Cyberpunk 2077 developer CD Projekt Red has issued an official apology to players who were disappointed with the game’s performance on last-generation consoles such as PS4 and Xbox One.
The most anticipated game title of 2020, the video game released last week, quickly came under fire for numerous bugs across all versions, but mostly because of how poorly the game performed on that older console hardware.
The company didn’t help with handing out PC copies to reviewers and game analyzers just days before release, the only platform that has few issues with the title so far. As a result, the first gameplay footage from the older consoles didn’t arrive until after the game launched.
Released on the company’s official site and through their social media outlets, the statement offers an apology “for not showing the game on the latest generation of base consoles before it premiered and, as a result, not allowing you make an informed decision about your purchase … We should have put more effort into making it play better on PlayStation and Xbox One. ”
The company promises to fix bugs and crashes to “improve the overall experience” after the first round of updates. A second set of updates will be released in the coming week, with more to follow in January and February. All platforms including PC will continue to receive updates to fix the bugs and performance issues.
