Cyberpunk 2077 includes many references to other titles and popular media, a fact that one fan has discovered after finding a pizza on the roof of a garage, a seemingly clear nod to the hit television show Breaking Bad. Cyberpunk 2077 brings to life a unique futuristic city that is grounded in reality, including cars, locations, and events that have happened in real life. As such, it should come as no surprise that the title references popular culture frequently, from dramas like Breading Bad to sitcoms like The Office.
CD Projekt Red, despite a rocky start, has worked to produce great content for fans. A recent DLC and the release of Cyberpunk: Edgerunners have both demonstrated the studio’s desire to pursue quality in the Cyberpunk universe. The Breaking Bad reference in-game is simply one of many hidden objects sprinkled throughout Night City.
Reddit user AmericaLover1776_ recently posted a photo to the Cyberpunk subreddit that shows a pizza on the roof of a garage. Many players are noting that the pizza is an obvious reference to Breaking Bad season three when Walter throws a pizza on the roof of the White residence after a dispute with Skyler. Fans have been quick to point out that there are many other hidden items in Cyberpunk, from comic book heroes to famous sitcoms.
Indeed, Cyberpunk 2077 also references The Office and other shows. Fans have been theorizing that there are so many Easter eggs in the title because CD Projekt Red was attempting to make the future world feel shaped by the modern world while also providing interesting things for players to discover. Whatever the reason, Night City is ripe for exploration. That being said, not everything in-game is a reference. There are many unique things for players to find which will impact quests, change dialogue options, or lead them to future missions.
As CD Projekt Red works to redeem Cyberpunk 2077, fans can already jump into Night City and see the detailed work that was put into the title. Though Cyberpunk 2077 certainly had a rocky start, it’s hard to deny that the gaming studio tried its best to create something truly unique and enjoyable. Now, as the title slowly improves, fans have more opportunities to appreciate the impressive work that CD Projekt Red has done on their latest and most expansive game. Hopefully, there will be more good content for fans to enjoy in the future.
Cyberpunk 2077 is available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
