Cyberpunk 2077 for PS5 and Xbox Series X / S may not release in 2021 as originally planned, Game Spot reports. This was announced by Michal Novakovsky, Vice President of CD Projekt RED for Business Development.
According to him, the studio has not yet decided on an exact release date. Most likely, several factors converged here: the abundance of bugs for the current generation and the low distribution of the Xbox Series X / S and PS5 consoles themselves, especially in the conditions of the latter’s shortage.
At the same time, even the version with backward compatibility will work better on nextgens than on PS4 and Xbox One. This is most likely related to frame rates and load times, although specific improvements have not been detailed. At the same time, the console versions are still inferior to the PC version due to outdated textures and models.
Sony Started Refunding Cyberpunk 2077
Sony has begun returning money for Cyberpunk 2077, according to one Reddit user.
According to the author, after contacting Sony support, he was able to return the funds spent on the purchase of the game, and Cyberpunk 2077 was removed from the library and from his PlayStation 4. Many portal users confirmed that they also managed to issue a refund, but some are not known reasons were refused.
Recall that Cyberpunk 2077 has many technical problems. Patches are released regularly, but the game is still unstable.
The game was released simultaneously in all countries on PC and older generation consoles – PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. On the next generation consoles – PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series – the game is available through backward compatibility.
Named the most anticipated game on Steam since Cyberpunk 2077 release
Cyberpunk 2077, which has long been at the top of the list of the most anticipated PC games on Steam, has now been replaced by the action-horror Dying Light 2 from another Polish studio, Techland. This result does not seem unexpected, given the fact that the first part of the game turned out to be extremely popular among a wide range of gamers.
Like Cyberpunk 2077, Techland’s zombie action game has been in development for several years now. Back in September, the Polish company announced that the development of the game was going according to the planned schedule, but the release date for Dying Light 2 is still unknown.
Recall that the release of the first part of Dying Light took place in January 2015 for PS4, Xbox One and PC. The game has been highly acclaimed by both critics and casual gamers.
