The claims had been sweeping and completely unverified, however they carried an air of legitimacy partly because of previous statements by way of senior stage dressmaker Miles Tost, who mentioned in October 2020 that “reducing options and scope is an overly commonplace a part of building.”
“In fact we iterate and alter stuff and naturally we additionally could have concepts that sound nice on paper however then does not finally end up understanding neatly within the recreation with all of the different options,” Tost mentioned on the time. “I perceive, that is disappointing for everybody when it occurs and likewise obscure with out all of the context of building surroundings, however on this case I simply kindly ask you to your believe.”
The put up in the beginning seemed a couple of weeks in the past on GameFAQs, however did not appear to pick out up traction till it was once reposted to Reddit previous this week, the place it attracted greater than 1700 feedback. CD Projekt implicitly addressed the “reduce content material” declare the day past after the discharge of a mod that enabled a brand new, fully-voiced romance possibility for male characters, telling Eurogamer that the unused voice strains had been recorded best “so shall we keep away from lacking one thing by way of mistake that will require long term recordings.”
As of late’s commentary is extra forceful, and as CD Projekt itself mentioned, extraordinary: “Most often we do not touch upon rumors however this time we would have liked to make an exception as this tale is solely now not true.”

It is a very wide denial, and there is not any refutation of any explicit allegations made within the put up, which additionally contains claims of government incompetence and grievance of Keanu Reeves’ portrayal of Johnny Silverhand. That can be no less than partly on account of conceivable criminal motion bobbing up from the botched release of the sport, which has certainly left the studio feeling very wary about what it says publicly. Nonetheless, the truth that CD Projekt felt pressured to reply in any respect is exceptional in its personal proper, and indicative of the drive the studio is dealing with to show issues round.
