Cyberpunk 2077 Next-gen Update Will Arrive After Free DLC

Q: What are you going to do going forward to fix Cyberpunk 2077?

With nary a mention of the PlayStation Store delisting in the video and relegating the vague answer to the bottom of the FAQ, it feels like CD Projekt RED doesn't even have a broad timeframe for when the Cyberpunk 2077 PlayStation Store listing might return. Myself and the board are the final decision makers and it was our call to release the game.

In a video posted to Cyberpunk 2077's Twitter account, co-founder Marcin Iwiński addresses all of the issues surrounding Cyberpunk 2077. A few patches have been already released, but some players are still having problems here and there.

Q: What have you done since launch to make the game better?

Q: What was the main issue that made development for consoles that hard? Our plans for supporting Cyberpunk 2077 in the long-term are unchanged, and we will continue to introduce updates and patches to give all players across all consoles and PCs a better experience with the game.

Also in the statement are details on the technical issues that led to the game's poor performance and multiple delays. As we got closer to launch, we saw significant improvements each and every day, and we really believed we'd deliver in the final day zero update.

Cyberpunk 2077 launched for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC via Steam, Epic Games, and GOG, and Stadia on December 10, 2020. A large patch will be coming in the next ten days, with another large patch to follow "in the weeks after", along with more regular updates and improvements. After that, it looks like we'll be getting free DLCs sometime in the middle of 2021 and a free next-gen console update sometime around the third quarter. As many had suspected, Iwiński confirmed that the game was built for the PC and was backported to run on the previous generation consoles. Now, almost a month after the game was first released and then subsequently pulled, CD Projekt RED still can't tell us exactly when the game will be put back on the digital marketplace for Sony consoles. "Streaming is responsible for "feeding' the engine with what you see on screen, as well as the game mechanics", reads the statement". CD Projekt co-founder Marcin Iwiński says the Cyberpunk team is now working hard on fixing the most problematic bugs and crashing issues players are facing in the game, and that the DLC will only be coming once those updates have been made.
