Original: According to an anonymous employee at CD Projekt RED that was later uploaded to the GameFAQs message board, there are rumblings that Cyberpunk 2077 could receive what is described as a “No Man’s Sky” style comeback in June 2021.
The anonymous user stated:
CDPR hurt themselves to keep investors safe and sound. Now devs are hearing plans of a “No Man’s Sky” style comeback due to late June. The first two patches should come out mid-March, despite what’s been said by top execs. There will be major departures from the studio in the coming months. Dev morale is on an all time down and Sony is roasting our asses due to the gigantic volume of refund requests. There will be a meeting today with Sony execs to figure out a way to compensate players threatening with legal action. Sony Japan is specially furious.
The user also claimed that a majority of the code is getting a complete overhaul and asks that those who are still considering asking for a refund do so. Stating:
That’s already done and ready since February. It didn’t get implemented because of a major UI bug that is still present in the retail copies. If you open your .dat files you’ll find a lot of scrapped content still in there.
If you want a refund, please ask for it. It positively impacts us as devs, because we’ve warned the leads a MILLION times about that kind of s***. Most cosmetic overhauls should be ready by the 2nd big update, hopefully.
