Cyberpunk 2077 Quest Director Praises Community For Their Patience & Support While CDPR Worked On Fixing The Game

The quest director for CD Projekt RED‘s Cyberpunk 2077 has heaped praise on the community for their patience and ongoing support to the studio while the team were busy attempting to turn the game’s fortunes around following a rocky launch.

Cyberpunk 2077 arrived in December 2020 on PS4, PC, and Xbox One, but was plagued by various technical issues, particularly on consoles, which took CDPR a considerable amount of time to fix.

It wasn’t until the arrival of the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S versions that things really improved, and the launch of Cyberpunk 2077 2.0 and Phantom Liberty this year really transformed things for the better. All in all, it cost CDPR around $125 million to fix the game and develop the expansion.

Speaking with TheNeonArcade, Pawel Sasko had the following to say about Cyberpunk 2077’s widely-publicised redemption arc:

Look at the reception of Cyberpunk right now, how it has turned. Look at the reviews, look at the videos, the discourse around the game. The fact that you guys come back to the game, play it again and have fun. I have incredible gratitude. After the release of Cyberpunk, it was tough, it was heartbreaking but we kept going.

It’s also not even [just] for us, but also for other devs. It’s a sign of ‘yeah you can do it,’ like the Halo games and No Man’s Sky. They’ve shown that it’s possible to do it. In a way, if you fail the only thing that matters is how you’ll be remembered afterwards. Will you just get up and keep going? We kept going, and we managed to make it and I’m honestly so proud of this team and community.

Cyberpunk 2077 is now in a much better state than it was nearly three years ago, and CDPR is currently putting much of its focus on the upcoming sequel.
