Not every video game is lucky enough to reach its full potential let alone make any kind of difference in the market. This is either because the developers are too inexperienced with the concepts or the publishers that lord over them prioritized monetization and releases over quality control.

The result is a title that’s either broken, half-baked, or live serviceable to the point that the in-game content feels sparse in comparison. It’s sad, especially considering most of these titles were practically one tweak away from being award winners.

However, thanks to the commitment of their respected studios, these games have received major updates that are turning their disposition almost completely around. Hence, they are on the road to recovery and could have a second chance at great things. Here is a list of a few making a change in 2021.


‘Warcraft III: Reforged’

For the past few years, legendary game publisher Blizzard has been on a slippery slope when it comes to handling its own releases. Not even a remastered title seems possible for the company as evident by ‘Warcraft III: Reforged.’ This timeless RTS saw its legacy uprooted by poor design choices that made even hardcore fans request refunds. Fortunately, the team is committed to reworking and polishing it until it looks and plays as it should. And it sure looks that way.


‘Cyberpunk 2077’

After years of hype and anticipation, ‘Cyberpunk 2077’ was released in late 2020. But it was nothing more than a polished turd from a shady CD Projekt, leading to one of the biggest scandals in the industry. It wasn’t a good look for ‘The Witcher’ dev and so work needed to be done to salvage the trust of consumers. Now, what started as the biggest slap to the face is on its way to eventually become the title it was destined to be in accordance with the quality of life roadmap laid out ahead.
