A recent data leak of CD Projekt Red reveals a series of montage videos featuring Cyberpunk 2077’s glitches as they existed before the game’s release.
Action RPG Cyberpunk 2077‘s notoriety as a glitch-riddled mess is so profound that its own developers have poked fun at the fact with video captures and montages compiling the game’s “greatest of” glitches together. Needless to say, it’s a long video. And there’s more than one.
Cyberpunk 2077 has already gone down as one of the most dismal releases in gaming history since its release in December of last year, but that doesn’t mean that players and critics alike are done raking it over the coals. Pointing out the game’s numerous foibles, glitches, and bugs have become as much a part of the game’s experience as the game itself. The game’s developer CD Projekt Red has since had its hands full dealing with not only fixing the multiple issues that have ravaged the game, but disgruntled players demanding refunds and an ongoing slew of class-action lawsuits from outraged shareholders.
But while Cyberpunk 2077‘s glitchiness came as a surprise to players, it certainly wasn’t news to the developers. A recent leak from CDPR reveals that at least one dev made the best of what they undoubtedly knew would be a bad situation with a video montage of glitches and errors found in the game during its development. The videos were subsequently posted on Reddit, but some have been taken down by the videos’ hosting site for violating terms of service. The post’s author, Winds_Howling2, has provided links to the other videos, which are available to watch in the comments section of the original post. There are sections in some of the videos that are absolutely NSFW and won’t be shown, but one of the SFW clips set to “Shooting Stars” shows off some of these glitches:
A lot of the glitches seen in the videos are clearly from the game’s mid-stage development, where problems are more likely to arise. The question that arises from the leak is more or less did the developer know that most of these glitches would debut along with the rest of the game after its release, or were the compilation videos they made just a hilarious coincidence? Video montages of errors tend to come out after the game is released, as a way to rib at the developers. It’s not often that the videos are made before the game’s release when glitches are just a normal part of the development process that are expected to be more or less gone by release, or at least fixed within a reasonable time frame.
Unfortunately, since these videos were leaked and were probably never meant to go public, that question will likely go unanswered. But one thing remains certain overall — the community has not forgiven CDPR for the glitches that plagued Cyberpunk 2077 to the point of ridicule, and are not even close to done with those coals.
Cyberpunk 2077 is available to play on Google Stadia, PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S platforms.
