Cyberpunk 2077 is finally here, but it should have been delayed again, according to the fiasco surrounding its launch problems on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
The console versions should have waited until next year.
Agreed. Unacceptable mess..
Great on PC though.
@RazzerRedux It doesn't have the same issues with framerate and resolution on PC but it's incredibly buggy on every platform. The reviews were of the PC version after all and the main issue highlighted was the bugs.
@LucasRuinedChildhood Yeah....and metacritic score is still 90. Sorry, but if PC were in a state like console, do you really think that would be the case?
I finally downloaded it for my pc and love the game so far. Only played for a couple hours though.
Razzer I guess reddit being filled with pc gamers having issues with optimization/bugs,glitches means it's great on pc. If this game was actually great on pc than I can understand the whole last generation consoles couldn't handle the game but even high end PC's can't handle this so what's their excuse for bad optimization and all those other bugs and glitches Simple fact of the matter is this game wasn't ready to launch now and CDPR launched anyway under some sort of pressure even though they could have delayed the game 6 months and still made same if not more money
I'm speaking from my own person experience. And my PC "handles" the game just fine at the right settings (4K resolution, mix of medium and high quality, DLSS set to performance) except for the occasional frame drop primarily when driving in the city. Frankly, this game, for me, performs better than AC: V where they didn't even bother to include DLSS for PC. I'm glad they didn't delay it, frankly. I've been wanting to play this game for a while. Yes, they should have delayed the last gen console version. But the PC version was patched early and was already receiving reports that most of the issues were fixed. Does that fix every issue for everyone? Nope. So add my voice to the list of people who are satisfied and take it for what it is worth.
Problems on PC and old gen, Thank god we have now powerful next gen consoles that can handle this game :D
I’m playing on PS5. While the frame rate issues on last gen consoles aren’t nearly as bad. The game is still borderline unplayable. A bunch of crashes, game breaking bugs, and little glitches all over. I actually had to just give up today to wait for everything to be fixed.
I've had more crashes than id like but the frame rate is generally a solid 60fps the issue seems to actually be with the frame pacing.
PC is by far the best platform for this game atm lol.
I am enjoying it so far on my PC and have only come across two bugs. The launcher didn't work at first me, the game immediately crashed. Got around that by just clicking on the .exe. Then I had a bug in the game where it continually tells me to talk to Victor. The game is pretty demanding on your hardware though, my 3 year old 1080Ti can only manage 51 fps on average at 1440p with high settings. Just for the fun of it I switched monitors to my 48" 4K OLED to see what it would do at 4K, it was literally like watching a slide show, my 1080Ti nearly had a stroke..lol
What about lowering some settings so you get higher fps? 51 fps is amazing for console owners who are used to 30fps. I bet you could easily reach 60fps by lowering some minor impact settings. Total biscuit used to make great videos showing which settings demand the most for little return.
RIP. I'm mainly a console guy but I still enjoyed his videos, particularly the podcasts.
That's with turning motion blur, film grain and chromatic aberration off. I agree, the videos of Total Biscuit were very good..
Yeah I’m glad they released it, I’m enjoying it and was tired of waiting. Wonder how many of these cry babies where also complaint about them having there employees work paid overtime
Ughhh. I am thoroughly enjoying the game on series x. Speak for yourself.
You're not allowed to enjoy this game right now. Lol
Oh shut up, I’m playing it and not having any of those problems. I’m sure it was to the point they had to release it. These guys went way above and beyond to deliver a great game when all the other developers are raping us with mt’s and other crap
I mean they had eight years to develop this game and it ended up releasing in a state of brokenness, which did actually happen despite you "not having any of those problems". This game 100% needed another delay, they should have waited til holiday 2021.
The game is too advanced for PS4 and Xbox One. It should have skipped those consoles and came out for next-gen when the patch rolls out next year. CD would have got a lot flack for it, but it’s just a fact. 🤷♂️
the game was announced before last gen consoles even out though
Was definitely needed on consoles. Playing on PS5 and in the 7 or so hours I’ve put into it I’ve had 5 full crashes, 9 or 10 bugs that stopped progression and needed a full game reset to fix, and litteraly dozens of bugs n glitches that didn’t hamper the game TOO much, but was more than a little immersion breaking. And my settings keep going back to default every hour or so out of nowhere which is just annoying. After the last crash today I just put it down. I’ll restart it when the bugs are fixed or just wait for the real PS5 version.
Not on series x. Truth
Imagine the outrage if they delayed it again. I think it's best to accept that this is such a large and complex game, that issues were inevitable. Most of them will be patched in time. I know Bethesda isn't everyone's favourite developer these days, but people happily put up with these sorts of issues with Fallout 3&4 and Skyrim, with many people calling each of them game of the year. I don't see why we're suddenly expecting a far higher level of polish from this one.
They would never have had to delay the game a single time if they didn't lie about any release date prior. Release dates are all lies and marketing tactics these days, and these publishers are the ones creating this nonsensical problem in the first place! They don't want "delay backlash" then don't freakin' announce a release date for your game when its far away from being completed! How hard is it not to that? It literally takes LESS EFFORT not to announce a fake release date!
"I think it's best to accept that this is such a large and complex game, that issues were inevitable." That's an absolutely bad mindset to have.
It’s the reality, and I’m glad they pushed the envelope instead of worrying about crybabies like u that won’t be happy no matter what
Man it’s nice having a game you can tell was designed from ground up to be the best game possible and not around micro transactions. I’m enjoying it plus with cdpr’s track record you know there’s going to be a ton of support.
I would say that release it was the right move, at least on PC. Sure it’s requiring a lot of fixes, but at least now CDPR will provide fixes as per priorities voiced by the community. The risk not to release it again would have been in my opinion that the devs goes in endless turd polishing mode on small details and missing the big picture. I think scripting fix is what requires the most efforts from now. Graphic wise, while it may seems to be over taxing on GPU side, playing it on a 1080ti at ultra settings at 1080p (locked at 30fps), it is genuinely a massive step forward in lighting, environmental effects and details vs everything released so far. And this is without ray tracing. So it is no so surprising at the end that required GPU power is pretty high, especially for 60fps target. My main concern is more the endless out of stock situation on new GPUs than Cyberpunk perfs. As a lot of people I believe, I rolled up a plan since several years to have GPU upgrade at the same time as Cyberpunk release, which failed miserably 😂.
Love it. Buggy as hell from what I hear (not been any more buggy for me that any given elderscrolls/fallout). Should have been delayed again, but there would have been blood in the streets!
CDPR have managed to run Witcher 2 on Xbox 360 which was a big achievement back than I believe. So running Cyperpunk on a base PS4 or Xbox One shouldn't be that big of a problem.
I’m glad they released it, I got something to play through the holidays and the games awesome. I’m playing on Xbox one and not experiencing all the bugs people are crying about. The games massive it’s actually insane how few bugs I’ve come across. Fallout 4 was no where near this games scale or polish and that game was riddled with bugs for me
