Cyberpunk 2077 had a rough start as a video game, but we’re told it’s a bit more respected now than it was on launch thanks to repeated patches and updates. It wasn’t a game CD Projekt Red could go back on anyway, having put all their eggs in that basket. It’s fared better on television with an anime based on the game, Cyberpunk Edgerunners, becoming a Netflix hit.

After years of massive hype, Cyberpunk 2077 was pretty much a flop, and the blame for that entirely belongs to CD Projekt red, the company that made it. The tumultuous development history is well-known at this point, with multiple versions of the game being scrapped until one was hastily put together under heavy and abusive crunch conditions. The finished game was a buggy, malfunctioning Hindenburg. That, however, isn’t stopping CDPR from building their next zeppelin!
Everyone knows the truth now: the PS4 version of Cyberpunk 2077 is a buggy mess and the XBox One version isn’t running so well either. One month ago folks were begging to play the game for just a minute; now they want refunds. Today Sony took the unprecedented step of removing Cyberpunk from the PS Store and doing just that. Microsoft and other merchants soon followed. As of this writing most major retailers are allowing you to return a physical opened copy, something they almost never allow in any other instance.
The good news is we got another Cyberpunk 2077 trailer today. The bad news is, it doesn’t market the game quite as well as the last few have.
If all had gone well, we would have been playing CD Projekt Red’s Cyberpunk 2077 on April 16. But a delay forced the game into September 17…which doesn’t seem so far away NOW; we’ll get to immerse ourselves in CDPR’s latest the moment fall rolls around….oh wait.
Good news for those with Apple devices….Gwent is coming to Apple stuff! An iOS version of the game is now in development, and you could start playing as early as next week.
Gwent, the card game from The Witcher series that spun off into its own separate game, has now received its third expansion. CD Projekt Red originally announced Iron Judgment would be live October 3, but has decided to release it a day early.

Back at E3, CD Projekt Red let members of the press play through a special demo of their hotly anticipated Cyberpunk 2077 behind closed doors. What they saw in there was classified and never revealed to the public…until today! Sort of. Just in time for PAX West, CDPR has released a truncated video of the E3 demo, chock full of gameplay tidbits previously unknown.
Geralt and his friends are getting shrunk down to Switch size this fall: CD Projekt Red and Saber Interactive (the ones making this version of the game) have confirmed The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Complete Edition will become available for Nintendo’s handheld October 15.
Just before Gamescom opened, Google announced a slate of upcoming titles for their Stadia video game streaming service, and confirmed at last that 2020’s most anticipated title, Cyberpunk 2077, would be on that service. The problem is, it won’t be immediate.
When you first boot up Cyberpunk 2077 next year on your game-playing device of choice, you’ll be hearing the frenetic musics of the game’s in-house rock band, SAMURAI, frequently in the soundtrack of its world. That band is actually Swedish punk rock group Refused, and fortunately for us, they did NOT refuse the role in Cyberpunk.
