Cyberpunk 2077 Clone Was Removed from Steam
The developers from Cyberpath studio promised to send buyers a real copy of Cyberpunk 2077 as a gift
Controversial game Cyberpunk 2069, which appeared on Steam at the end of June, was pulled from Valve’s online store. If you try to search now for the title, you will get no results. There is a page left on SteamDB, though.
When the strange title got in sight of the gaming community, users thought the title was an obvious fraud and a scum. Everything looked like the developers just wanted to profit from careless people who would accidentally buy their product instead of CDPR’s Cyberpunk 2077.
The developers also promised to give a real copy of Cyberpunk 2077 to those who had bought their title before July 22. Also, the team said they would present the collector's edition of CDPR’s game to the author of the funniest Steam review.
Judging by gameplay videos, the whole title looks just like a set of default assets. It isn’t clear what goal the developer had pursued, but they got their hype.
The prime cause of the removal still isn’t clear. As the TechRaptor’s contributor said, the developers stopped sailing the game at their will.
Despite the precedent with Cyberpunk 2069, there are still games like Cyberprank Girls 2077 on Steam referencing to the original title. The latter will arrive on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on April 16, 2020.
