Cyberpunk 2077 Is just days away from release, and Polygon & game journalists are going after fans for supporting the game.
Actual headline from Polygon: It sucks that Cyberpunk 2077’s edgelord marketing worked so well
The game’s Twitter account swaps jokes with Elon Musk, and despite tech billionaire Musk fitting the clichéd description of many cyberpunk villains, both Musk and Cyberpunk 2077 share a similar online presence, stoking controversy and gaining legions of loyal defenders with every tweet. The game’s marketing has a Fred Durst-esque faux edginess persona that has defined the conversation around the game. Cyberpunk 2077 already has one of the 20 most-followed gaming subreddits, and it’s not even out yet. CD Projekt Red has got everybody talking about this game, though not always for the right reasons.
