PlayStation 5 owners in the Digital Edition can finally breathe a sigh of relief, as Cyberpunk 2077, after a few months of absence, is back in the PlayStation Store. This is the best example of why it’s not worth trusting the “number”, because you never know if a publisher or the founders of a particular platform won’t want to cut us off from some production, defending their decision based on, say, poor product improvement. This is a somewhat disrespectful approach as you should always keep in mind that some fans – who don’t have motorized equipment in their homes – put certain elements of the game above the smoothness of the game.
Good or bad news?
It has passed, so there is no longer any argument about removing Cyberpunk 2077 from the PS Store. Polish developers have significantly improved their eyes on the PS4 and XONE base consoles, so people who care more about the 30fps game, nothing stands in the way of getting to know the massive emotional adventure of a mercenary named V.
CD Projekt RED CEO Adam Kiesinski is of the same opinion, stating during the conference at the Innovation Day at the Warsaw Stock Exchange that the developers have finally managed to achieve a satisfactory level of stability:
We are constantly working on new patches. We have already achieved a satisfactory level in this regard [stabilności – red.]. We’ve also worked on the overall efficiency, and we’re also very happy with it. Of course, we also fixed bugs and glitches, and we will continue to do so. Over time, we’ll roll out some fixes to the general systems that players monitor.
This phrase sounds very funny, because the “satisfactory level of stability” should be visible on the day of the premiere and there is no doubt about it, but contrary to appearances, the Polish entrepreneur’s statement is good news for the players who had a great time with the latest position of Warsaw team. And, believe it or not, there are really a lot of them, as evidenced by forums and channels – for example – about a row full of recipients still talking about flavors and heroes as well as Night City itself from Cyberpunk 2077.
It’s time for something else
Getting back to the heart of the matter, while reading Kiciński’s statement, a light flashed in my head suggesting that beyond the satisfactory optimization of production discussed today, CD Projekt RED will focus more on providing additional content – both free and paid. The title appeared on the market at the end of last year, and as the PR staff pointed out, Night City “free bonus content” was scheduled to hit the start of this calendar year. We’re already in our second half, and it’s not about the widu appendix nor the hearu, which means nothing draws me back into the V.
Cosmetic things will be the first priority. I wouldn’t be surprised if in a few weeks we get potential hair salons or bars with plenty of mini-games, but is it enough to encourage you to get back into the fun? Absolutely not, because most people who have already watched the final credits and heard the last words of the great V Companions, are eagerly awaiting the story expansions.
It is currently difficult to decide what topics they will cover, because Polish artists keep all information confidential. Sure, there was a DLC leak from the Epic Inspector, which allows you to manage the content of the Epic Games Store, a kind of hint that the developers wanted to take us, among other things to an underground location, but we’ll have to wait for this news to be confirmed, because CD Projekt RED priority should now be…
… Cyberpunk 2077 Next Release Released on PS5 and XSX | S. We don’t hear much about this, as well as those focused on The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, and let us remind you that both will debut later this year. Summer is already here, before we know it, leaves will start to fall out the window, so if the developers don’t postpone the release dates of both products, their announcement should be closer than further. Especially since the CD Projekt RED team, which numbered more or less than 600 developers, no longer had to focus primarily on CP2077 patches, which would improve game performance.
To summarize – Adam Kiciński’s latest statement doesn’t sound “nice” and shows that the developers weren’t satisfied with the state of the game’s last premiere. The satisfactory level of production stability discussed today will allow Polish developers to finally be able to focus fully on creating additional content for Night City and subsequent releases, which makes me optimistic.
