Cyberpunk 2077 struggled to maintain positivity around the game after the release; moreover, things quickly turned worse with the horrible performance on the older generations of consoles. The studio has since been trying to right those wrongs by offering refunds and pledging to fix the game with patch updates.

CDPR’s co-founder Marcin Iwinski issued a video response apologizing for the performance lag. He addressed the gaming community and took full responsibility for the state of the game, especially on Ps4 and Xbox One.

CDPR chief also urged the community not to blame the hardworking members of the team but rather hold the management responsible. He also added that the final decision to release the game was taken by the leadership with good intentions.
