Cyberpunk 2077 design lead Andrzej Zawadzki and game’s story set in the dystopian Night City, to be an even bigger hit than its medieval-fantasy predecessor, The Witcher.
Zawadzki and his team have reportedly received a number of death threats following the further postponement of Cyberpunk 2077 – the third so far, from November 19 to December 10. The design lead has since denounced the threats
I want to address one thing in regards of the @CyberpunkGame delay.
I understand you’re feeling angry, disappointed and want to voice your opinion about it.
However, sending death threats to the developers is absolutely unacceptable and just wrong. We are people, just like you.

just refunded the purchase. There is no point in buying a game from a dev who cannot keep their promise.
When we were kids, we’ve learnt a valuable lesson from THE BOY WHO CRIED WOLF story.
I don’t think I’ll ever buy another game from this studio.
