Polish Voice of CP 2077’s Johnny Silverhand is a Retired Witcher
The Polish voice actors playing the main characters of Cyberpunk 2077 were revealed during a panel discussion, which took place during the Festival of Comics and Games. The iconic character of the game, Johnny Silverhand, originally played by Keanu Reeves, will be voiced by an actor who used to play Geralt of Rivia.
Today, Polish fans of comics and video games have learned (and met) the native voice actors who will play the main characters in Cyberpunk 2077. The names were presented during a special panel discussion on the Polish language version of the game, which took place as part of the Comics and Games Festival in Lodz.
Let’s hear some specifics, shall we? The male and female voices of the protagonist will be lent by the creme de la creme of Polish voice actors, who provided voices to major characters in such hit movies as Black Panther, Beauty and the Beast, Frozen or Avengers: Infinity War. The interesting part, however, is the voice of Johnny Silverhand, played by Michal Zebrowski, known to fantasy and video game fans mainly for his role as Geralt of Rivia in the infamous Polish TV series and movie The Witcher. While the script of both was universally hailed as garbage, Zebrowski at least tried to make it work, and is still appreciated for his effort by some parts of the community.
During the panel, Adam Badowski (the game’s director), presented not only the Polish voice cast, but also the secrets of building the game world in the upcoming title. He also revealed that the female character was the first to be written, and that the romance themes were created separately for the male and female versions of V. CD Projekt Red also boasted of a technology that uses sound anylysis to allow for real-time lipsync for each language version. This modern solution was based on neural networks, and is a dedicated proprietary technology developed by the team.
The launch of Cyberpunk 2077 will take place on April 16, 2020. The title will be released on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. A release on the Google Stadia streaming platform is also planned.

Cyberpunk 2077 Will Have Three Different Character Background Options
Easily one of the most anticipated video game titles to release in the upcoming year is CD Projekt Red’s Cyberpunk 2077. The creators behind The Witcher series is hard at work with their next big open world RPG title that will take place in a futuristic world where humans are intertwined with augmentations. Since its announcement, there has been plenty of gamers worldwide looking for anything new regarding the title as we inch closer and closer to its release date. E3 2019 brought out a brand new trailer along with the release date for when we can actually get our hands on a copy of the game, but it was only after E3 ended that we’re learning about the game presenting players with three character background options.
Speaking with VG247, the lead quest designer for the game, Pawel Sasko, spoke about the game prologue options. Players will be able to decide the background of their character prior to starting the campaign. The game development team are calling these origins “lifepaths” and there will be a total of three. They are the Nomad, Corpo and Street Kid. Each of these lifepaths will bring players to a particular area starting point in the game and will give players some background to their protagonist.
“The player in Cyberpunk 2077 can create a custom character that has one of three origin stories, that we call lifepaths: you can be Nomad, Corpo or Street Kid. Each of that Lifepaths has a different starting location and story background that are strongly connected with the origin story. Anything more I say can reveal too much from the story, so I will leave it like this.”
Unfortunately, that is all Pawel was willing to share regarding the prologue for the title. In other news, Cyberpunk 2077 was confirmed to release on April 16, 2020, for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and lastly, the PC platforms. If you have yet to check out the latest trailer for the game which was shown during E3 2019 then feel free to check out the embed posted above.
Cyberpunk 2077 Character Life Path Background Guide
When it comes to Character Creation, Cyberpunk 2077 works only with the most important aspects of a player’s character to define the experience. So, don’t rush in thinking that the choice of a Life Path for your character is minor or merely cosmetic.
Warning: This guide is based on the in-progress information available before the official release of the game. The guide will be updated as more information becomes available.
On the contrary, this choice will determine a major part of your initial gameplay and your dialog choices throughout the game. This choice will mark your starting location, your initial faction alliance, and will offer you some extra opportunities within quests and important story junctures. You will be familiar with different people, will be involved with a different faction, and will even be set for completing the main story in a certain way (although you can switch your alliances at any moment).
Want to know what you are in for? We will guide you through the available options and how they will affect your Cyberpunk 2077 experience.
“Roaming the Badlands, looting scrapyards, raiding fuel depots – life on the road wasn’t easy. But growing up in a nomad clan has its perks. Honesty, integrity, and a love of freedom – qualities that few in Night City possess, and no amount of money can buy.”
We don’t know much about the Nomad Life Path in Cyberpunk 2077 yet, but what we do know is that your questing and exploration will begin in the Badlands, the territory on the outskirts of the Night City. Life is particularly hard off the grid, but you managed to make it within your “tribe,” living in cats and doing various jobs for fixers and the city folk. Unlike the two other factions, you will not be affiliated with the major conflict at hand right away, but you will have some unique associations under your belt.
“They say if you wanna understand the streets, you gotta live ’em. Gongs, fixers, dolls, small-time pushers – you were raised by them all. Down here the law of the jungle dictates the weak serve the strong – the only law in Night City you have yet to break.”
The Street Kid Life Path will be all about the Streets. We don’t know too much about this Background yet, but based on what we know about the Night City you will most likely be intuitively familiar with the city life, its fixers, its laws, gangs, and its secrets, which will come in handy quite often as you progress through the game. Even before meeting Silverhand you will know who the big heads are, who the Corporate people are, and know to distrust them and their methods.
“Few leave the corporate world with their loves – fewer still with their souls intact. You’ve been there – you’ve bent the rules, exploited secrets, and weaponized information. There’s no such thing as a fair game, only winners and losers.”
Even though we don’t know everything about how the Corporate Life Path will function in the final version of Cyberpunk 2077, we get an example of what Corpos can be like in the original demo for the game. We meet an agent from the megacorporation known as Militech. Her exact view on how the Night City hierarchy works is, “only the Corp gets what it wants.” Yet, it’s reasonable to expect that in the war that Corporates, NetWatch, VooDoo Boys, and others wage over the control of Cyberspace this assumption will get a little more complicated.

Cyberpunk 2077 Won’t Have a Beta
Cyberpunk 2077 developer CD Projekt RED reveals that its hotly anticipated sci-fi RPG will not have a beta testing period, much to the disappointment of fans.
Cyberpunk 2077 was announced more than five years ago, and a lot of fans of the RPG and its developer are eager to play it. Naturally, many would love to take part in a Cyberpunk 2077 beta to help test and improve the game, or just to play it a bit earlier.
However, developer CD Projekt RED has now revealed that it has no plans for a Cyberpunk 2077 beta. On Twitter, a fan asked the official Cyberpunk 2077 account if testing will be open or closed when the game enters alpha or beta. The account said that the game’s development team has “no plans for closed/open beta.”
Some fans will be disappointed by the news, and not just because it means they won’t get to play the game before it is officially released to everyone. Many will have hoped that CD Projekt RED planned to host a Cyberpunk 2077 beta in order to ensure that the game runs as smoothly as possible. Cyberpunk 2077 will feature a massive open-world, and that means the development team may not have been able to scour every inch of it in order to sniff out, locate, and fix any bugs.
The game also features lots of moving parts, both figuratively and literally. From the many choices that players can have which affect the narrative to NPC reactions to the player character’s movements, Cyberpunk 2077 will be full of smaller features.
We have no plans for closed/open beta.
The more components brought to Cyberpunk 2077 means that there will be more scrutiny required of the development team to test and predict what may go wrong. It may be able to guess and fix an issue of dialogue not loading properly, but without players stress testing the game via beta, the studio may not be able to ascertain that a character with specific skills and weapons in a certain building will cause the game to glitch and fail to load a mission.
Nevertheless, despite the lack of a beta period, it’s possible that fans won’t have long to wait until they can play the game for themselves. Some of the new posts from the Cyberpunk 2077 Twitter account have led some fans to believe that a release date isn’t far off.
Cyberpunk 2077 is expected to release for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, but the game has yet to receive an official release date.
‘Cyberpunk 2077’ Won’t Be Getting A Beta
By Tyler Fischer – February 25, 2019 02:52 pm EST
Polish developer CD Projekt Red has revealed that it currently has no plans for any type of closed or open beta for Cyberpunk 2077.
The news comes way of the game’s official Twitter account, which revealed as much while interacting with a fan on the social media platform.
We have no plans for closed/open beta.
As you can see, CD Projekt doesn’t outright confirm there will never be any beta, but just that it currently has no plans for one. So, unless these plans change, nobody will be getting their hands early on the highly-anticipated game from the team behind The Witcher series. But, as you’ll know, plans change all the time, so there’s still some hope.
With no betas, it looks like CD Projekt Red is going to purely rely on feedback from QA testers, which is fine, as long as said QA testers get enough time with the game and have enough manpower.
Further, betas in the traditional sense don’t really exist anymore, or at least they aren’t extremely common. Most betas these days are so close to release that they serve more of a marketing purpose than anything. Hype builders, pre-order producers, that kinda stuff. If a game is a multiplayer title, betas also can serve as a good stress test for servers. But the days of releasing betas months before launch and changing and tweaking the game based on feedback isn’t as common as it used to be.
And of course with Cyberpunk 2077 being predominately a single-player game — though it will have some type of multiplayer element — there’s even less need for a beta.
Cyberpunk 2077 is in development for PS4, Xbox One, PC, and possibly next-gen systems. At the moment of publishing, there’s been no word of a release date or release window.
For more coverage on the open-world RPG, click here. For more on what the game is about, here’s an official pitch:
“In 2077, America is in pieces. Megacorps control life in all its aspects from the top floors of their sky-high fortresses. Down below, drug-pushing gangs, dirty-tech hustlers, and slingers of illicit braindances run the streets. The world in between is where decadence, sex, and pop culture mix with violent crime, extreme poverty, and the unattainable promise of the American Dream.
“In Cyberpunk 2077 you play as V—a hired gun on the rise and you just got your first serious contract. In a world of cyberenhanced street warriors, tech-savvy netrunners, and corporate lifehackers, today you take your first step towards becoming an urban legend.”
There will not be a Cyberpunk 2077 beta
Cyberpunk 2077 is at the top of a lot of gamers’ most-wanted lists, including ours, but no one has any clue about when it’s coming out nor what systems it’ll be on apart from PC. Nevertheless, a lot of people will be excited when it finally does get a firm release date, and all of them would give their front teeth to play it early. Unfortunately, they may not get the chance, as developer CD Projekt has confirmed that it will not be holding an open or closed Cyberpunk 2077 beta.
This according to the official Cyberpunk 2077 Twitter account, so this information should be taken as official. The account was asked by a fan if, when the game goes to alpha or beta, whether the studio will hold it closed (just a select few people) or open (meaning everyone can play it). Unfortunately for anyone hoping to play Cyberpunk 2077 early, the reply was that CD Projekt has “no plans” for either an open or closed beta.
We have no plans for closed/open beta.
Undoubtedly there will be a beta of some sort, as it’s a natural part of the video game development process, but it will only be available internally for CD Projekt RED’s own testing department. This isn’t altogether surprising, of course. Generally speaking, the only games to get a public alpha or beta are titles with a strong multiplayer component, which of course needs testing on as wide a spectrum of machines and locations as possible. While there are rumors that Cyberpunk 2077 will have some sort of online multiplayer, nothing has been confirmed.
The only thing that is certain is that the official Cyberpunk 2077 Twitter feed will continue to give us helpful, solid information about the game, in the absence of any official press releases. Earlier this month, for example, it confirmed that Cyberpunk 2077 would not be an Epic Games Store exclusive, which came as a relief to a lot of PC gamers. Can someone ask about a release date next, please?
No Open and Closed Beta for Cyberpunk 2077: CD Projekt RED
One of the biggest and most highly anticipated games currently in development won’t get an open or closed beta. According to CD Projekt RED, Cyberpunk 2077 won’t be getting any playtests. The single player title will release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC without giving players an opportunity to try the experience.
But no one is ruling out a demo for those who preorder the game.
The official Twitter account for Cyberpunk was asked if the game will get an open/closed beta. The response disappointed many. According to CD Projekt RED’s official Twitter account confirmed that Cyberpunk 2077 won’t be getting an open or closed beta prior to its release date.
We have no plans for closed/open beta.
There is no release date for Cyberpunk 2077 for now but there are many reports that state the game is releasing in 2020. CD Projekt RED also confirmed that there won’t be an exclusive deal with Epic Games Store.
Over the past few months, Epic Games has signed exclusive deals with Ubisoft, Deep Silver, and other developers to bring games to its store. However, the community isn’t too happy about the matter and there has been some serious backlash.
Many wondered if Cyberpunk 2077 would make a similar deal with Epic Games Store. That is not the case as the game will release on Steam. However, there is no confirmation for an Epic Games Store release.
Cyberpunk 2077 gameplay demo was shared by the developers at E3 2018 and it was our first in-depth look at the title. Since then, it has been totally silent from CD Projekt RED.
Cyberpunk 2077 will release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The game is likely to release on PlayStation 5 and the next Xbox. According to the latest report, the next Xbox is called Xbox Lockhart and Xbox Anaconda, yes, there are two variants of the next Xbox console.
Cyberpunk 2077 no tendrá beta, según confirma CD Projekt Red
26 de febrero de 2019 – 09:50 CET
Tal y como confirma CD Projekt RED en sus redes oficiales, el equipo no planea lanzar una beta (abierta o cerrada) para el esperado Cyberpunk 2077.
Cyberpunk 2077 no contará con beta abierta ni cerrada. Así de clara se mostró la cuenta oficial de Twitter del juego de CD Projekt RED al responder una de las consultas que un usuario le hizo, asegurando que la compañía “no tiene planes” para llevar a cabo ninguna de estas versiones de prueba.
Una larga espera
Ya son más de cinco años los que han transcurrido desde que el título fue anunciado por el estudio que nos trajo el excelente The Witcher 3. Viendo lo espectacular que luce y sabiendo que el equipo que compone el desarrollo del juego está conformado por más de 400 personas, no nos cabe duda en que muchos de los que esperan el juego tendrían también mucho interés en probar una pequeña píldora de forma anticipada a la llegada final del juego. Por este motivo, uno de los fans preguntó directamente al Twitter de Cyberpunk 2077 si había planes para una posible beta, ya fuera abierta para todos los jugadores o cerrada y restringida a unos privilegiados. La respuesta fue negativa, confirmando así que por el momento el equipo no se plantea el lanzar una prueba para el juego.
We have no plans for closed/open beta.
Debido al desconocimiento actual de la fecha de lanzamiento de Cyberpunk 2077, cualquier información es de agradecer. Entre las últimas noticias recibidas estas pasadas semanas, supimos que el juego llegará a Steam, algo que cada vez es más incierto debido al auge de la tienda digital de distribución Epic Store, algo que ha causado controversia en títulos tales como Metro Exodus. En cuanto al lanzamiento de la obra, y siguiendo con el humor característico utilizado por el equipo detrás del juego, comentaron que llegaría “cuando esté listo”.
Basado en el famoso y alabado juego de rol clásico, de los de lápiz, papel y dados, CD Projekt RED cambia la Espada y Brujería de The Witcher por los entornos futuristas, las armas de fuego y láser y los implantes biomecánicos de Cyberpunk 2077, un RPG de acción para PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One y Stadia de mundo abierto basado en el universo del clásico juego de rol de Mike Pondsmith, Cyberpunk 2020. El juego sigue la historia de V, un arma mercenaria de Night City, la metrópolis más violenta y peligrosa del futuro controlado por corporaciones. Una completa creación del personaje permitirá a los jugadores a elegir el género de V, su apariencia visual, su clase, así como su pasado. Todo dará forma al juego. Con docenas de horas de historia principal, y muchas más actividades adicionales, siempre hay algo que ver y hacer en Night City. Los jugadores experimentarán todo a través de los ojos de V, con un sistema de diálogo interactivo que les permitirá una mayor inmersión narrativa. De vuelta en Cyberpunk encontraremos el punto fuerte de CD Projekt RED sobre elecciones y consecuencias. Mientras avanzan por las calles de Night City y los enormes rascacielos, los jugadores deberán tomar complicadas decisiones que le seguirán a lo largo de todo el juego.
Cyberpunk 2077 will have neither open nor closed beta tests
CD Projekt Red have confirmed that their highly anticipated RPG, Cyberpunk 2077, will not have any open or closed beta tests, Considering the nature of the tests in recent times, one could argue this is a positive, consumer-friendly change.
CD Projekt Red are still being tight-lipped on any information regarding Cyberpunk 2077, but a few bits of information come along every now and then, usually as a result of fervent fans’ continuous questions. One such case happened in Cyberpunk 2077’s Twitter, when a fan inquired whether the game’s beta will be open or closed.
It turns out that it was wrong to assume Cyberpunk 2077 would go into a beta test at all, as the official response was that CD Projekt Red has no plans for either closed or open beta. This means players will get their first chance to play it during a potential demo at an expo or if that doesn’t happen either, on Cyberpunk 2077’s release day.
Considering the state of games that enter “beta” tests lately, being deprived of Cyberpunk 2077 until it’s ready may be a blessing in disguise for the fans. Some of the most recent examples that serve well to show that beta tests these days are just publicity stunts without offering a properly finished game. Fallout 76 and Anthem come to mind right away.
On top of that, many players make up their mind about a game based on beta tests, since usually not much changes between beta and full release nowadays. Some exceptions still happen, but we mostly get a few glitch fixes between beta a full release, with many bugs still remaining in the game, ruining the initial impressions and potentially the whole experience.
The Witcher 3 itself had a somewhat rocky start due to performance issues but CD Projekt Red didn’t stop until they made what many consider to be a gaming equivalent of the second coming. Having a similar model for Cyberpunk 2077 shouldn’t hurt. We do want another amazing RPG experience, right?
Besides, CD Projekt Red have a history of creating great games and letting them speak for themselves instead of giving incentives such as early access for preorders.
Cyberpunk 2077 Confirmed for No Beta Period
CD Projekt RED’s Cyberpunk 2077 is likely on the mind of many gamers, especially ever since the reveal of the glorious gameplay demo last year. That said, we still don’t know when we will be able to get our hands on the highly-anticipated title, but it looks like we’ll be waiting even longer, as there will be no beta period.
One fan recently asked the developers if the game will be open or closed during its alpha and beta periods, but CDPR dealt a blow to those hoping to get a taste of Night City prior to release.
We have no plans for closed/open beta.
While the developer says that they have no plans to release a testing phase for the game, it might as well be a dagger through the heart of every fan wishing to play Cyberpunk 2077. Okay, that’s a bit overdramatic, but you get the idea. We all just want to traverse Night City and do our very best in the future.
Of course, the idea of a beta isn’t exactly what it used to be. These days, one might think the testing phases developers hold for their games, especially when so close to the actual release, are more along the lines of a promotion for a title rather than an actual test to ensure everything is in order. Not saying that is always the case, but gone are the days of getting your hands on a game months ahead of release to provide quality feedback to the devs.
Cyberpunk 2077 is still without a release date, but is currently in development for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Keep it tuned to Don’t Feed the Gamers as this story develops, and for other gaming goodness going on right now, check out the following:
What say you, gamers? Are you disappointed that we won’t be getting a Cyberpunk 2077 beta? Sound off in the comments section below, and be sure to follow DFTG on Twitter for live gaming and entertainment news 24/7!

Cyberpunk 2077 Release Date Teased by CD Projekt RED?
A Cyberpunk 2077 tweet for Valentine’s Day has fans speculating about the game’s release date and if CD Projekt RED is preparing for a major announcement soon.
This week, most game developers celebrated Valentine’s Day by releasing new cosmetics (Apex Legends) or by hosting special events (Pokemon GO). Cyberpunk 2077 developer CD Projekt RED also wanted to get in on the fun, and the resulting Valentine’s Day message has fans speculating wildly.
To celebrate the most romantic day of the year, the official Cyberpunk 2077 account shared an image of a cybernetically modified bounty hunter named “Cupid.” Ditching the traditional bow and arrow for a semi-automatic rifle, the Cyberpunk 2077 character looks better equipped to cause mayhem in Night City than get people falling in love. While many fans of the developer were happy to see CD Projekt RED post something for Valentine’s Day, further analysis of Cupid’s weapon led to speculation about the Cyberpunk 2077 release date.
There are multiple numbers found on Cupid’s weapon, including the main part of the rifle and on its scope. Just below Cupid’s nose, the number “69” can be seen. On the scope of the weapon, there are several figures, but the numbers “112” are what stand out.
Spotted on February 14th, this bounty hunter is wielding a one-of-a-kind semi-automatic high caliber rifle with a special property of filling holes in people’s hearts. And he might just be having you in his sight. #ValentinesDay pic.twitter.com/sf6mN77jlb
The number 69 may stand for Sunday, June 9, which would be just two days before the official start of E3 2019. Microsoft traditionally holds its E3 press conference on a Sunday and its E3 2018 press conference featured a Cyberpunk 2077 trailer. While, the numbers 112 may refer to the game’s release date, or is it when another major Cyberpunk 2077 announcement will be made?
And that’s if the numbers mean anything at all. The 69 meme is incredibly popular and the floods of replies from fans saying “nice” reflect that CD Projekt RED knows its audience well. Likewise, the numbers on the scope of the weapon could just be a standard ammo count rather than a teaser for some kind of announcement.
Whatever the numbers do (or don’t) mean, it wouldn’t be the first time that CD Projekt RED has got fans speculating with its social media posts. Last year, fans wondered if the game would feature music from Lady Gaga because the Cyberpunk 2077 account responded to a very old tweet posted by the pop star and actress. The Twitter account also teased the game was about to be re-revealed at E3 2018, but whether something comes out of this tweet as well remains to be seen.
Cyberpunk 2077 is expected to release for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, but the game has yet to receive an official release date.
Cyberpunk 2077 Beta Not Happening, According to Developers
Home » Cyberpunk 2077 » Cyberpunk 2077 Beta Not Happening, According to Developers
Yes, sad to say, Cyberpunk 2077 won’t have any kind of alpha or beta testing for players. This has been revealed via the game’s official Twitter account. And, to be honest, the kind of game that Cyberpunk 2077 is just doesn’t need any beta testing. I’m especially glad that there won’t be any beta, given the current climate of publishers basically selling beta access to players.
We’re all anxiously waiting for the launch of Cyberpunk 2077. I’m certain that there’s a lot of people that can’t wait to get their sweaty mitts on it. I know I can’t. Possibly as a result of that desire, some have asked whether the game is going to have any kind of alpha or beta testing for players. The official Cyberpunk 2077 Twitter account has effectively put an end to such hopes, stating categorically: “We have no plans for closed/open beta.” Boom. There you go.
Now, honestly, this really shouldn’t come as a surprise to anybody. Cyberpunk 2077 is going to be a single player-only RPG, by all accounts. What would you need an alpha or beta testing period for? There are no servers to stress-test or anything. Sure, there might be some problems just after the game launches, bugs and glitches and whatnot, but you don’t necessarily need prior testing to solve that. I know that there have been single player games that had betas before, but come on, it’s really not crucial at all. Especially in this climate of selling beta access through preorders. Just be patient and play when everybody else does.
Cyberpunk 2077 has no release date right now. It might come out this year, for all we know. That would really be a surprise. More likely, though, the game is going to launch in 2020 at the earliest. I’m assuming they’re trying to hold off until the new generation of consoles releases. That said, I’m pretty confident that Cyberpunk 2077 is going to be available, on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
Cyberpunk Red Tabletop RPG Delayed
Meatspace infections delay RPG
Cyberpunk Red, the tabletop interquel that’s set between Cyberpunk 2020 and Cyberpunk 2077, has been delayed due to COVID-19.
Cyberpunk Red takes place in 2045 and is a pen-and-paper RPG like Dungeons & Dragons. The game is described as taking place in a world where a 4th Corporate War has just concluded and there is a tentative peace, leaving everyone else to fend for themselves in a destroyed world. It sounds depressing, but for enterprising souls, there are always opportunities, but you may have to get your hands a little dirty.
There’s a lot to like about the description for Cyberpunk Red, but tabletop gamers will have to wait a little while longer for its release:
We’ll just come right out and say it. The TRPG industry got punched in the gut by the pandemic and there’s just no way we can release in June without compromising quality. We’re currently looking at summer’s end for a release but until the world calms down and things stop fluctuating, our crystal ball is full of fog.
So who knows when it’s coming out, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get excited about it still. Right now you can watch a playthrough on RealmSmith’s YouTube channel, which includes people like Matthew Lillard (Shaggy), Noura Ibrahim (Vampire: The Masquerade: L.A. By Night), and Luke Gygax (son of Gary Gygax, creator of D&D).
It’s also been pointed out that for any playthrough you might see the rules aren’t yet final, so if you watch a playthrough don’t expect the rules to be a 1:1 recreation of what you’ll eventually be playing. In fact, the rules won’t be final until the “book is in the printer”, so who knows how much changes there’ll be when the game is finally released.
What do you think of this news? Are you interested in playing Cyberpunk Red to learn more about Cyberpunk 2077? Do you like tabletop board games? Let us know in the comments!
Cyberpunk 2077 delayed because it performs badly on Xbox One – says insider
A Polish insider claims Cyberpunk 2077 has been delayed because of its “extremely unsatisfactory” performance on Xbox One.
Cyberpunk 2077 is one of the most anticipated games of 2020, meaning it’s understandable that a lot of people were devastated when CD Projekt RED shared that it is being delayed to September. While the developers themselves shared the commonplace justification of wanting to make the game as perfect as possible, a Polish insider has recently claimed that one of the reasons it has been delayed is because of its performance on Xbox One.
Ambitious games such as Cyberpunk 2077 are designed to push the limits of hardware as was the case with The Witcher 3 back in 2015. This is why Geralt’s third adventure was subject to a reported downgrade before it was released onto PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
While there’s no knowing whether CD Projekt RED’s foray into cyberpunk will receive a downgrade also, it has been reported that it’s not performing as well as intended on Xbox One.

Why was Cyberpunk 2077 delayed?
Polish insider Borys Niespielak claims that the main reason Cyberpunk 2077 has been delayed is because of its “extremely unsatisfactory” performance on Xbox One.
CD Projekt RED posted a message on Twitter saying that the game is fully playable and finished, but that they need and want a few extra months to make it as perfect as possible.

This explanation is common and nothing new, but Niespielak has elaborated by claiming that it’s struggling to perform as intended on Microsoft’s original console.
Speaking on a podcast translated on Altchar, Niespielak has reportedly said that the original Xbox One console is not powerful enough to run the game properly.
Borys supposedly claims that sources had told him that the game would be postponed if the issues with its performance weren’t resolved by January 2020.
Altchar have shared a translation of the podcast on Discord from a user named Klawiaturodzierzca.
All of the above isn’t offical as CD Projekt RED didn’t out either the PS4 or Xbox One in their explanation for delaying the game. So, with that being said, you’ll want to take the finger-pointing at Xbox One and current-gen hardware with a grain of salt.
It’s also not clear as to whether or not the performance is “unsatisfactory” on just the original Xbox One and PS4, or if it affects the Pro and X as well.
