CD Projekt Red released a statement apologizing for not showing Cyberpunk 2077 on base last-gen consoles before it premiered and for not allowing fans to make a more informed decision about their purchase. The developer writes, “We should have paid more attention to making it play better on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.”
The team plans to fix the bugs and crashes over time, with the first round of updates just being released and the next scheduled for the next 7 days. They plan to push updates and new improvements as they are ready and will pick up development following the holidays on two large patches, the first scheduled for January and the second February.
The team notes that these patches should fix the prominent issues with the game running on last-gen consoles and will release information about each patch before it is released. They add that it won’t make the game look like it does on PC or next-gen consoles, but it will be better than it is now.
Additionally, those looking to refund their purchase digitally can contact the release PSN or Xbox online stores. Physical owners should first contact the retailer to return the game, and if that doesn’t work, they can contact [email protected], and they will try to assist with the process. This will be open until December 21.
The developer also adds the PC updates are on their way as well.
This comes after huge performance issues on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One version of the game. Textures pop-ins, low-res gunplay, missing text, or only a few examples. Hopefully, people get the game that they’ve been waiting for years for.
