What were the latest Cyberpunk 2077 rumours about?

A thread that began on GameFAQs and then spread through Reddit threw a lot of allegations at CD Projekt Red, claiming to be penned by an insider at the company, and it event made some predictions about where things could be heading next for Cyberpunk 2077.

The thread claimed, "CDPR hurt themselves to keep investors safe and sound. Now devs are hearing plans of a 'No Man’s Sky' style comeback due to late June. The first two patches should come out mid-March, despite what’s been said by top execs.

"There will be major departures from the studio in the coming months. Dev morale is on an all time down and Sony is roasting our asses due to the gigantic volume of refund requests. There will be a meeting today with Sony execs to figure out a way to compensate players threatening with legal action. Sony Japan is especially furious."

The thread also touched upon content and features that were allegedly cut from the game, implying that CD Projekt Red had chopped huge swathes of stuff out of the title to get it shipped.

A lot of momentum was gathered by the Reddit post, which has over 6,000 upvotes at the time of this article being written. Gamers absolutely flocked to this rumour, which is probably why CD Projekt Red stepped in.

CD Projekt Red was not willing to let this thread sit there on the internet gathering attention, and so the company took to its official Twitter account to debunk the thread and set things straight.

The official Tweet from the developers said, "Normally we don't comment on rumors but this time we wanted to make an exception as this story is simply not true."

The Tweet then linked off to the aforementioned Reddit post, making it clear that the rumour being debunked was the lengthy thread we detailed earlier in this article.

The Reddit post has since been updated, with the poster saying in a message at the top of the page, "Whatever's written below is confirmed false by CDPR themselves and rightfully flaired to represent the same."

The Cyberpunk 2077 saga continues to roll on, though, so we'll be sure to keep you posted as more news on the game comes to light.
