According to a report by TVN24, a Poland-based news organization, Adam Kiciński has been speaking about the current state of CD Projekt Red's ill-fated action RPG Cyberpunk 2077 at the Warsaw Stock Exchange's annual innovation day.
Despite a launch which was plagued by technical issues, the sheer prevalence of which lead to the game's unprecedented removal from sale on Sony's PlayStation store until its return earlier this month, Kiciński, who is currently joint-CEO of CD Projekt alongside the company's founder, is now apparently "pleased with the stability and performance of Cyberpunk 2077". These bold remarks, which have been machine translated from Polish, come at a time where console online storefronts still have warnings on their store listings concerning the game's poor performance.
Ironically, CD Projekt Red even stated themselves that "users may continue to experience some performance issues with the PS4 edition" and advised users that "playing on PS4 Pro and PS5 will provide the best Cyberpunk 2077 experience" in their press release concerning the game's return to the PlayStation store. Alongside the re-emergence of the game on storefronts, Sony has begun to wind down their practically guaranteed refund policy in regard to Cyberpunk 2077 purchases which was available until earlier this month. The decision to relist the game and reduce the ability to claim a refund likely comes in light of the steady stream of patches that the game has been receiving over the last year.
A long road ahead for Cyberpunk 2077
In spite of these attempts to fix the problems, the game still holds a "Mostly Positive" Steam user rating with only 62% of the user reviews posted over the last 30 days being positive at the time of writing with most criticisms continuing to be aimed at performance and glitches. Kiciński went on to say that there are plans to "make improvements to the general systems that players pay attention to", once again translated from Polish, but whether this alludes to further fixes or the planned free content expansions is unclear, although it is likely both. Luckily, for the long-suffering fans of the game, one thing is clear: CD Projekt Red is not done with Cyberpunk 2077 yet and it seems a large portion of the reportedly 600 person strong development is still diligently working to get the game up to scratch.
We have reached out to CD Projekt Red via email for comment on the apparent dichotomy between the presence of store-front warnings and the CEO's remarks, but have not received a reply at the time of writing.
