Unless you've been living under a rock, the launch of Cyberpunk 2077 wasn't the best. Not counting the issues it faced on last-gen systems, it was also plagued with bugs, broken quests, and glitches. Following the cyber attack on CD Projekt earlier this year, internal bug compilation videos appear to have leaked online, showing a range of technical issues that were compiled together before the game's launch.

The since removed videos (but captured and saved to view on VGC), showcase a wide range of technical issues in the pre-alpha stages of the game, from broken NPCs to falling through the map. It's important to note that these issues, and even compilation videos, are generally common during a game's development. But due to the launch of Cyberpunk 2077, fans have been quick to jump on the footage.

A since deleted tweet from one of the game's developers seemingly proves the legitimacy of the videos. It was said to be a "fun composition of bug materials collected", and is claimed to have reached back years.

A similar video was created by CD Projekt Red for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. It seems these videos were once intended to be shared with the public, but following the reception were held back. Again, it's important to reiterate that these videos are common in games development, but it is an amusing look at years of bugs and glitches the team have been faced with.

CD Projekt has reported a massive drop in profits since the launch of Cyberpunk 2077, despite last year being their most profitable year thus far. A next-gen version is scheduled to launch in the second half of 2021, which will hopefully reignite the excitement for the game with a more polished version. Hopefully...
