After Cyberpunk 2077 crashed and burned in December 2020, CD Projekt RED promises they are fully committed to the game and released a roadmap and developer video to express this message. According to the roadmap, the first big update for Cyberpunk 2077 will arrive within the next 10 days. A larger “more significant” update will then arrive in the weeks after. CDPR also says that the next-gen enhancement update won’t arrive until the second half of 2021.

CD Projekt RED did not share any specific details about the upcoming changes and what they plan on doing for the game. However, they did explain to fans how they managed to screw up the console launch.

Co-founder Marcin Iwinski released a 5-minute video where he shared details on Cyberpunk 2077’s launch and what exactly went wrong. Iwinski says that the board members are the final decision-makers and are solely to blame for the disastrous launch of the game. He pleads to fans to not blame any of the developers and teams for what happened.

Cyberpunk 2077 Commitment

Iwinski claims that the sheer size and scale of Cyberpunk 2077 was underestimated by the team. He claims that the developers also underestimated how much work would go into developing the game. He also blamed the COVID-19 work-from-home conditions saying that they were challenging for the team. He said:

“Despite good reviews on PC, the console version of Cyberpunk 2077 did not meet the quality standard we wanted it to meet. I and the entire leadership team are deeply sorry for this. We really believed we would deliver in the final days”

CD Projekt RED has also released a dedicated web page for the upcoming changes and “commitment”. In the FAQ, the developer highlights the concerns players may have surrounding the game. They also detail the quality gap between the PC and console version of the game and how this happened.

“We made it more difficult for ourselves by first wanting to make the game look epic on PCs and then adjusting it to consoles — especially old-gens. That was our core assumption. And things did not look super difficult at first, while we knew the hardware gap, ultimately, time has proven that we’ve underestimated the task.”

So what comes next? CD Projekt RED says that they are committed to fixing bugs and crashes across all the platforms. In addition, they will improve the console versions with future updates so players can “enjoy the game regardless of the platform.” However, this comes at a cost. CDPR has now delayed new content planned for Cyberpunk 2077. This includes the free and paid DLC as well as the next-gen enhancement upgrade.
