CD Projekt RED’s top executive said that Cyberpunk 2077 stability is now satisfactory. In comments made to attendees of the WSE (Warsaw Stock Exchange) Innovation Day, CDPR CEO Adam Kiciński said that the team is “constantly working” on patches to improve the game and declared that “We have already achieved a satisfactory level in this regard [of stability].”
These remarks come hot on the heels of the game’s controversial return to the PlayStation Store, which has been accompanied by a disclaimer that it will continue to experience technical issues on baseline PlayStation 4 consoles. There’s also the news that the special extended refund policy in place at the Xbox Store will be coming to an end.
“We have also been working on the overall efficiency, which we are also quite happy about,” Kiciński added. “Of course, we also removed bugs and glitches, and we will continue to do that. Over time, we will be introducing improvements to the general systems that players are paying attention to.”
It’s worth noting that eventually CDPR is going to want to release official updated versions of Cyberpunk 2077 for the new generation of consoles, so it is in its best interests to cleanse and restore the reputation of the game’s brand. The new generation releases are officially stated to be coming in 2021, but CD Projekt RED has not come forward with a more exact release window.
Take note that saying “Cyberpunk 2077 stability is satisfactory” is not the same as saying the game is “fixed.” That the abovementioned disclaimer warning remains on the PlayStation store speaks to that. Yes, I actually checked. So while Cyberpunk 2077 is in arguably better shape than it was — hold on, let me check my notes — over seven months ago it is nowhere close to rinsing out the unpleasantness of its launch.
