Cyberpunk 2077 launched to a plethora of bugs and failed to deliver on the promises made pre-release. The launch was such a surprise that Sony even delisted the game shortly after its release from the PlayStation Store. Since then, numerous patches have gone live to correct the state of the game and make it more in line with the expectations put forth by CD Projekt RED, but a lot of those frustrations early on are coming roaring back following a leaked internal video montaging all of the glitches that this game offers. It also shows off running footage of the game’s protagonist taking to the streets of Night City in third-person, a perspective that the community was very sad to see left on the cutting room floor.
The video was allegedly created by the QA team at the Polish studio and surfaced in a tweet from CDPR dev Slave Lukyanenka. The tweet has since been deleted, but the internet – as unfortunate as it is sometimes – is forever. The video in question showcases a “composition of bug materials” that have been compiled through the years. T-poses galore were only the tip of the iceberg in the series of videos that have been archived on Reddit from a post over on 4Chan:
There is another video of Cyberpunk 2077 running in third-person, though that too has also been taken down. In case it comes back up, you can find that link here.
If going through the archives in the above Reddit post, there is a NSFW disclaimer that we do need to add. One of the video is literally just a plethora of penises and teabagging of said … um, genitalia. With the chorus of Hallelujah playing in the background, the montage honestly just plays out like a giant meme and not something from the studio, but it is what it is.
It is important to note that the montage itself isn’t as damning as many are imagining. Bugs, severe bugs, during development is nothing new and nothing specific to just CD Projekt RED. Even compilation videos made to make light of said bugs is nothing new. That being said, the launch of Cyberpunk 2077 is among the worst in recent gaming history. From the performance of the game itself on last-gen consoles to the lies that were later revealed as part of the studio’s marketing (including falsely presenting gameplay footage and hefty restrictions placed on reviewers), the montages couldn’t have come at a worse time with the company working hard at making things right. Doubly so with the ongoing lawsuits surrounding the game and ongoing Polish investigations.
