By far the biggest controversy in recent video game history is Cyberpunk 2077. After promising an unimaginable game and delivering a completely broken product, the company has lost all confidence of gamers who even question the need to order games. before their launch. Marcin Iwiński decided to record a video apologizing for what happened.
What happened to Cyberpunk 2077?
Marcin is one of the founders of CD Projekt Red – a Polish studio made famous by The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and the failure of Cyberpunk. It went public on the game’s official Twitter following rumors of problems with the Polish government.
He explains that the company never intended to release an incomplete game. Developing the original idea for Cyberpunk 2077 for the current generation of consoles turned out to be a bigger challenge than expected, resulting in errors that went unnoticed during the testing phase.
“As we approach the release date, we’ve seen significant improvements with each new day and we really thought we would be able to provide (all fixes) in the update.”
The co-founder of the studio took the opportunity to comment on the controversy over the copies sent to the press. It turns out that critics only received copies of the PC version of the game in advance, which had the best finish. This impacted the impression the press had of the game prior to launch, conveying broken confidence to players when the game was launched.
“We started shipping the console version (to the press) on December 8th. All of this happened as we were working remotely with all the challenges resulting from the covid-19 restrictions. “
Finally, he asks the players not to blame the production team for what happened, but the executives who decided to release the game in advance, including Marcin himself. Check it out:

What to expect from Cyberpunk 2077?
Cyberpunk 2077 has already received three bug fixes and performance improvements, but luckily there will be even more updates. The company took advantage of the publication to strengthen the post-launch development plan.
The next update arrives in 10 days, on January 23, followed by an even more significant improvement a few weeks later. Marcin promises the game will be amazing after all future fixes and reiterates some promises made during the launch campaign.
The game will receive small free DLCs throughout the year, as well as The Witcher 3. Expect some new aesthetic content and small missions. Nothing too spectacular.
