CD Projekt Red Officially Apologizes for ‘Cyberpunk 2077’ Bugs and Glitches
Amidst continuous refunds and working on getting the game back on the PlayStation Store after being pulled one week after its release, CD Projekt Red has issued an official apology and Q&A regarding Cyberpunk 2077‘s bugs and glitches.
In a video, CD Projekt Red co-founder Marcin Iwiński apologized for the issues gamers faced with the launch of its highly-anticipated title. Noting the state of the game that received a slew of negative press, Iwiński shared a road map for updates coming.
For those looking for answers as to why the PC version of Cyberpunk 2077 performed so much better than the console releases, Iwiński reveals that they had to scale down the game to meet restrictions, especially on last-gen hardware. “We made it even more difficult for ourselves by first wanting to make the game look epic on PCs and then adjusting it to consoles—especially old-gens…That was our core assumption. And things did not look super difficult at first, while we knew the hardware gap, ultimately, time has proven that we’ve underestimated the task.”
CD Projekt Red’s timeline notes that the first major patch for Cyberpunk 2077 is set to arrive in the next ten days with an even larger patch to follow “the weeks after.” The fixes will delay the first set of free DLC to sometime later this year and the Sony PlayStation 5 and Microsoft Xbox Series X/S releases will come near the second half of 2021.
In the accompanying Q&A posted on the CD Projekt Red’s website, the developer notes, “The team is working to bring relevant fixes to the game without any obligatory overtime. Continuing to say, “Avoiding crunch on all of our future projects is one of our top priorities.”
