CDPR Slams Latest Cyberpunk 2077 Rumour As 'Simply Not True'

CD Projekt Red's Cyberpunk 2077 has suffered a turbulent launch to say the least, and a recent rumour hasn't been making things any better - but now the studio has come out and dismissed it as "simply not true".

Like our friends at Push Square, we decided not to cover this rumour at the time because of its anonymity, but nevertheless it gained a lot of traction, with the person claiming to be a developer at the company, and suggesting that plans were in place for a "No Man's Sky style comeback" for the game in the coming months.

The rumour goes into a lot of detail about how the company was supposedly aiming to complete this "comeback", as well as highlighting that CDPR "hurt themselves to keep investors safe and sound," suggesting dev morale was at an all-time low, and claiming there would be "major departures from the studio".

But as you can see, it's been completely debunked by CD Projekt Red, so we're going to file this away in the 'not true' pile. Let's hope Cyberpunk 2077 in general has a bit of a smoother ride in 2021!
