That Cyberpunk 2077 had one of the most troublesome launch of the last few years in the high-budget gaming arena is a fact. The title was even removed from the PS Store due to its poor performance on PS4. However, the product has been improving over the months and CD Projekt RED is convinced that when it is analyzed in perspective it will end up being considered a good game. This was stated by Adam Kiciński, CEO of the company, in an interview with Rzeczpospolita.
“Cyberpunk es the biggest, most ambitious and complicated project in our 27-year history, ”Kiciński commented. “In almost every aspect, we try to go a step further, just what we’ve done in every The Witcher game we’ve released.” According to the manager, designing and marketing a title for a new series involves numerous challenges and risks, “especially when the concept is complex.” He points out that they brought the city of Night City to life under a non-linear structure.

Adam Kiciński recalled that they are immersed in the development of updates and in the new generation version, scheduled for the first half of 2022. “The original launch taught us a lot. It was a touch and it has motivated us to make changes that will make us better in the future ”.
The executive has also referred to the delay of the new generation version. “It was difficult, but we are confident that it will be the right decisionas it was clearly recommended by our development team. We need extra time to adjust the graphics and performance, so that it reaches the highest quality ”, he concludes.
