Cyberpunk 2077 director thanks fans for thousands of positive reviews

Instances of comebacks from failure are not uncommon in the gaming world. Whether it's a disastrous launch, missing features, or poor gaming performance, many games initially disappoint but manage to regain fans' favor through developers' efforts.

Notably, we can mention No Man's Sky by Hello Games, an action-adventure survival game that had a disastrous launch several years ago. However, due to the developers' actions, improving the game and releasing free DLCs, No Man's Sky has now regained fans' affection.

Cyberpunk 2077 also faced a similar situation. Developed by CD Projekt Red, Cyberpunk 2077 is an action role-playing video game. It was first announced in May 2012 and garnered significant attention from gamers. After more than eight years of development, fans had high expectations for the game's quality. Cyberpunk 2077 even set pre-order records on Steam.

Cyberpunk 2077 was one of the biggest launches in video game history, but its debut was a huge disappointment. It lacked content and had performance issues. Cyberpunk 2077 was widely criticized for bugs, especially in the console versions, which suffered from performance problems. The release was so disastrous that CD Projekt investors considered suing the studio for "materially misleading information," and Sony even removed the game from the PlayStation Store until it was fixed.

The Comeback

In response to negative feedback from the community, CD Projekt Red did not waver and set to work improving Cyberpunk 2077. They released the first major update on January 22, 2021, and another major update on August 17, 2021. CD Projekt Red also collaborated with animation studio Trigger to release the anime Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, which received critical acclaim, with praise directed at its characters, animation, and worldbuilding. These updates and the anime significantly contributed to regaining the gaming community's affection.

Now, following the release of Cyberpunk 2077's newest acclaimed Phantom Liberty DLC, associate game director Paweł Sasko has thanked the game's community for the thousands of positive Steam reviews it has received in the last 30 days.

This is a well-deserved success for CD Projekt Red. They have regained fans' affection through their dedication, efforts, and determination to improve their game. The future of Cyberpunk 2077 now looks very promising, especially with the upcoming sequel codenamed "Orion" which was just revealed.
