Following the online release of the source code of the Sci-Fi title, various background on the development of Cyberpunk 2077. If we had already discovered how the title was initially conceived with a third-person view, here comes another rather curious detail reported on reddit.

Making his way through the twists and turns of the code of Cyberpunk 2077, users discovered how the developers of CD Projekt RED used several flags related to the complaints that the game would have included. Although most of these were part of the norm and related to sexual content, gore, drugs, religion and so on, one in particular caught the attention of the players who frequent the reddit pages.

As you can see through the screenshot that we have reported at the bottom of the news, the development team has drawn the flagWinnie the Poohto the complaints dedicated to the edition of Cyberpunk 2077 to be published in China. For the uninitiated, this is a reference to the fact that Disney’s well-known teddy bear was banned from China after memes likened him to President Xi Jinping (as an example, we have a censorship of Winnie the Pooh in Kingdom Hearts 3 in China).

Together with the compilation of the hilarious bugs, this is another goliardic and joking detail of the development of Cyberpunk 2077, but above all in this case we imagine that the development team would have preferred that the information did not make the rounds of the internet.

CD Projekt has confirmed that the next Cyberpunk 2077 patch will be released soon. However, it will not be a particularly full-bodied update, and it will not upset the current balance of the game.
