Cyberpunk 2077 Dev claims that Soft Relaunch Rumors are not related

CD Projekt Red’s global PR director, Radek Grabowski, says leaks regarding a soft relaunch of the besieged Cyberpunk 2077 are not “coherent”.

In response to rumors of a “soft relaunch” to Cyberpunk 2077, CD Project Red Global’s global PR director, Radek Grabowski, suggested the allegations were inaccurate. It presumed Cyberpunk 2077 restart leakage originally rounded out this weekend thanks to a viral Reddit post whose information came from unconfirmed details shared on 4chan.

According to the leak, Cyberpunk 2077s the next generation update, version 1.5, will act as a soft relaunch called Cyberpunk 2077: Samurai Edition. The update will reportedly introduce fresh features such as barbershops and a transmog system, as well as implement improved enemy AI and better balanced prey. If the 4chan-derived rumor turns out to be correct, Samurai version can also collect free DLC with new weapons, extra concerts, New Game Plus and options for customizing apartments. CD Projekt Red, apparently plans to reveal the above and more in a live broadcast this coming February. Still, a developer’s response calls into question the accuracy of the rumors.

CDPR Global PR director Radek Grabowski weighed in on the leak in a Twitter response to Forbes journalist Paul Tassi (via GamingBolt). Although Grabowski would not offer much in terms of details, he told Tassi, “This thing is not connected.” That Forbes author reached out for clarification but has not yet received a response; as a result, it is difficult to discern which parts of the rumor may prove to be correct in the long run. Admittedly, Grabowski’s vague thoughts on the matter are as follows:

To some extent, Grabowski’s short tweet raises more questions than it answers. Are the content-related parts of the leak inaccurate, or is it just “soft relaunch“part that contradicts CDPR’s future plans regarding Cyberpunk 2077? As the PS5 and Xbox Series X | S upgrades are still on track for a rollout in Q1 2022, the wait for clarity may not last too long.

Cyberpunk 2077 launched digitally and in retail in December 2020, approximately eight years after the first announcement. Despite a disastrous release, especially on the latest generation of consoles, the sci-fi role-playing game title managed to move a staggering 13 million units within two weeks of availability. Several hotfixes and major patches have gone live to fix the countless issues that once plagued the experience, and it seems that many players could not be more pleased with where the product currently stands. This is very clear in recent influx of positive Steam reviews for the CDPR-developed game.
