The news article discusses a problem in the game Cyberpunk 2077 and its Phantom Liberty expansion where players have to wait for an undetermined amount of time for certain quests to activate. This issue has persisted even after the game’s recent update. The article argues that while this waiting mechanic may be meant to encourage players to engage in side missions, it ultimately wastes their time and frustrates them. The author recounts their experience of waiting several in-game days or even weeks for a specific quest to activate and mentions that other players have also faced similar delays. The article concludes by stating that there is conflicting information on how to resolve this issue and that the game developer, CD Projekt Red, has been contacted for clarification.
In the expanded summary, the article highlights “The Killing Moon,” a quest in the Phantom Liberty expansion that requires players to wait for a phone call from Songbird. This waiting period is described as the longest in the author’s three years of playing Cyberpunk 2077. The author and other players attempted to find a solution to the delay but couldn’t identify a consistent trigger for the quest to progress. The article mentions that some players speculate that completing another quest called “Run This Town” might be a prerequisite, but the streamer Sam Greer was able to continue “The Killing Moon” without completing that quest. The article concludes by assuring players that they are not alone in facing this issue and that the quest is likely not bugged, although there is uncertain information on how to resolve the problem. CD Projekt Red has been contacted for further clarification.
