Why Cyberpunk 2077 failed?

Cyberpunk 2077 may have caused the biggest disappointment in the history of gaming. It almost took 8 years to develop but has so many flaws that was unable to fulfill the hype that it created among the gamers. Though its graphics is great and it was able to earn benefit over its development cost, still it didn’t took the place that we all thought it deserved. There are many reasons behind this game’s failure. Some are given below:

The game is almost unplayable in the next gen console ps4 and Xbox one. This game was meant to be released for that generation. But it has severe fps and resolution issues on the last gen. The game crashes on the last gen constantly. It was meant to run at 30 fps but sometimes this game goes to 10-15 fps or freezes.

The next big thing behind the failure of this game is, it has enormous amount of bugs. Bugs are a normal part of newly released video games. They can be fixed by the next updates or patches. But the bugs of cyberpunk 2077 is so enormous that sometimes it feels like the games is too much unplayable.

Again, Cyberpunk has mediocre AI and NPCs.  The publisher CD Project Red promised that cyberpunk will have advanced NPCs.  The NPCs don’t react that much on violence or other crimes. Almost all of them have some generic reactions. Also the police of this game is not so good. They just teleport anywhere whenever the player commits crime. Ultimately we can say the NPC’s are nowhere even close to advanced.

Too much ambition is the factor which probably caused cyberpunk to be a big upset. CDPR promised it will have most advanced NPCs, they added Keanu Reeves as ‘Johny Silverhand’ in this game, they said it will be playable in the last gen consoles. Many resources said that Cyberpunk 2077 was the most anticipated game of 2020. But when the game was released gamers realized that it was not even close.

At last we can say that, the big mistake that CD Project Red made was they released the game unpolished. They may have released the game a bit prematurely. But behind this, it also has some reasons. People started to force CDPR to release their game as CDPR already gave many release dates but they were failed to release the game on those deadlines. Also CDPR was forced by their investors to release the game early which finally resulted a failure and unfinished release of Cyberpunk 2077.
