Cyberpunk 2077 Devs Received Death Threats over Game Delay

Cyberpunk 2077 has had a troublesome path, with many delays over these past months. Yesterday another delay was announced because the developers felt that they needed to polish some things before it launches on December 10th.

Due to this news, it appears that some fans have taken it too far, to the point where some people have been sending death threats to the developers. Andrzej Zawadzki, the senior game designer, has taken to Twitter to kindly ask the fans to stop sending nasty messages to the developers.

“I want to address one thing in regards to 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,” is what the senior designer said.

The game is in development for several years now, starting as a game for PC and the consoles that were out at that time, and now it was announced that Cyberpunk 2077 will be available on Google Stadia and the other seven platforms, including Xbox Series X/S and PS5. Supposedly, these delays are because of rumored toxic working conditions in the studio, where some of the employees are reporting 100-hour weeks, as tweeted by Jason Schreier from Bloomberg. He is asking for everyone to stop saying that they are working long hours too.

Zawadzki detailed some of the threats they have been getting since announcing the last delay. Some people have been messaging them that they will burn them alive for not launching the game when it was firstly announced.

This shows that some fans, probably many of them, do not care at all for the people that are putting their private lives on pause just so they could finish the game on time.
