CD Projekt comes out of its silence. One month after the launch of Cyberpunk 2077, the Polish studio finally wanted to explain. It must be said that the development team was particularly expected at the turn, especially with regard to the many bugs that tarnished the playability of the game.
A visibly too ambitious project
It may sound sad to say, but it would seem that Cyberpunk 2077 failed to keep all of its promises. The errors followed one another, and even led to many refunds, especially on PS4 and Xbox One.
That’s why last night Marcin Iwiński, member of the management of CD Projekt, spoke and explained himself in video. More than just a speech, the speech quickly turned into a real public apology.
I and the entire management team are very sorry, and I take public responsibility for it here. Please do not blame our teams.
Subsequently, the co-founder of CD Projekt admits to having underestimated the technical difficulties linked to the creation of such a vast universe. He takes as a witness the current-gen consoles (PS4 and Xbox One). These were to be the last link in the chain, with the studio preferring to focus on the PC version of the game first.
It didn’t seem that complicated at first. We knew the technological gaps, but I think time has proven that we underestimated the task.
These development problems explain in particular the late sending of console versions of Cyberpunk 2077 to the press. All in the midst of a health crisis, forcing the studio to adapt to the harsh reality of remote development work.
Focus on the future
The mistakes of the past can no longer be changed … CD Projekt therefore only has to look to the future. This will happen above all through a first update which will arrive in ten days. Another will follow in February, always with the aim of improving the stability of the game.
When it comes to DLCs, the development team admits to preferring to focus primarily on improving the gaming experience. We should therefore find “the rain of free DLC” for spring and summer.
Finally, Iwiński reminds that PS5 and Xbox Series versions are still planned for Cyberpunk 2077. They should also land at the end of 2021, in the form of a free update for those who already have the game in their possession.
