The developers behind Cyberpunk 2077 are expressing immense gratitude as the game receives 'Overwhelmingly Positive' reviews on Steam, a significant improvement from its initial reception. The game, which encountered a rough start upon its 2020 release, has witnessed a remarkable transformation, as evidenced by its recent Steam reviews. Currently, it holds an 'Overwhelmingly Positive' rating based on the feedback from the last month, signaling that 95% of the 6,913 reviews received during this period reflect a positive gaming experience.

Marcin Momot, a community manager at CD Projekt, shared his heartfelt thanks on Twitter, emphasizing the importance of this turnaround and the faith he always had in achieving such a recovery. Similarly, quest director Pawel Sasko expressed his deep appreciation for the community's support and the second chance given to the game. Both remarks underline the team's dedication and belief in their project despite its rocky beginning.

Player testimonials further illustrate the game's improvement, with one reviewer highlighting over 125 hours of engaging gameplay that encompasses thrilling combat, compelling storytelling, and breathtaking art direction. Another praises the immersive experience fostered by the game’s forced first-person perspective, suggesting that any initial issues have been fully addressed and surpassed.

Admittedly, Cyberpunk 2077’s launch was less than stellar for CD Projekt, but the subsequent years have seen a significant overhaul in the game’s quality and reception. The joint-CEO of CD Projekt recently expressed his contentment with the current state of the RPG, hinting at the culmination of a redemption journey that began shortly after the release. The game’s overall 'Very Positive' rating, based on over 650,651 reviews, reflects a broader appreciation within the gaming community, although reaching an 'Overwhelmingly Positive' overall rating remains a goal.

Developing Cyberpunk 2077's expansive open world represented a "significant challenge" for CD Projekt RED, particularly in capturing the essence and scale of American cityscapes, a task they have since navigated with commendable success.
