Didn't they confirm that will be Q4 2021?
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.

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

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.

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.

It's pretty obvious to me that this game should have been next-gen only, but management wanted the cash from last gen consoles. They've probably spent months trying to get it running on something that it will never work properly on which is appalling.

These are the real issues and I don't think they'll ever fix it.

At this stage they're simply polishing a turd.

Seen my first bug. Was in a firefight in the first mission and Jackie disappeared but his guns were in mid air shooting away. I hid behind a wall, peeked out again and he was back.

Sounds like the latest patch fixes a lot of things. Unfortunately the disastrous launch has killed my enthusiasm, but I'm looking forward to playing this maybe in about a year/18 months, when further patches and maybe some interesting DLCs bring the game closer to what we thought it might be.

Yup, sounds about right.

CD 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.

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....

2020 was so shit it ruined both this hotly anticipated release and the reputation of CDPR.

Now that update 1.2 came, I'm very tempted to start this. I will finish Doom Eternal's DLC then jump straight into this.

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,

Haven't played the beta yet. Just waiting for the full release in 2022.

I played 3 hours today on PC. Most settings are on medium. Quick notes :

*Performance isn't bad, better than I expect, but there're too many glitches. Cars flying in the air, persons passing through walls, texture pop up..etc. Too many. No crashes in these 3 hours so.
*Driving is atrocious. Cars feel like they're moving on ice or soap !
*Shooting does seem good from the first mission so enemies AI don't particularly sound smart. I guess I'll see in the next few hours when more shooting happened.
*I liked the braindance mission and how you scan the scenes. Ok it's a rip off from Batman Arkham's detective mode but it was quite fun.
*Still early to comment on the story but the start feels like quite slow.

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 ?

It doesn't really get better. It's pretty underwhelming overall.

I have no desire to ever go back to this. Even if they made it completely bug free. Was proper boring.

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 setting has such as massive amount of potential, it's an absolute crying shame this has happened. What this should have been, is what games should be.

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.

Genuinely surprised you’d say this I thought it was brilliant even as a buggy mess.
The city was basically empty and all the pedestrians were just standing around or walking loops. The world felt completely soulles.

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.

This is a fair point. Although it probably should have been on Red Dead’s level

I thought the story was great, the rest of the game was really, really underwhelming. I dont see any point in a second playthrough either. Glitches and bugs were kind of minor compared to how shallow the game mechanics were.

I really think they should stick with it...theres so much to improve on but if they can fix/upgrade everything in the future dlcs, game could be amazing.

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.

Too many fecking glitches. One weird glitch I got today was not being able to change view while driving the bike. I kept on pressing Q in vain. Had to reload last checkpoint to solve the issue.

For all the outcries about the game, this isn't much of a number for refunded copies.



https://www.polygon.com/2021/4/22/2...pril-2021-investors-call-refund-details-costs


I had two playthroughs and loved both, without much bugs, waiting for new content for third playthrough.
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.

The game isn't outright bad, it's just not great. Definitely didn't live up to the hype all these years. This is the reason I'm getting a big sensation of being underwhelmed. I just refuse to believe this is it? This is all of it?

Combat is so average. The Ai isn't just stupid. It actually doesn't work a lot times. I have caught the enemies several times standing still behind a cover doing nothing even with me in their face, waiting patiently for me to shoot them. It's as if their code stopped working midway in the fight. This happened a lot. I can't believe this game was in development for nearly 4 fecking years and such huge issue got past them to the released version, what the hell? The gun fights feel like a shooting gallery, rather than being an actual fight.

The driving sucks. I won't talk anymore about it. I decided to stick with one of the bikes I got from a mission and not spend more money on cars. Bikes at least are somewhat decent, but cars? They are atrocious.

The RPG elements are very underwhelming. I feel like most dialogue options lead to the same conclusions anyway and I have just finished act 2.

The open world isn't anything revolutionary or groundbreaking. It's just another big map with ton of side activities and missions scattered around.

It's about a 6 or 7/10 game at most. For the hype surrounding it ever since its release I can't believe the main game was released with just glaring issues, and I just can't believe this is the best they could have done all these years developing it.

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.

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.

I enjoyed the game a lot and was also disappointed by everything that was blatantly cut, which is a real shame as it could have been a special game. I'm also looking forward to playing it again as a different character, but would give it 7 to 8 out of 10 overall with the story missions and atmosphere being the points that raises it for me.

The real disappointment for me was some of the filler side missions as that's what really raised CDPR from other developers in previous titles.

It’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.

That was a bad time for me ok I wish you wouldn’t bring it up
