After seven long years, CD Projekt Red finally unveiled Cyberpunk 2077 to the entire world. Players explore the sprawling landscape of Night City in the year 2077, as you choose a life path to success. Even before launching last December 10, there’s a ton of hype surrounding the game despite getting pushed back a couple of times.
Now, some people are experiencing issues with even playing the game — specifically, last-gen console owners. It’s par for the course for new games to experience bugs and graphical hitches. However, some players on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One lament their inability to play the game properly because of it. From frame rate drops to textures not loading, they were hoping for a much better experience.
The developers heard you, and stepped in
Then, CD Projekt Red took notice and provided a statement addressing all of these concerns. Essentially, the statement is both an apology and an update for their much-anticipated release in 2020. As said in the statement, the developers felt they “should have paid more attention to make it play better” on last-gen consoles.
From that point on, they promised to provide regular updates for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions starting a few days ago. Over the next few days, they will deliver updates frequently to make the experience a little better. Although they pointed out that it won’t reflect the same performance as a high-end PC, they’re hoping it makes the last-gen console versions more playable.
However, they also realized that their lack of attention didn’t sit well with others. If they choose to return their copies, the company will refund them in full. Now, they advise people who wish to refund their copies to go through the proper channels.
Cyberpunk 2077 is currently available for the PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and the Xbox Series X|S.
