The Cyberpunk 2077, released last Thursday, was a bumpy launch. After critics discovered that some scenes could cause epileptic seizures, they finally first checked the console version running on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The result was not very good.
CD Projekt Red has issued a statement apologizing for not displaying the Cyberpunk 2077 running on the Xbox One and PS4 in response to criticisms of the game’s performance on the latest generation consoles. It’s also unfortunate if the player can request a refund for the game.
“First, we apologize for not seeing the game on the final-generation console of the base before it premiered. As a result, we can’t make more informed decisions about purchasing.” Said the statement. “We should have paid more attention to better play on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.”
Following this, CDPR promised to fix a number of bugs in Cyberpunk 2077 and improve the overall experience. One patch has already been released to address urgent issues such as the brain dance scene that can trigger epilepsy, but another patch arrives within 7 days and two large patches It will arrive in January and February, respectively. “These together should solve the most prominent problems gamers face with the latest generation of consoles,” CDPR explained. “They don’t make the latest generation of games look like they’re running on high-spec PCs or next-generation consoles, but they’ll be closer to the experience than they are today.”
However, for those who don’t want to wait for the patch, CDPR says they can choose a refund (some have already started with PS4, but now it’s official). For digital copies, you’ll need to use the PSN or Xbox refund system, but for physical copies, you’ll need to get a refund from the store where you purchased it.
It’s also worth noting that CDPR continues to improve the PC version of the game along with the console, as shown at the bottom of the statement.

Of course, this is promising news for those who are currently dissatisfied with their version of the game, but the Cyberpunk 2077 development team seems to be spending a lot of effort fixing all these issues. is. CDPR has already been accused of crunching the team for most of the year, asking developers to work in a six-day week from September due to many delays in Cyberpunk 2077. The news that some more patches are needed to fix the game raises the question of whether it’s serious or not. The crunch will last for several months after its launch.
