Cyberpunk 2077 CD Projekt RedCyberpunk 2077 has finally been released a few days ago and, although many are enjoying it fully on PC and next-generation consoles, owners of old-gen consoles have complained about the problems that plague their versions, especially in terms of stability. With the latest update, the situation has also improved on PS4 and Xbox One, but players continue to request improvements from a technical point of view for a product judged to be qualitatively too distant from that presented on the most modern machines.

CDProjekt RED promptly decided to assume its responsibilities apologizing for the inconveniences and illustrating the Cyberpunk 2077 update plan aimed at fixing the problems:

 

"Dear players, first of all, we would like to start by apologizing for not showing the game on an old-gen base console before its release and, consequently, not allowing you to make a more informed decision about your purchase. We should have paid more attention to make it work better on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Secondly, we will fix bugs and crashes and improve the overall gaming experience. The first round of updates has just been released and the next one will arrive within the next 7 days. Expect more, as we will update frequently as new enhancements become available. After the holidays, we will continue to work: we will be releasing two big patches starting with “Patch 1” in January. This will be followed by "Patch 2" in February. Together, these updates are expected to solve the most important problems that gamers face on last generation consoles. We will inform you about the contents of each patch before they are released. They won't make the game on old-gen seem to work like it does on a high-end PC or next-gen console (Cyberpunk 2077 versions for Xbox Series X and PS5 have significantly improved since the last patch, ed.), but it will be closer to that experience than it is now.

Finally, we always want everyone who buys our games to be happy with their purchase. We would appreciate it if you give us a chance, but if you are not happy with the game as it is on console and don't want to wait for updates, you can choose to refund your copy. For copies purchased digitally, use the refund system of respectively PSN o Xbox. For physical versions, first try to get a refund at the store where you purchased the game. If this is not possible, please contact us at helpmerefund@cdprojektred.com and we will try our best to help you. You can contact us starting today until 21 December 2020.

Humbly, Marcin Iwiński, Adam Kiciński, Adam Badowski, Michał Nowakowski, Piotr Nielubowicz, Piotr Karwowski

PS: Of course, PC players will also receive constant updates to improve the game.

CDProjekt RED therefore makes mea culpa for not showing the gameplay of Cyberpunk 2077 in the old-gen version before the launch and for the many problems of crash and frame rate dancer that afflicted them in the very first days. The choice now remains for players to grant further confidence to the Polish software house and wait for the two (presumably substantial) patches at the beginning of 2021 or take advantage of the option to request a refund.
