Cyberpunk 2077: "Didn't really care about last-gen consoles"

Cyberpunk 2077: Didn't really care about last-gen consoles
Since the release of the role-playing game Cyberpunk 2077 last week, the responsible development studio CD Projekt RED has been confronted not only with a wave of euphoria, but above all with a huge shit storm from the ranks of the community. This mainly refers to the desperate state of the game for the last-gen consoles PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. These versions have to struggle with numerous problems such as bugs, clipping errors and crashes on the basic consoles. In addition, there is a low resolution, low frame rates and popping and washed-out textures.

Logically, the fans are correspondingly angry and have put CD Projekt RED both in need of explanation and under pressure. For example, an extraordinary supervisory board meeting took place yesterday, at which several leading employees had to ask themselves some equally direct and unpleasant questions - with some very interesting answers I took care of the last-gen version of Cyberpunk 2077 (buy now € 54.99) and instead focused too much on the PC version.

"We were too focused on PC performance focused and not really bothered with the last-gen consoles. There wasn't a lot of pressure to get the game out. "

In addition, CD Projekt RED stated that it would have made no difference to the state of the release version if the number of available employees had been greater.

"No, it was too late, to bring in more people and it wouldn't have helped. "

Has Quality Control Failed?

Another question arose as to how the last-gen version of Cyberpunk 2077 could even have successfully passed the quality controls and certification of Microsoft and Sony, if the problems were so obvious. CD Projekt RED takes all the blame for this, as they had promised to fix the versions for the PS4 and Xbox One in time for the release.

"It's up to us. Sony and Microsoft had hoped that we will fix the game for release. That is solely due to CD Projekt RED. "

One of the questioners was skeptical whether the last-gen version will be as good as many fans expected after the promised updates. However, CD Projekt RED wants to do everything in its power to improve the state of the game significantly, even if no next-gen feel is to be expected on the old consoles.

"We plan to update the game with the upcoming improvements to a much better state ... don't expect next-gen performance. It will be a playable game without glitches and crashes. "

In response to a more precise question about the state of Cyberpunk 2077 for the improvements, the team gave a more specific description. But we will wait in vain for a price reduction for the console version.

"The game will then no longer have crashes. The primary bugs will be fixed. The performance will be improved. The game is currently playable. It is not that it won't start or won't be playable. It is clear that it is far from being satisfactory. But it is not that it will not start. We had previously stated that you can't get PC or Next -Gen performance. We have no plans to change the price of the game. "

Is the current chaos messing up your plans for the future?

In addition, CD Projekt RED explained what the current problem means for the future of Cyberpunk 2077. At the moment the focus is solely on improving the state of the game via updates and regaining the trust of the fans, which has been destroyed in many places. The team will probably only be able to foresee more precisely towards the beginning of next year whether and what effects all of this will have on the planned DLCs and the multiplayer part.
