CD Projekt asks people not to stream Cyberpunk 2077 before launch

Polish games firm CD Projekt has issued a warning to those thinking of making Cyberpunk 2077 content before its release.

In a post on Twitter, the firm said that it wanted to make sure gamers could enjoy the sci-fi RPG without it being spoiled for them. There are already reports of the game being available in the wild before its December 10th release.

CD Projekt also says it will send MAX-TAC after those who put up videos, but these are actually a group from the Cyberpunk.

"We're getting closer and closer to launch and chances are some of you will get your hands on a copy of Cyberpunk 2077 before release day," the studio said. "However difficult this might be for us to achieve, our ambition is for gamers all across the world to have the same—spoiler free—experience at the time the game releases.

"This is why we kindly ask you NOT TO stream/let's play, or release any similar content before December 9th, 12pm CET/3 am PST. We will send MAX-TAC (you know, the guys who take down videos) after everyone who does."

Cyberpunk 2077 is set to release on December 10th. CD Projekt is supporting influencers by allowing them to disable some of the game's licensed tracks in order to avoid a DMCA takedown strike.
