For a game that was anticipated by many for over 7 years, the launch of Cyberpunk 2077 has sure been a controversial one. As of this writing, Cyberpunk 2077 has been out for 4 days and many have had criticisms of the performance when it comes to the many bugs and glitches they’re experiencing. Last-Gen Console Players have had it the worst out of anyone.
People who’ve played Cyberpunk 2077 on last-gen consoles (Xbox One & PS4) have reported terrible framerate, graphics that don’t suffice to what was shown in videos, and even more bugs and glitches than PC and current-gen players are experiencing. The state this game was released in is a sign that this game wasn’t ready and that the three delays it already had simply weren’t enough. The restrictive review requirements where early reviewers couldn’t show any of their footage in their review was worrying enough. To top it off, no console review codes were sent out before launch. The red flags were there and it’s led to a lot of frustration from people, especially those playing on last-gen.
CD Projekt Red simply couldn’t ignore all of this controversy and they responded to all of this in Social Media post apologizing for the state Cyberpunk 2077 was released in.
Cyberpunk 2077 is definitely being enjoyed by tons of people but most are in agreement that the tons of issues plaguing the games’ release can’t be dismissed. CD Projekt Red has a tough couple of months on hand when it comes to fixing the good-will with consumers because so many aspects of this launch were a complete mess.
Cyberpunk 2077 is available NOW on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Google Stadia, & PC.
