Another day and yet another controversial scenario for CD Projekt RED’s Cyberpunk 2077. But this time, it’s got something to do with China!
Seems like there’s no end of problems for Cyberpunk 2077, come what may. It has been revealed that the game used the “Winnie the Pooh” label to censor its files in China.
‘Cyberpunk 2077’ and the “Winnie the Pooh” controversy
CD Projekt RED seems to be in trouble, once again, thanks to the unfortunate leaks coming out lately. It may be due to the stolen source codes as well, related to CP77.
Anyways, coming onto the current controversial situation for Cyberpunk 2077.
Well, as per the leaked source codes, new information has come out in public. The developer used a tag called “Winnie the Pooh” to flag content that needed censor for the title’s China launch.
This could prove to be highly problematic for CD Projekt RED. Even more than the recently leaked montage video comprising of the many internal bugs in Cyberpunk 2077.
“Winnie the Pooh” is not liked in China at all, especially by President Xi Jinping. Using it is considered a serious offense.
Now CDPR’s usage of the label to refer to China may not end up well with the country’s government. And considering the present unfortunate phase of the Polish developer, it may happen soon, if noticed.
It appears like there will be a lot of other unknown details coming out soon due to the leaked source codes.

What’s the current status of CDPR’s open-world title?
Well, keeping the controversial aspect aside, after six months, the game is looking quite good now. Yes, it’s yet to get fully optimized in its entirety, but it’s on the right path.
Thanks to the major updates and patches, CP77 has become somewhat playable on past gen consoles.
However, it’s been a long time since CD Projekt RED released a significant update for the open-world game.
Although it has many plans for the Night City saga in the future, there are lots of DLCs scheduled to arrive in the coming months. Some of them will also include Panam’s downloadable content.
Moreover, avid Cyberpunk 2077 fans are also hoping for a dedicated DLC for Judy and Jackie because both are among the most popular characters in the game’s campaign.
The sci-fi, dystopian title is now available for PC, PS4, Xbox One, Stadia. Its PS5 and Xbox Series X|S ports are still in development.
What are your thoughts on this game from CD Projekt RED? Do you think it can still become a masterpiece despite the inevitable issues?
