CD Project Red began the year with an apology and a commitment to fix the game he sent out last year.
Cyberpunk 2077 CD developer Project Red has released a video apologizing to explain how and why the studio decided to send the PS4 and Xbox One versions in the condition they were in.
The studio also released updates to the promised free DLCs and PS5 and Xbox Series X / S fixes.
In a video message given by CDPR co-founder Marcin Iwinski, the director began by acknowledging that the decision to supply versions of the console was finally made by management. According to Iwinski, a number of issues that arose at launch were not observed during testing.
Iwinski also reiterated that CDPR was not trying to mislead its console audience about the state of the game, but simply wanted to put as much work as possible into optimizing those versions that led to the launch, so the code to review the console came very late.
A particular challenge was to make the streaming work well on the latest generation of hardware, which Cyberpunk 2077 is clearly still struggling with. Nevertheless, Iwinski confirmed that two major revisions are declining earlier this year, the first of which is issued within ten days.
Throughout 2021, in addition to the promised free DLCs, you can also expect more fixes and quick fixes. As for free next-generation upgrades, they will instead arrive in the second half of this year.
In frequently asked questions on the game’s official website, the studio also addressed concerns that developers of Cyberpunk 2077 would have to crush it again to provide these fixes.
“The team strives to make appropriate corrections to the game without mandatory overtime. Avoiding cramps in all of our future projects is one of our top priorities, ”the studio said, though it should be noted that shrinkage in the gaming industry is rarely formally required.
As for when gamers can expect the digital version of the PS4 to return to the PlayStation Store, the studio has made no commitment.
“We are working on fixes and updates and, together with the Sony Cyberpunk 2077, return to the PlayStation Store as soon as possible,” CDPR wrote.
“I would like to conclude this video by ensuring that we take the whole situation very seriously and work hard to rectify it,” Iwinski concluded.
“The guiding principles of our company are still at the core of what we do. We still want to create amazing games and have open communication with you, our players. For now, we are in direct focus to make a strong effort to ensure that you enjoy Cyberpunk 2077 regardless of platform. “
