CDPR Threatens Streamers That Show Cyberpunk 2077 Early

Nobody wants their game ruined by spoilers—especially a development team that has suffered three different delays. That’s why CDPR is threatening to take down the videos of any streamers who (somehow) show Cyberpunk 2077 gameplay before December 9.

We already know that there are physical copies of Cyberpunk 2077 out in the wild. Stored in warehouses and backrooms, simply waiting for the green light to be released into the hands of voracious fans. Given that fact, it’s incredible that there haven’t been more leaks beyond a few screenshots from the PS4.

CDPR seems intent on making sure it stays that way with a post to Twitter yesterday, reminding overly eager streamers that it has the right to take down videos before the game is released. A few people took offense to the message, but the vast majority were understanding of both the message and the embargo.

The Tweet reads, in part, “We’re getting closer and closer to launch and chances are some of you will get your hands on a copy of Cyberpunk 2077 before release day.” The post continues, “…Our ambition is for gamers all across the world to have the same—spoiler-free—experience…This is why we kindly ask you NOT TO stream/let’s play before December 9…We will send MAX-TAC after everyone who does.”

CDPR isn’t unfriendly to content creators and streamers, though. The company announced earlier that the game will come with the option to turn off copyrighted music that might get videos taken down or demonetized. The game also comes with the option to censor any nudity. In fact, the closing two sentences of CDPR’s tweet explain that the company wants people to stream, share, and enjoy the game as much as possible. With an alleged 175 (plus) hours of content, there will be plenty of content for everyone to share and enjoy.

To put that amount of gameplay into perspective, that’s enough footage for 59 3-hour streams for loyal viewers to enjoy. Alternatively, that’s enough content to fill more than four 40-hour workweeks. All of that being said, everyone will have to start at the same place, so any footage before CDPR’s embargo date would be devastating to the enjoyment of everyone. Regardless of how you feel about the company or its message, it’s probably best for everyone if the embargo is respected. We only have a week left until launch, after all.
