As part of the same question, the board was asked how the game passed certification for Xbox and PlayStation, which appears to be based on trust with the console companies. “With regard to the certification process and the third parties,” Nowakowski explained, “this is definitely on our side. I can only assume that they trusted that we will fix the issues upon release and that this obviously did not come together exactly is. ” as we planned. “In a separate question, the board was asked if the company could have simply released a PC version of the game on December 10th and delayed a console release. “If we had decided that a day before the start, we might have only released the PC version,” said Nowakowski. He did not elaborate on when this discussion took place. However, Nowakowski further made it clear that it would have been impossible to release a next-gen-only version alongside the PC:
“”[Next-gen consoles] Get a completely different version of the game, so it’s not like we’ve decided at any point recently to flip the switch, so to speak, and switch from the old generation version to the next generation version and only at next to publish -gens. As you noticed, there is no such thing as a native next generation release. The game runs on Next-Gens and uses the power of Next-Gens, but it’s not like we had a next-gen version in hand and decided to keep it on the shelf. “
CD Projekt yesterday officially apologized for the subpar version of the game released on PS4 and Xbox One and informed customers that they could request refunds. After receiving the console version of the game late, we released a 4/10 review of the base console version that it “doesn’t even achieve the lowest technical quality one would expect, even when playing on lower-priced hardware . ” “.
