Next Cyberpunk 2077 update moved to Q1 2022

At the end of last year, CD Projekt Red released its first unrelated Witcher property with disappointing results. Plagued by bugs and technical glitches, Cyberpunk 2077 and CDPR have been somewhat beaten by the press and their fans. Today, more than a year later, KiciÅ„ski comments “The premiere taught us a lot. It gave us a boost and motivated us to make changes that will allow us to perform better in the future. “

“This year we will not be releasing any more updates to the game,” KiciÅ„ski said. “We are working intensively on the version of the latest generation of consoles, which will be released in the first quarter of 2022 with a major update – Patch 1.5.”

“The decision to postpone the next-gen version of ‘Cyberpunk’ was difficult,” KiciÅ„ski continues. “But we are convinced that it was right, especially since it was clearly the result of the recommendation of our development team. The quality was as high as possible.

Playstation 5 and Series X | S owners will have to wait a few more months for an update. The patch for the latest generation of consoles is now expected in Q1 2022.
