CDPR: Some Cyberpunk 2077's Issues Are Already Ironed Out

According to CD Projekt RED's Fabian Mario Döhl, day 1 patch will eliminate a large part of Cyberpunk 2077's problems. The difference is expected to be particularly large for console versions. The developer also revealed the likely origin of some of the glitches that the reviewers came across.

IN A NUTSHELL:

  1. One of CDPR developers is convinced that the patch made available to reviewers, as well as the upcoming patch for Cyberpunk 2077, solve a large part of the game's problems;
  2. Some glitches are supposed to be caused by a resource streaming system that doesn't perform well when game settings exceed the capabilities of the hardware;
  3. On consoles, the update is supposed to turn the title into a "different game".

One of the developers from CD Projekt RED, Fabian Mario Döhla, has assured on Twitter that a large part of the problems encountered by reviewers of Cyberpunk 2077 (such as glitches and fps drops) have already been eliminated, and more will be fix by the upcoming day 1 patch.

According to the developer, some of the glitches are caused by problems with content streaming, which occurs when game settings slightly exceed the capabilities of the user's hardware.

Polish studio's employee also said that in the case of consoles, the upcoming update will turn Cyberpunk 2077 into a "different game".

It's worth remembering that Fabian Mario Döhla's assurances can be a bit exaggerated - the company obviously wants to present its work in the best possible light. It only remains to be hoped that the day 1 patch really will greatly improve the game's condition, especially since bugs are basically the only serious objection that is repeated in most reviews of Cyberpunk 2077 (also in ours).
