Some people managed to have the proper constellations overhead at birth, and have gotten obscenely lucky if you haven’t heard.
There are users out there that are already playing Cyberpunk 2077 thanks to general incompetence and bumbling of warehouses and a myriad of retail sellers that all have trouble figuring out what day it currently is.
The people that do have it have been all too eager to spoil everything they possibly can, because what fun is life without damaging a few others in the process, but the good news is that everything has been reported as working wonderfully well. Outstanding combat, fantastic writing, and the details seen in the world from these users are, frankly speaking, astonishing.
Yet that isn’t what we’re looking to focus on, as it can venture too easily and far too quickly into spoiler territory, and no one wants that.
What is interesting, however, is that users who already have their hands on a copy have been uploading screenshots of a game update that takes a whopping 43GB, and the developers don’t even consider it to be a day one patch. This is simply continuing to iron out kinks and update content in preparation for the release.
It’s an update but – fun twist – not the update we’ll have for launch. 😅

CD Porjekt Red has been fast on the trigger towards users attempting to spoil aspects of the anticipated title, to their credit: Twitter has been filled with apparent DMCA takedowns due to copyright holdings on screenshots that come from the game itself, rather than YouTube clips and their ilk.
The good news in all of this, aside from the fact that it has been reported from standard users as an absolute blast to explore, is that CDPR is clearly still deep in the project ensuring that the title will meet as many expectations as possible upon launch on December 9/10.
The bad news is that it’s likely that to begin playing Cyberpunk 2077, you’ll be downloading far more than whatever preloading may be available and that CDPR developers (whom we’ve heard concerning statements regarding the level of crunch that they are under) are clearly still hard at the grindstone for the likely foreseeable future.
Whether that could sour some dispositions regarding the hotly anticipated title set to release next week is in the eye of the beholder.
Currently, Cyberpunk 2077 is still scheduled to release on December 9/10 (depending on where you live in the world) and we’ve seen pictures of the title within warehouses stocked on pallets: it’s happening. It just will come with a few downloads.
