CD Projekt Red has finally made an official apology video regarding the bugs and console quality of its hit RPG Cyberpunk 2077.
The video is helmed by co-founder Marcin Iwiński, who apologizes for the state of the game, asks fans not to condemn the developers of the game, and also shares a roadmap for updates to the game coming in the future. To quote:
“Every extra day that we worked on the day zero update brought visible improvement [to the console version]—that’s why we started sending console review keys on the 8th December, which was later than we had originally planned.
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.”
Here’s the roadmap, which basically contains Patch 1.1 and Patch 1.2, as well as “multiple updates and improvements”, “free DLC”, and “free next-gen console update” in respective order.
“The team is working to bring relevant fixes to the game without any obligatory overtime. Avoiding crunch on all of our future projects is one of our top priorities.”
Good luck with that.
