Cyberpunk 2077 Roadmap

CD PROJEKT RED offers a tweet with a Cyberpunk 2077 roadmap of what they are doing to improve their sci-fi RPG between now and the end of this year. They created a graphic to represent three simple tenets, showing the rest of 2021 will include free DLCs, a free new generation console upgrade, and "multiple updates and improvements." There's no indication of when to expect the game's multiplayer mode, though if you're curious about that, this article has some general details allegedly datamined from the single-player game. There are more details on CDPR's plans including a FAQ on this page. This includes an Our Commitment to Quality Video featuring company co-founder Marcin Iwiński with a "personal explanation of what the days leading up to the launch of Cyberpunk 2077 looked like, sharing the studio's perspective on what happened with the game on old-generation consoles." Marcin asks unhappy users not to blame the development teams, saying he and the board are the final decision makers, and it was their call to release the game. He says they "never, ever intended for anything like this to happen" and offers assurances they will do their best to regain our trust. He goes on to explain how creating the game to look epic on PCs and then scaling it back for consoles turned out to be far more difficult than they anticipated. He also discusses the reasons reviews keys went out so close to the launch. Finally, he goes into more detail about setting things right going forward. We should expect large and small patches on a regular basis, the first of which should come in about 10 days and a larger, more significant update will come in the following weeks. Noting they planned to launch the free DLC shortly after launch, he says they now plan on getting these out after accomplishing the most important fixes and updates. We should expect more information in the coming months, which gives a sense of the broad timeframe they are now anticipating. The console update for Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 is expected during the second half of the year. Here's how he concludes the clip:
I'd like to end this video by assuring you that we treat this entire situation very seriously and are working hard to make it right. The guiding principles of our company are still core to what we do. We still want to make amazing games and have an open communication with you our players. For now our immediate focus is to work hard on making sure you enjoy Cyberpunk 2077 regardless of platform. Beyond Cyberpunk we have many plans for the future, which we'll share more about when we're ready.
