Marcin Iwiński also reported that the studio is working hard to fix the Cyberpunk 2077 bugs.
As much as CD Project Red manages to figure out the significant number of flaws in Cyberpunk 2077, it is quite certain that the scandalous appearance of the adventure will not be forgotten by the video game industry for a long time to come. Regardless, of course, the studio doesn’t want to let them burn that they (especially on the original Xbox One and PlayStation 4) have an almost unenjoyable game on the market, so they’re working on a solution with steam power.
Marcin Iwiński, the founder and leader of the Polish team, has now released a video in which he first apologizes for the state in which the game was released and for keeping it secret until the last minute.
According to him, the console version was getting better day by day before its release, which is why the postponement of the press copies was postponed until the last moment, until December 8, exactly. It was obviously too late as it was impossible to make a quality critique of such a grandiose game during the release on December 10th.
Iwiński asks all players not to blame the developers for what happened, as they outperformed their efforts to get Cyberpunk 2077 completed on time; the responsibility was taken by him and the management of the studio. Complementing this, he also promised to avoid the crunch with all their might in the future – let’s add that promises of this kind had been made in the past, but as deadlines approached, the studio set them aside.
You can watch the video for a little over five minutes here:
In the second half of the statement, the studio manager also discusses what to expect in the coming times. First, within ten days, the promised first major fix pack, brought by patch 1.1, will arrive. This will be followed in a few weeks by 1.2, which together should weed out the most obvious and serious bugs in the game.
There are plans to release some free DLCs before the end of the year, in addition to this year, but unfortunately only the next-gen update for the game will arrive in the second half of 2021, which will also be released for free by the studio.
Although we still didn’t know exactly what was behind the game’s release in this state (of course we have hints about investor pressure and state aid framework constraints), a similar stand was already needed on the part of the studio, and in the past. based on their performance, we tend to believe they will fix the Cyberpunk 2077 soon.
