When asked why Cyberpunk 2077 doesn’t have police chases on a recent live stream, director Pawel Sasko explained that not all open-world games have police chases. “First of all, not every open-world game, right? Because, like, I don’t think that Sonic, the chase game, will have it, or Elden Ring, the open-world game will have it. Second thing is, the thing is that … because of various limitations, you know, that we had, and in this specific case, it was just a technical limitation … We simply didn’t manage to make it.”
CD Projekt has recently settled its lawsuit with investors who sued Cyberpunk 2077 for its terrible launch by paying them $1,850,000. The occurrence of technical issues and lack of game mechanics have caused the company a great deal already and are still hurting the company’s fame as the community continues to question the quality of the game.
This isn’t the first time Cyberpunk 2077 was put on the stake for questioning. The game had a pretty rough launch. The reviews were good on the launch day but soon gave way to complaints and criticisms. The code was obviously incomplete as players ran into weird glitches and crashes. Sony had to remove Cyberpunk 2077 from its PlayStation store once and offer full refunds to those who had purchased the game.
Cyberpunk 2077 actor Keanu Reeves also denied ever playing the game himself, contradicting what CD Projekt claimed before. CD Projekt president and joint-CEO Adam Kiciński said in last November: “He played the game, but as far as I know he hasn’t finished it yet. But definitely, he played the game and he loves it.” However, in a recent interview regarding The Matrix Awakens, Keanu Reeves replied with “no” when asked if he ever plays video games, including Cyberpunk 2077. It has been a year since Cyberpunk‘s release, but no one knows how much longer the company will still need to suffer from its immature release.
