For those that are playing Cyberpunk 2077 currently – let’s hope that you are playing on optimized hardware. I say that solely based on the state that the recent release is on last-generation hardware. That concerns the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 alongside the newer iterations of Xbox One S, Xbox One X, and PlayStation 4 Pro. For many that reside on the older platform primarily, it is a rough experience.

Performance is evident alone as the framerate continues to tank below 30 frames per second on all platforms – that including the enhanced models. Additionally, resolution is also faulted with the graphical output hardly breaking 900p on base devices. Overall, the experience atop of constant stuttering and game-breaking bugs dilutes the experience many anticipated from the handfuls of presentations of the game leading to launch.

But in a new statement from CD Projekt Red, the firm dearly apologizes on behalf of how the game is currently on the last-generation systems in contrast to its successors – Xbox Series X|S & PlayStation 5.

“We would like to start by apologizing to you for not showing the game on base last-gen consoles before it premiered and, in consequence, not allowing you to make a more informed decision about your purchase,” CD Projekt Red tells in the letterhead .We should have paid more attention to making it play better on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

“We will fix bugs and crashes, and improve the overall experience. The first round of updates has just been released and the next one is coming within the next seven days. Expect more, as we will update frequently whenever new improvements are ready. After the holidays, we’ll continue working—we’ll release two large patches starting with Patch #1 in January. This will be followed by Patch #2 in February.”

Alike with the coming next-generation update that will be issued next year to namely consoles, patches for the game to resolve these apparent issues are also releasing in early 2021, CD Projekt Red states. Noted, many speculate that this comes as a result of the company’s stock dropping since Cyberpunk 2077 arrived to store shelves. Followers believe the gouging in value became from early complaints of the game on last-gen systems.

Niko Partners’ David Ahmad posted on Twitter illustrating the state of the firm’s stock since the game’s release dropping more than $4 USD since the release of Cyberpunk 2077. Elsewhere in recent news, CD Projekt Red released a new report which unveils pre-orders for the game already covered and surpassed the development budget for Cyberpunk 2077.
