Cyberpunk 2077 is the biggest game of the year. Sadly, not everyone’s having a great time with it. The much-delayed game is still riddled with bugs and technical issues, especially on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Developer CD Projekt Red issued a statement apologizing for “not showing the game on base last-gen consoles before it premiered. […] We should have paid more attention to making it play better on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.”

Aside from an apology, the statement bows to fix bugs and improve the game. An update has already been released, including a fix to the rapidly blinking lights from using Braindance or when a certain character appears that can cause seizures in those who have epilepsy.
Two large patches are expected to arrive after the holidays, one in January 2021 and the second in February. These patches should “fix the most prominent problems gamers are facing on last-gen consoles.” The statement also promises to issue refunds for both digital and physical copies through December 21 (though physical refunds should always be done through the retailer first).
Despite its many delays, clearly the game wasn’t quite ready to be launched on what are now last-gen consoles. The PC version appears to be much more stable, though you’ll need decent equipment to run it well.
Cyberpunk 2077 is rated M for Mature.
