Cyberpunk 2077 had a chaotic launch to say the least. In question, the many bugs affecting the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X | S, but also and above all an almost unplayable old gen version. Cornered, criticized, CD Projekt Red has therefore promised to do what is necessary to get everything back to normal. After two fixes, the studio announced this night the arrival of a big update which will be deployed within 10 days.
The announcement was made by Marcin Iwinski, the studio's co-founder.
After having once again apologized, the man admitted that despite the good feedback on the PC version, he recognized that the console version did not meet the desired quality standards.
Cyberpunk 2077 will improve in the coming weeks
Assuming his wrongs, he admits in the video having underestimated the scale of the task, not forgetting to recall that the world is currently going through one of the worst health episodes in its recent history. The Covid-19 has indeed forced CD Projekt Red, like other studios, to massively adopt telework, which inevitably has had repercussions on the development of Cyberpunk 2077.
But Iwinski has yet to say his last word. It also indicates that the developers are committed to fixing all bugs and crashes affecting the title. Several updates will therefore be deployed over the next few months to correct what may be.
There is more, however. Once patches are deployed, CD Projekt Red will focus on content, with free DLC. Iwinski does not give more information, but he promises to return to the subject in the coming months and once the situation has stabilized.
A first patch within 10 days, then another
Still, we won't need to wait months to see these famous fixes land. A first patch will indeed be deployed in the next ten days on all platforms. A second patch is also being finalized and will arrive in the weeks following the deployment of the first patch. At the same time, Iwinski also indicated that he was working closely with Sony to bring Cyberpunk 2077 back to the PlayStation Store .
Let us recall in passing that another patch is expected this year, a next gen patch which will allow Cyberpunk 2077 to take full advantage of PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X | S.
