If you bought Cyberpunk 2077 over the weekend, you might have run into some issues. This isn’t about the issues of bugs with the game, though. It’s about CD Projekt Red misleading consumers on the base version of the game. Of course the PC, Xbox Series X, and PlayStation 5 are going to run the game better. That’s my experience with the game, on the Series X, I haven’t run into anything more than graphical glitches that don’t really affect the gameplay.
However, people on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 are running into larger issues. It starts with the fact that reviewers were not allowed to show footage of the game running on current-gen hardware. So tons of people who bought the game and were running it on the most popular consoles at the time, are getting shafted.
Following this debacle of practically false advertising, they’re working to remedy it. Starting in January, they’ll be the first big patch for the game. I know that’s somewhat of a long wait, but they were already working around the clock and then some, to get the game out. In the mean-time, they’re putting out constant smaller performance and bug fixes.
Then another update comes out in February, and that should fix everything. Knowing how large the game is, it won’t, but it should make the game more functionally playable.
A Word On Refunds For Cyberpunk 2077
Like the note says, try where you got the game first, and then if that doesn’t work, contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org. You only have up until around when the first update is dropping to get a refund, though.
I personally don’t really have an issue with the game. It’s massive, so getting a full fledged review out, will take time. But, I’m having plenty of fun with the game. It’s smashed sales records, it made it’s entire development cost back in pre-orders.
What do you think of Cyberpunk 2077? Are you getting a refund for the game?
