CD Projekt Red apologizes for a messy Cyberpunk 2077's launch, especially for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles, and announces that the team is working hard to patch everything up as soon as possible.

The heat around Cyberpunk 2077's launch is not burning down, but not for a good reason. The buggy and glitchy release of the most-anticipated game is still the main story in the industry. CD Projekt Red have released an apology this morning, in which they acknowledge all the drama with the game's version for the last-gen, which is the biggest problem here.

They start the apology with: "First of all, we would like to start by apologizing to you for not showing the game on base last-gen consoles before it premiered and, in consequence, not allowing you to make a more informed decision about your purchase. We should have paid more attention to making it play better on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.”

Millions of PlayStation 4 and Xbox One console owners are feeling deceived by CDPR because they didn't get a proper look at the game they were pre-ordering (never pre-order, some would dare to say) as CDPR didn't provide reviewers with the key for the last-gen version of the game.

The game was smudge city on next-gen too, but the situation is much better now with the release of update 1.04. In the apology letter, CDPR said that they will fix all the crashes and bugs and improve the overall experience of the game, and the next patch update is just around the corner, with a release planned in the next 7 days.

The game will get its first big patch in January with the second one to follow with a February release, as the developer promises that they'll work hard to polish out the last-gen version.

Still no word on the next-gen upgrade, which is expected, as the studio is probably fully focused on the damage control and patch updates.
