Game delays often receive mixed reactions from fans and gamers alike. Yesterday, the tragic news of Cyberpunk 2077 getting pushed back again and this time to December 10 was which completely unexpected. Many people were disappointed by claiming that the hype for the game has died off, while others tried to be positive by becoming more understanding of the issue.
As for me, I was pretty annoyed, to be honest. But then again if these delays will make the game better, then I say by all means. I’d rather not be in a situation where a game becomes so broken that playing it makes me mad.
These are just some normal reactions from normal people who are passionate about gaming. And then there are other people who think threatening lives for the sake of a game is the way to live.
We are not living in the world of Cyberpunk 2077.
According to a tweet released by Andrzej Zawadzki, Senior Game Designer of CD Projekt Red (CDPR), on his Twitter account, developers had begun receiving death threats after the delay got announced. He goes on to explain that it’s wrong and they are just people too, which is entirely accurate since we are all just trying to make a living at the end of the day.
The reason for this overreaction of some people seems to have come from a tweet from Cyberpunk 2077’s official channel. In it, players got a confirmation that without a doubt there would be no more delays for the game. And since that didn’t turn out to be true, they are taking offence for being misled.
However, despite CDPR apologizing and explaining the situation, some are just too blinded by the rage to see reason. Zawadzki even revealed one of the threats to show how serious it was with people willing to threaten a man’s family over a game. It’s scary to see the lengths that some people will go to get what they want.
