Cyberpunk 2077 “wasn’t ready” for PS4 and XBox One X, developers admit

Cyberpunk 2077 is easily the most hyped game of the year, and since its release last week, many have come to the conclusion that it wasn’t the monster it was billed for. After the share price fell over 50% yesterday, developer CD Projekt Red (CDPR) had a conference call with investors earlier this morning to see what had gone wrong.

Michal Nowakowski, SVP for business development at CDPR, had to admit that the company had focused its resources on the new generation consoles – X Box Series S / X and PS5. A quote from the call posted on Android Central said, “It’s more about us looking at the next generation PC and performance than the current generation, as mentioned earlier. We definitely haven’t spent enough time looking into it. I wouldn’t say we felt any external or internal pressure to start on that date – other than the normal pressure that is typical of any release. So that wasn’t the cause. “

Of course, this should not be confused with “no pressure at all”. As one of the biggest starting titles for the new generation. Devices and one of the main titles on Christmas lists this year, CDPR would have put a heavy strain on the industry if it had delayed further than the 21 days it already had. With that in mind, the pressure has been tremendous to get Cyberpunk into stores and online stores on time in 2077.

Cyberpunk 2077’s development was in full swing. CEO Marcin Iwiński stated that the PS4 and Xbox One X versions were being worked on until launch. “Unfortunately, this resulted in it being given to reviewers just a day before it was released, which was definitely too late and the media didn’t get a chance to properly review it. It wasn’t intended; We only fixed the game until the last moment. “

CDPR added that while it has already apologized for the bugs that made the game look like an early iteration of Apple Maps, there are no special refund procedures and that dissatisfied users must contact their dealer or online store in the usual way .

The best way to experience Cyberpunk 2077 as it should be is to get yourself a new console. These links will tell you where to find PS5 and Xbox Series S / X inventory as soon as it comes in. Alternatively, since Google went out of their way to remind us, it may work great in Stadia (possibly in a OnePlus 8T Cyberpunk 2077 edition?)
