I'm not sure why they feel the need to do this. Didn't they do that for Witcher 3 also? They released a trailer that supposedly had better graphics than what came out? Why do they think it's a good thing to work on this fake demo/trailer that they do not ultimately plan on giving to the consumer? How does that work out to benefit them in the end? It's straight up false advertising.
If they acted like a normal developer and spent more time working on the game and less on bs'ing the public, they might not have to go through with this kind of stuff. It's also odd because they seem like a nice developer once their product is out and stabilized. At least that was my impression from when I took ownership of Witcher 3 which was probably 2 years after release. I was left to experience a beautiful game that was running flawless, relatively bug free without me trying to push a bug or glitch. I wouldn't have a clue that they're ever involved in controversy.
I'm sure the same would happen with Cyberpunk 2077 for those that had no clue the game existed and pick it up in 2 years once it's stabilized a bit more. They'll be like, wow, this is a great game I missed out on launch, how did I miss this? lol.
