CD Projekt Red Requests That Fans Don’t Stream Cyberpunk 2077 Before Its Official Release Day

After being in development for a long time and undergoing multiple delays, Cyberpunk 2077 is finally going to be released next week on December 10, 2020. To ensure that the hype doesn’t die down, CD Projekt Red has continuously promoted the game on social media, posting a variety of trailers that showcase its features.

For instance, the developer recently dropped a trailer touting the game’s photo mode. However, it appears that CD Projekt Red would prefer it if fans didn’t release any footage from the game that didn’t come from the developer itself in order to avoid any spoilers from spreading.

It’s highly likely that content creators were given early copies of Cyberpunk 2077, but it appears that CD Projekt Red is also concerned about spoilers getting leaked by those who happen to own the game early.

Cyberpunk 2077’s official Twitter account posted a tweet “kindly” asking fans and players “not to stream/let’s play, or release any similar content before December 9th, 12 PM CET/3 AM PST.” Although, the post does admit that it’s going to be hard for the community to be completely free of spoilers before the designated launch day.

That being said, there are going to be consequences for those who don’t follow this request. The tweet implies that videos will be taken down if they’re posted before the game’s official release.

CD Projekt Red attempts to disguise this threat though by saying that the MAX-TAC or the Maximum Force Tactical Division of the in-game police will be the ones responsible for taking down the videos.

Those who read the post will most likely get tonal whiplash just like we did. After all, the message starts off with the developer “kindly asking” its fans this one request, which is followed by takedown threats.

The message ends with a sobering thought, which jokingly suggests that since it’s currently 2020 and so much has happened already, tomorrow isn’t guaranteed. That being said, we completely understand why CD Projekt Red is concerned about spoilers, given how there were already a couple of leaks that took place last month in November.

In addition, Cyberpunk 2077’s preorders already surpassed any Witcher title, so there’s going to be a lot of people playing this game.


Even though CD Projekt Red has been under a lot of criticism lately because of all the delays as well as the mandatory crunch time that was required of its employees, it can’t be denied that the excitement fans feel towards Cyberpunk 2077’s looming release is palpable.

For the past couple of weeks, fans have been creating all kinds of fan-made projects to show their excitement and appreciation for the upcoming game. For instance, one fan recreated Cyberpunk 2077’s trailer from E3 2018 in World of Warcraft.

In light of the recent DMCA takedown notices that many Twitch streamers have been experiencing, players will be happy to know that for the most part, Cyberpunk 2077 will be safe for streaming.

We have yet to find out the extent of this supposed safety, but the Cyberpunk 2077 Twitter account previously confirmed that the game’s soundtrack was made from scratch.
