The series of fixes that have been released till now by the company is to resolve the numerous bugs and known issues with the game that have been reported ever since reviews of Cyberpunk 2077 came out.
The console calamity
The game’s developers have been forced to remove Cyberpunk 2077 from the PlayStation Store after numerous reports surfaced online of the game crashing and causing problems to PS 4 gamers. The performance on the Xbox One has also not been as per expectations which is why the company has decided to extend the return policy for the game indefinitely.
CDPR announced that it will be refunding the money for anyone who chooses to go for that option and also issued a public apology for not showing the game’s performance on legacy consoles during the reveal.
Better on PC
PC gamers haven’t had a lot to complain about Cyberpunk 2077. The fact that early review copies of the game were also given out for PC mislead a lot of users into thinking that it would be similar on consoles. Turns out they were wrong.
PC gamers have rated the game to be fantastic with most of the international reviews of the game giving it a thumbs up. The story has been the same for next-generation consoles like the Xbox Series X and Series S and even the PlayStation 5.
