CDPR Founder Marcin Iwiński has given a hint of what they are planning to do with Cyberpunk 2077 when it comes to working on a next-generation update.
In a live video interview with Bloomberg TV to celebrate the launch of Cyberpunk 2077, Marcin Iwiński was asked about the update that they have in development for the next-generation consoles. The interviewer questioned how much they expect to see the impact of the sales of the game on next-generation consoles.
“So, right now the game works in back compat, and it works very well. The consoles are much faster, ” said Marcin. “And then, we’re planning a free next-gen update for everyone who’s got a next-gen console.”
“So, if you buy the game now, you can play it on next-gen. It works great because of the higher capabilities of the new consoles. But then, with the next-gen update, we’ll use all the functionalities or the new functions and technical possibilities provided by the new platforms.”
In the same interview, Marcin also gave a response regarding the critical reception and bugs. He was confident that CD Projekt Red would be able to resolve most of the issues with the game with a post-launch update.
Speaking of which, there have been a new patch released for Cyberpunk 2077 on PS4 and PC that updates the game to version 1.04. This launched just a few hours ago and after the release of the game on December 10. It is still set to arrive on the Xbox consoles but this one appears to resolve some minor issues as well as add an epilepsy warning to the game itself.
