When the game launched in 2020, it was literally unplayable on a lot of platforms. It had glitches, bugs, texture problems that caused system crashes on a lot of consoles. It became so problematic that Sony removed the game from the PlayStation store until further notice. Since then, fans have waited for some news from the Polish developers regarding its return. Kicinski did not reveal any plans about a probable comeback, but he believes that Patch 1.2 will get them closer to that release.

Few months ago, CD Projekt RED released a roadmap regarding the update schedule for the game. It only details about their plan till patch 1.2 which released a few weeks ago. But after that, the title will receive free DLCs and next gen console updates. So far, they have revealed no release windows for these updates and fans hope that they arrive soon.

Patch 1.2 fixed a lot of the issues for Xbox Series X/One X and the PS4 Pro/PS5. But base consoles still have a hard time running the game. The community believes that the upcoming updates will help fix a bulk of the problems. Along with that, fans will also know about the state of the title following these crucial patches, which will determine if the game will ever have a long shelf life.
