It's been a pretty turbulent first month for Cyberpunk 2077. The game has come with a lot of problems for PS4 / Xbox One players, and it's time for lawsuits with developer investigations into fiascos.
CD Projekt Red has issued several apologies for the problems in the previous period, along with opening the process of unconditional refund, but it has never talked in detail about the problems and what went wrong.
In a five-minute video titled “Our Commitment,” studio leader Marcin Ivinski took the blame on himself and the board of directors, as they made the direct decision to release Cyberpunk 2077 on December 10th. Ivinski apologized for the problem, saying that it was never planned for something like this to happen and that he would do his best to restore the players' trust.
The video went on to talk about what led to a catastrophic performance on older console versions during development, and why the console version for reviewers was only sent on December 8th. It was explained how they worked on the first update until the last moment, which was supposed to eliminate all the problems, but that did not happen, because it was simply not possible to overcome all the shortcomings, especially since it is still done from home.
The first major update with updates will be released in 10 days, until January 25, while the second update will have more significance and will appear in the coming weeks.
The official site dedicated to getting Cyberpunk 2077 back on track has a FAQ list with all the important questions and answers. Players can expect both the first free DLC add-ons and a free upgrade to the next-gen console this year, while chances are slim that a bigger add-on with a new story will come out in the next 11 months.
