For 2020 there was quite a bit of anticipation and hype for the video game industry. This was the year that we knew both the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X platforms would release into the marketplace. Likewise, there was plenty of additional video game titles in development set for a launch sometime within the 2021 calendar year. Unfortunately, none of us could have predicted what 2020 would hold for us.
Thanks to a worldwide health pandemic outbreak, there was plenty of events canceled. Likewise, due to the quarantine orders set around the world, most of us were forced into working remotely. That was the cause for several studios having to delay their video game titles out of the 2020 year for a release in 2021. While 2020 wasn’t filled with as many video game launches, this should make for a rather packed year for gaming when 2021 hits. This is also due to developers finally getting things back on track with employees working from their homes rather than at the same studio offices.
While the next-generation video game console platforms managed to get out into the marketplace on time, there were still a few notable games that also managed to keep their intended release dates. One of the most hyped video game titles for 2020 also found its release into the market before 2021 hit, Cyberpunk 2077.
CD Projekt Red was seeking to release their Cyberpunk 2077 video game title into the marketplace before 2021 hit and after years of hype, fans were able to get a copy of this futuristic RPG on December 10, 2020. However, it’s a game that needed more time in development. With poor optimizations and a flood of bugs, this game quickly had mixed reception online. Some fans had no problems with their platforms besides the various bugs, however, some fans quickly sought out refunds.
When Cyberpunk 2077 launched, it was essentially unplayable on the standard Xbox One and PlayStation 4 platforms. As mentioned, this leads to refunds being issued while the developers continue to work on updates aimed to optimize the game for all platforms. Now it looks like fans are finding some cut content that was meant to be included in the game. Throughout the game map, you’ll find Ncart Night City Area Rapid Transit locations. There is even a rail system is placed for certain areas which appear to have been something developers wanted to include, but likely had to scrap due to time constraints.
There are even some buildings that are not finished with development, which has us wondering just what all the transit locations would have been intended for. While it’s likely a means to fast travel to certain areas of the map, perhaps some missions involved the transit system. Likewise, we know that the developers had intended to bring out more content after launch so this could be a functioning feature of the game at a later date, although that’s purely speculation on my part.
it looks like they planned on having a fully functioning train system but couldn’t finish it in time! from r/cyberpunkgame
