Cyberpunk 2077 is a Glitchy, Toxic Mess

Cyberpunk 2077 is a futuristic action RPG game made and released by CD Projekt. It was delayed multiple times due to complications, but finally, it was released on December 10, 2020. Unfortunately, when fans received the game, it was a rushed, buggy mess. There are multiple glitches that occur during certain parts of the game, ruining the immersion. Even quite recently, a new bug now occurs during one of the most important scenes of the game. There are also more tamer glitches like clipping through walls and textures not rendering fully. Obviously, fans became furious as they believed they would get a polished game, especially after it being delayed for so long and it being advertised too well. And rightfully so, right? Well, to an outsider it may seem that way. But in reality, it’s more than just a few bad reviews.

“Every single one is being reported. We will not let it go through. Do not treat it lightly. Do not ignore it. It is serious.” explained Andrzej Zawadzki.

Little do people know who aren’t fans of the game that the fandom is completely toxic. There have been reports of fans harassing and even sending death threats to the creators for not pushing out the game sooner. Fans canceled their pre-orders for the game and encouraged others to do the same. This has been expressed the most during the announcement of the game being delayed another three weeks. People seem to forget that there are actual people behind the makings of these games and not just computer-programming robots.

 In a Twitter post, Andrzej Zawadzki states, “I understand you’re feeling angry, disappointed and want to voice your opinion about it. However, sending death threats to developers is absolutely unacceptable and just wrong. We are people, just like you.”.

Even if something you have been looking forward to gets delayed and doesn’t live up to its expectations, it gives you no right to ignore human decency.
