Basically, the studio has hit big financial troubles, they aren’t giving details but they’re trying to raise funds to finish development. They weren’t even able to finish a trailer for The Game Awards.
And if you don’t know why this is a good thing, it’s because the director was a gater with horrifying opinions about women and human reproduction who somehow managed to get into a major place of power in a game studio to make a cyberpunk game about why socialism is bad and destroys art (I’m dead serious) after taking part in a massive harassment campaign, and then right after a trailer went out at E3, the internet realized that GG connection and interest in this project died MASSIVELY.
Sucks for the team, but a terrible human being doesn’t get the fame that would allow him to harm more people and there’s a fun bit or irony in an Objectivist pleading for money from other people.
Please just go play Void & Meddler and the Shadowrun games from Harebrained Schemes, heard great things about Localhost. Dex is messy but does have actual themes of rebelling against oppressive systems. All of them are better than whatever this game would or might end up being because the founding theme isn’t the exact opposite idea of what cyberpunk is.
