Cyberpunk 2077’s developer seemingly acknowledges PS4 leak with video showing fixes
“This is how we want you to experience the game”
CD Projekt Red has released the first official gameplay of Cyberpunk 2077 running on PlayStation 4 Pro and PlayStation 5 via backwards compatibility.
Although the video was always planned for release this week, it does appear to acknowledge recently leaked gameplay showing the unpatched physical version of the game running on PS4, which one consumer posted online after obtaining an early copy.
Tuesday’s official video highlights some of the exact same areas as the leaked video and specifically flags the fact that a day one patch will be improving the game at release.
The gameplay shown in the video includes a number of the fixes planned for the day-one patch, UK comms manager Hollie Bennett said.
“Since going gold, the team at CD Projekt Red has continued to work on Cyberpunk, addressing bugs and glitches, and enhancing the gameplay and graphics which will be distributed to all platforms as an update on launch day. This is how we want you to experience the game.”
Last week CD Projekt Red debuted the first footage of Cyberpunk 2077 running on consoles. A new 10-minute video switches between Xbox One X and Xbox Series X gameplay, which is shown running via the console’s backwards compatibility feature.
Cyberpunk 2077’s release date was recently pushed back by 21 days to December 10, marking a third delay for a game originally scheduled to launch in April.
In a follow-up call with investors in October, CD Projekt CEO Adam Kicinski suggested the game’s latest delay could be due to specific issues with the Xbox One and PS4 versions of the game.
“The game for PC is ready and plays well on next-gen consoles and the company is finalising the process concerning current gen consoles,” he said.
He also claimed the delay would lead to a “better initial reaction” to the product, resulting in greater sales. “The decision was not easy but we know there is just one release and the first impression is crucial.”
