If you don’t want Cyberpunk 2077 spoiled for you then you have a long few weeks ahead of you. Retail copies of the game have leaked ahead of the game’s 10 December 2020 which means the internet is starting to spread spoilers and gameplay from the upcoming open-world RPG. Considering the game is only releasing on 10 December, this is quite early for retail copies to spread and should have been handled better.
According to Reddit, certain Amazon warehouses in the US received their Cyberpunk 2077 PS4 stock early. This led to leaked images of the retail box as well as the PS5 upgrade and contents sticker. However, a few days later, PS4 screenshots then appeared online showing off the very early parts of the game running on the console. We have also spotted the actual game discs themselves on another thread.
Thankfully, as soon as someone manages to get gameplay uploaded online, CD Projekt Red pulls it down. However, that won’t always be the case as there are some video providers who don’t have strict DMCA regulations and users may be able to get passed the publisher. We clicked on 17 YouTube videos which were pulled down. Even users who have tried to make use of the Google Drive function are not winning their fight against CD Projekt RED.
So far, the publisher is doing a great job keeping the spoilers at bay but you have been warned. The internet is not a safe place right now. We don’t know what the current Cyberpunk 2077 review embargo is at the moment and when you can expect media coverage from outlets around the world. This embargo should drop a day or two before the game’s launch which will allow media to safely upload gameplay from Cyberpunk 2077. Until then, stay safe.
