Although they have set a late 2021 target, CDPR has stated that Cyberpunk 2077 Next-Gen Versions are not guaranteed to release this year.
Good. I’d rather it come later if it means that issues are fixed and graphics are way better.
Just sad I paid full price for this game and haven’t touched it…. NOw it’s like 20$. Lesson learned…
Me too(kind of). I wasn't going to buy this game until it was released on the newer gen. Somebody gifted it to me for Christmas, so now I have it, but haven't even broken the plastic wrap. I just hope it still gives me the free upgrade once it finally comes out like the box cover says it will.
That really sucks gamer7804. Best Buy was selling it for $5 about 2 or 3 weeks ago. Hopefully they hook you up in someway when next gen is released. Are they doing free upgrades or are they going to try and recoup losses?
I know it’s my fault for buying the hype but no way I’m buying anything CDPR again, such an overrated developer.
Same. Had it preordered for months. I’ve literally played the first 30 min, and then I said I’ll wait for the next gen upgrade.. still waiting. Almost a year later
Yup this game and CoD Cold War was the last straw for day one purchases for me.
shouldve tried for a refund, i did and got one. only game ive ever refunded in my life.
You're feeling bamboozled and maybe a little hoodwinked? I'd have felt the same had Sony not been able to refund me in full.
I got it for $10 at Best Buy like 2 weeks ago, and they even threw in a steelbook cover for free on top. Haven't opened it yet, as I'm waiting for the PS5 edition to release... Hopefully it's worth the wait, my time... And my $10.
No console footage before launch was enough of a red flag for me, but tbh I'd already decided to wait for ps5 version by then anyway. Even if it released great I was gonna wait still tbh.
You need to learn that delays is not a garantie that bugs will be fix and better graphics. It’s often the opposite. Damn, when will people learn
It doesn't mean that issues are fixed and graphics are way better just because its coming out later. They have a lot to prove.
I was going to wait for the next-gen version as well, but I had last week off and nothing to play, so I started it. It isn't all that bad right now. A week and a half later and probably 50-some hours in to it, I didn't really hit a significant bug until yesterday that I had trouble with. I tried googling it, but it seems there was a way worse bug related to the mission on previous versions, so all the results I found were related to that. Seems I just needed to try different dialogue options to fix my bug. Not to say it's perfect, it isn't. There's still the NPC pop-ins, poor LOD distance, and it does crash every few hours, but it's all pretty minor stuff and very playable. It's mostly odd or stuttering NPC movements, junk that you can't pick up, maybe a parked car floating a foot off the ground here and there. Design-wise, I think it could really use some work explaining things a bit better. Maybe they did explain some of the stuff early on and I forgot it because they were trying to show too much all at once and wasn't relevant until much later. I'm enjoying it and having fun. Playing it any chance I get. Where it's at now, I think it's at a stage that it should have been when it was released, or pretty close. All I want out of the next-gen update is faster loading and pushing the LOD and NPC pop-in out farther.
"I’d rather it come later if it means that issues are fixed and graphics are way better. " This exact statement was made the first time 2077 was delayed, then again, and again, and look how that came out regardless. It means nothing these days
This is such BS.
It's pretty poor form - especially since they have 150 people making DLC for the game right now.
Yeah, like I understand they want it to be fixed, but dam just insane
Depends how many are working on the next-gen version already. You can't always just throw more bodies at a project and assume it will be done faster. At some point it just makes it impossible to manage and can even slow things down.
I thought, after the last update, it was full steam ahead on current gen. I’d rather have a current gen version first, then the DLC.
Yup. I am not buying the game until it’s at its full potential on next gen.
What's BS is the game isn't fixed yet and some folk want current gen versions and even DLC right now that will probably break the game more. At this point the current game being fixed is a priority as it should be.
zpretty sure noone cares a tthis point
I haven't played it yet, so I care since I want I am waiting for the next-gen version so I can play it without that much bugs and performance issues.
it(ps4 version) plays butter smooth on PS5. Ive played through it like 3 times on PS5, and once on PC. Great game.
@yeahokwhatever . Yeah I played through the main story on PS5 and loved it, will play through all the side missions and other two main storylines once the next gen upgrade is out, looking forward to it. Shame people miss out because of the negativity and downright lies about cut content. Yes it did not launch in a good state, but the main bugs were fixed pretty soon. Even PS4 performance is okay considering how old the console is and compared to other games on the system.
I started playing it on PS5 about 10 days ago. It isn't all that bad right now. It's a lot of little things that don't matter, except for it crashing now and then. It seems to do a lot of auto-saves but I do a lot of manual saves as well just to save myself time if I did spotted or fail a breach or something. The save process is SUPER fast and can probably be done from the time you hit the menu button to back in the game in like 2-3 seconds.
I care. As far as I'm concerned the real game hasn't been released yet. I'm not giving that last gen debacle the time of day. It should've been scrapped
Haha what a joke CDPR has become… gone from hero to zero in a flash, by the time these current gen versions come out nobody will want to play the game anyway it’s old news.. the game wasn’t bad just because of the bugs it’s all the mechanics it’s all mediocre..
Yeah. I forget folk stop wanting to play a game after a year or so. Should just burn all the old games. The game actually wasn't that bad outside of the game being broken by bugs and under-delivering on what was promised. I enjoyed the story and choices. The world itself looks beautiful too.
I know several people including myself who are waiting for the next gen upgrade to play....
The game is empty. Just completely empty. Other than story, there is nothing to do. Forget the bugs and glitches, which can be game breaking at times, it's an entire city of nada.
"Nothing to do"? I mean, it doesnt have silly bowling minigames or anything, but its got racing, hacking, killing, sneaking, shooting, stabbing, crafting, weird braindance things, about a billion little stories.. i dont know, its pretty interesting. I love this game. :-)
On top of what yeahokwhatever said, there's also so many side quests, of various types, crimes all over the city you can take care of, and more places to explore than any game I've ever played. It's one thing to hop over a small obstacle to see what might be hiding behind it, but there's often pretty large areas that damn near any other game would just block you from even accessing. Then there's the verticality of it all, leading to even more places to explore. Then you unlock double or boosted jump, now you can reach even more places to find stuff. I think I'm 50+ hours in and it looks like I'm maybe 20-30% through the game. Nothing to do, my ass.
I’m in same boat- I got the game on sale but waiting for the next gen patch. I heard to eliminate bugs and poor performance that random NPCs were drastically minimized.
Of course not. They have 150 people working on an expansion because you can charge for that...why fix the console versions or release the next gen version which would be a free upgrade for most?
Honestly, I'm fine with that. Don't make the same mistake as the last gen versions. Take your time and make sure they both look and perform as best as they can. I stopped playing last year because I wanted to wait for a proper current gen version.
That's fine. It's not worth it to me until the next gen versions are $20 AT MOST anyway.
I want to play this but Il wait until next gen version is out
Unfortunately graphics are not gonna fix the uninspired and empty feeling gameplay.
man, the gameplay is my favorite part. :-/
Bought it for $10 at Best Buy and comes with a steel case two weeks ago. Hopefully it will be nicely patched by next year around this time.
Headline is a bit misleading. Look, you don't have to like CP2077 or even care, but it's not being done by CDPR.
The Complete Next Gen version expected launch November 2077 -saved you a click
My only expectation for the next-gen version at this point is that it’ll be prettier & smoother. I still expect it to have the non existent AI, horror police, crazy physics, unresponsive vehicle controls & all over the place clothes stats. Definitely getting it at a big discount.
Wow, finally a normal comment. People expecting miracle with next gen.
I'd be fine with faster load times (to deal with the crashes that still happen) and pushing the poor LOD and NPC pop-in points further out (or just get better LOD so the character pop-in isn't a thing anymore).
That means it isn’t coming btw if you know nothing about the games industry.
Gameplay wise the game was pretty dated on release. By the time the next gen update launches it may look relatively shiny and nice but the game itself will be old trash. I’m really disappointed with this news. It’s going to be really difficult to get excited about a game that’s well over a year old. I’m well past half way on my ps5 and decided to wait for the update. I’ll probs never finish now. Update was never going to fix some of the games biggest flaws anyway. Super easy and repetitive combat once you’ve levelled up your hacking (in my opinion one of the only things separating it’s gameplay from other similar games), pointless police and wanted system, and my number one niggle is the fact that night city is so painfully underpopulated. There’s are no where near enough vehicles or npc’s about. Fuck cdpr
Just finnish the game and forget it. That is how developer intended to experience it. Not Ps7 version... This one...PS4 version. Thank cdpr... Trash.
How about "guaranteed to NOT release this year...
who even cares at this point
Possibly the most farcical game release of modern times. The only version that is acceptable is on Stadia. Hopefully when it finally comes to next gen it is bug free and also they could do to drop it to a lower price. Incredible that any dev would allow such a mess to unfold.
Pathetic. CDPR is a farce.
Which obviously means it won't be this year for sure.
That ok next year is only about 4 months away now
It does suck that they were hunting a February next gen update at first so people like myself that brought the PS4 version to play over the PC thinking that the next gen update was right around the corner got shafted
Cyberpunk; the gift that keeps on giving
I still haven’t played it . Hoping they make the AI quality of a last gen game at least but I’m not getting my hopes up. I’m willing to wait , I’ve waited this long what’s another year or 2 lol
If this game is so linear, without meaningful choices that really impact the story, as I've read here and there (something is not like they advertised), then I couldn't care less about next gen graphics, fps etc. This is doomed
