So, what does this mean for Cyberpunk 2077?

Over on Twitter, optimistic fans have gotten to speculating that it means Cyberpunk is already finished. Others wonder if it spells bad news for the game…

Over on Reddit, a user by the name of sleepyhead062 shared what’s apparently a response from the Cyberpunk discord, saying: “Regarding that news there is no need to panic or worry about it is normal in that industry that people will come and leave. Project is not in any kind of danger. Sebastian is great guy, so also try to not call him traitor cos he truly isn’t.”

Whether this truly is a statement from the devs is not known. At the time of writing, CD Projekt Red has not issued a formal statement on the confusion.

Do you think Cyberpunk could already be finished?
