly appear out of nowhere and just as suddenly disappear again. Allegedly there should have been an AI with pathfinding, which even worked but broke shortly before the game was released. The developers are probably about to restore them.
If all of this is correct, we can expect very large updates and patches as well as DLCs for Cyberpunk 2077 by June 2021, which will make the game what was originally planned. But it cannot be said whether all of this is correct.
