Cyberpunk 2077 developer CD Projekt Red is issuing takedowns on any content material that reveals the sport’s contents, be it an in-game video and even only a individual speaking about Cyberpunk 2077 with out displaying something from the sport. CD Projekt Red says it does not need any spoilers on the market earlier than launch, which is why it is taking down something remotely to do with the sport that, as talked about beforehand, folks paid for and purchased legally. This additionally implies that threads displaying numerous bugs within the sport, displaying graphics high quality points, posts criticising the sport for cultural appropriation, are additionally being taken down.
