Tbh, graphical upgrades are hardly essential. The game performs like shit.Yeah, I think Q3 or Q4 is on the roadmap (just after some of the first free DLC's). The worry has been that it will get delayed further though, but getting AMD ray tracing up and running is a decent sign.
I'm guessing that's on console? The PC version has been OK performance-wise and actually had ray tracing from the start (although only on Nvidia cards). There were some bugs initially but I didn't see anything major and I'm guessing the next-gen versions will be built from the PC version rather than the console version. I do have a 3080 GPU though so I would expect performance to be OK on that.Tbh, graphical upgrades are hardly essential. The game performs like shit.
I'm starting to get the impression their main focus is getting rid of the graphical bugs and glitches that have spawned hundreds on memes and then they'll forget about it.
Looking back retrospectively there is so much work that needs to be done on this game and better lighting is the bottom of that list
These are the real issues and I don't think they'll ever fix it.I'm guessing that's on console?

It's still got the massive AI issues and the lack of interaction in the world and they really do need to fix that - I agree that there are no indications of that so far apart from a couple of notes about the police AI which will be really disappointing if its never fixed.
https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2021-03-31-cyberpunk-2077s-online-portion-no-longer-standaloneCD Projekt's big online Cyberpunk 2077 multiplayer portion will no longer be launched as a standalone release.
The developer announced the change yesterday in a conference call held following the company's big strategy update, where it briefed investors on how it will continue both Cyberpunk and Witcher franchises over the next few years.
Yesterday's strategy update vaguely mentioned "reconsidered" multiplayer plans for Cyberpunk 2077, which CD Projekt boss Adam Kiciński was then asked to clarify.
Regarding online, we are changing our approach, so we want to have online in our future games, definitely, but step-by-step," Kiciński said (thanks, VGC). "So, we are working on specific features enhancing our single-player [games], but we are not working on releasing the next game [as] a big online experience. So, we will be enhancing our single-player games with online experiences.
The only change is that we continue to work on it not as a main production line but as a supportive production line together with our single-player productions," Kiciński continued. "But we believe that our ideas, once they will be revealed, will be very exciting for gamers as an extra experience in our world which fits our single-player games."
In January 2020, CD Projekt said Cyberpunk 2077's multiplayer likely wouldn't arrive until at least 2022, as it would be a "AAA release we're working on in parallel".
A multiplayer component for Cyberpunk 2077 was first mooted all the way back in 2013, but it wasn't until 2019 that CD Projekt made it official.
As for what Cyberpunk 2077's multiplayer will look like, details are thin on the ground. In reference to microtransactions in the main single-player game, CD Projekt previously said these would only exist in the game's multiplayer portion.
Yesterday, CD Projekt said it would reorganise itselfto develop multiple AAA projects at same time and begin promoting them much closer to release, in response to Cyberpunk 2077's troubled launch.
2020 was so shit it ruined both this hotly anticipated release and the reputation of CDPR.Incredible how much interest this game has lost since it released. This was the most hyped up game since GTAV. I forgot this game exists until I saw this thread...played it for about an hour and never touched it again....
Haven't played the beta yet. Just waiting for the full release in 2022.Hadn't played this game since I completed it first time round, but thought I would give it a second play through last night.
Wish I hadn't - whatever updates they have done have made the game worse.
First time through I had one crash, and minimal bugs, hardly saw any of the game breaking bugs that people were describing and absolutely loved it, however second time through in an hour last night I saw 7 or 8 major bugs. textures not loading, cars appearing out of nowhere, stutters galore.
Whatever they tried to fix has just made it worse in my eyes,
It doesn't really get better. It's pretty underwhelming overall.13 hours into the game and I'm honestly feeling a little bit underwhelmed. This hasn't really been a great game so far regardless of the technical aspect (which still has ton of glitches by the way). It's a good game at best.
I don't know. Maybe it'll improve massively later on or something, but I refuse to believe this is everything they have been developing all these years ?
I'm still waiting for the thousands of locked doors to be unlocked...doubt that will ever happen now.I put it on briefly the other night to check stability for an overclock, it was bad. Like I don't even remember it being that bad for some reason, felt like a decent experience at the time despite its' problems; but for a good while a large chunk of the city was completely empty, car felt like it's driving on ice, the ridiculous AI NPC's, police still just spawning out of thin air.
Yeah, no second playthrough for me.
The Npcs are boring but I don’t think that’s much different or other games, it’s been slightly overblown due to some crap ai. Are the NPCs really so groundbreaking in games like Skyrim, Fallout, even the new AC RPGs. Only red dead is top tier in that department. Even so the world building, the lore, the characters and the writing are all top tier for me. Can’t think of a game in recent years that I’ve put 60 hours into to complete and wanted to replay again so badly. I had to hold myself back to wait for the next gen updates.The city was basically empty and all the pedestrians were just standing around or walking loops. The world felt completely soulles.
This is a fair point. Although it probably should have been on Red Dead’s levelThe Npcs are boring but I don’t think that’s much different or other games, it’s been slightly overblown due to some crap ai.

There’s actually a cool mod on PC that unlocks many of those doors. You really have to wonder what went on behind the scenes for the game to scaled back as much as it was. It’s clear they had so much more planned there never came to fruition.I'm still waiting for the thousands of locked doors to be unlocked...doubt that will ever happen now.
Such a waste of a great city.
https://www.polygon.com/2021/4/22/2...pril-2021-investors-call-refund-details-costsCD Projekt refunded 30K copies of Cyberpunk 2077 out of 13M
Not including MS and Sony refunds though, and possibly others. I imagine there's a shit tonne there. Also places like Shopto made it a pain in the arse to get a refund on a physical copy, and you had to pay to send it back. Things like this probably made people think 'feck it' and see what happens with it in a year. One of those people is me. I'd have definitely got a refund if I had a digi copy.For all the outcries about the game, this isn't much of a number for refunded copies.
I had two playthroughs and loved both, without much bugs, waiting for new content for third playthrough.
Yep, totally agreed.Not including MS and Sony refunds though, and possibly others. I imagine there's a shit tonne there.

I don't think I've seen anyone here on there say that recently although I may have missed it? I've seen people say they enjoyed the game and story, which is fine as that's just personal choice.Yep, totally agreed.
Doesn't also include people like me who wanted to give them a chance even though I know it's never going to be fixed let alone reach any kind of potential. What bothers me from here on out though is that people are swallowing their continued bullshit and not questioning the words they are using. Like the latest article about how they've learned lessons...it's a joke from top to bottom, just like their apologies and just like these "updates". As I said at launch, it'll all be about PR and the Wither 3 patch and people will simply be bought off by that. Then complain on twitter and be "outraged" all over again down the line.
That was a bad time for me ok I wish you wouldn’t bring it upIt’s quite surprising they didn’t even manage to get the clothing right. Obviously being a certain character you want the clothing to match, but you quickly end up looking like someone who moved to LA and lost their mind*, just because you want to be wearing the gear with the best stats.
*one of the first things I saw in LA walking down the street was a guy with no top on, sparkly leggings, and a pink cowboy hat ranting and raving in the street.
