Cyberpunk 2077 was one of the most highly-anticipated games of 2020. The game was announced a while ago and based on the concept, premise, and footage, it was understandable that many gamers were really looking forward to the game, but unfortunately, even after a series of delays, the game ended up being a bit of a hot mess, especially for console gamers.
So much so that Sony started to issue refunds for PS4 and PS5 gamers who were having less-than-ideal experiences. The game’s developer, CD Projekt, has since published a blog post along with a video apology from the company’s co-founder, Marcin Iwinski, who has accepted the responsibility for the game’s issues and has asked gamers not to blame the developers who worked on the game.
According to the video, Iwinski said that they had underestimated how difficult it was to make a game optimized for PC that would also run just as well on previous-gen consoles like the PS4 and Xbox One. He also claims that during testing, they did not encounter the issues that players had previously faced, and that as the game got closer to launch, the improvements were significant enough for them to believe that they could have it all done in a day zero update.
Iwinski stated that the final decision to release the game fell on him and the board and added, “I assure you that we will do our best to regain your trust.”
