Cyberpunk 2077 developers receive death threats from angry fans after delay
CD Projekt RED has delayed Cyberpunk 2077 for what is hopefully the very last time, prompting an inevitable backlash from expectant fans and, of course, death threats.
“I understand you're feeling angry, disappointed and want to voice your opinion about it,” said senior game designer Andrzej Zawadzki. “However, sending death threats to the developers is absolutely unacceptable and just wrong. We are people, just like you.”
In the dark: CD Projekt RED had earlier been adamant that Cyberpunk 2077 would see no further delays, and only the day before the delay was announced the official Cyberpunk 2077 twitter account assured a fan that the game would come out on November 19th.
Last minute: “Long story short: CP Twitter (and therefore our studio – as it's an official channel) did not lie on purpose,” said Fabian Mario Dohla, adding that it’s “almost impossible to tell every employee beforehand, mainly because of legal reasons.” The new release date is December 10th.
