‘Cyberpunk 2077’ Bugs Allegedly Covered Up By Third-Party QA Company, Report Claims

‘Cyberpunk 2077’ Bugs Allegedly Covered Up By Third-Party QA Company, Report Claims

A whistleblower has released a 72 page report chronicling Cyberpunk 2077's QA issues.

Cyberpunk 2077 appears to have finally won fans over thanks to its recent new-gen update but upon release, CD Projekt Red’s latest title was a glitchy and buggy mess.

Shortly after Cyberpunk 2077’s release, the game was partly pulled from sale as work got underway to address the title’s plethora of problems. CDPR vowed to “never give up” on the game despite an 80 percent drop in player count shortly after release. Many of the game’s issues have been put down to crunch, but a new report suggests an altogether different reason.

Netflix have released a new teaser trailer for upcoming anime Cyberpunk Edgerunners. Take a look below.

As reported by Forbes, an anonymous whistleblower recently sent a 72 page document to YouTuber Upper Echelon Gamers reporting on Cyberpunk 2077’s issues. Amongst the accusations made in the document, the whistleblower claims that a quality assurance company was responsible for the game’s many bugs and glitches after they lied to CDPR.

Quantic Lab is the QA company in question. According to the whistleblower, Quantic Lab lied to CDPR about the number of people they had working on Cyberpunk 2077 as they didn’t want to lose the contract. In addition to this, Quantic Lab allegedly said the team was made up of senior staff when it was in fact largely junior staff with less than six months experience.

The report goes on to claim that Quantic Lab had a daily quota of reported bugs which meant that CDPR ended up with thousands of pointless bug reports, detracting their attention from the game breaking issues.

Neither Quantic Lab or CDPR have responded to the report but it certainly poses some interesting questions. Upper Echelon Gamers’ full debrief of the report delves into the specifics, using what appears to be internal information. Whatever went down, I think we’re all glad that Cyberpunk 2077 is finally in a good place.
