There is not much to look forward to in 2020. Thanks to the coronavirus health epidemic outbreak, most will consider 2020 as a loss and hopefully at least marginally by 2021. However, there was a lot of hype and expectation for the video game industry. While every industry around the world has been working to move workers remotely to run the business, there are still plenty of optimistic companies trying to see product launches.
Needless to say, the 2020 video game project saw a full delay. This is all understandable due to the current epidemic situation. It took time for developers to adjust to work remotely. Nevertheless, there were successful launches of next-generation consoles in November 2020. Similarly, plans still plan to launch CD Project Red, the title of their anticipated video game, Cyberpunk 2077, before 2020.
Most say that cyberpunk 2077 is too late in 2020. This will happen after the title is delayed more than once by 2020. There were usually lots of positive reviews on the Ul PC platform. However, the last generation base models of the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 were quite far behind.
I don’t need to go behind poor optimization for these consoles as it has been said countless times from every publication. However, it was only yesterday that we received a video upload featuring Marcin Ivinsky, co-founder of CD Project Red. That video can be seen above, but in it we find a public explanation with some explanations behind the introduction of Cyberpunk 2077. According to the co-founder, the thought process was to make Cyberpunk look as beautiful as possible on a 2077 PC and downgrade the game to the next generation of hardware consoles.
It was even harder than the developers expected which resulted in the game being deliberately delayed. When the game launched in December, the developers hoped that the updated works would be ready in time for its launch, which they did not achieve. Although they are sorry for the poor optimization, it is clear that the studios are still focusing on providing more updates to the game which has resulted in DLC lagging behind.
Both plans for Free DLC are still scheduled for 2021, with everything around the world apparently relying on updating the game to fix as many problems as possible by the end of 2021. For now, CD Project Red has finished their work for them, but for those who are still enjoying the title, we at least know that Knight City still has plans this year to bring more content to the world.
