CD Projekt RED once again apologizes for Cyberpunk 2077, with the message that they are determined to fix the game.
A new, so to speak, apology video was shared by CD Projekt RED co-founder Marcin Iwinski, who acknowledged that the studio underestimated the task of bringing Cyberpunk 2077 to previous generations of consoles and promised that work on the game will continue.
The published video also addresses questions about why console review codes were distributed later than PC. In addition, a new DLC roadmap has been shared, pushing the planned next-generation console update to a time in the second half of 2021.
When Will Cyberpunk 2077 Fix?
If you recall, Cyberpunk 2077 reviews were controversial. There is a sharp difference between PC and console reviews. The PC version had a total score of 86/100 in Metacritic, while 56 points for PlayStation 4 and 61 points for Xbox One. The fact that PC review keys were sent before console codes also made some fans think the studio was intentionally trying to hide things that would get poor performance.
“As for the review process for consoles, at the same time that the PC code was sent, we were still working hard to improve the quality of the game on older generation consoles,” says Iwinski. Iwinski adds that a noticeable improvement is achieved with every extra day they worked for the first-day update, and therefore began to send console codes for reviews on December 8, that is, later than planned.
The developments also seem to have forced CD Projekt to reconsider its short-term DLC plans. While the promised free DLC is still on its way, the priority has shifted the game to the fix. The next generation console update has also been thrown forward. The studio emphasizes that they are also working to bring Cyberpunk 2077 back to PlayStation Store as soon as possible.
