lmao This game is never coming out.

Makes the hand-wringing I've been doing about whether to get this or Age of Calamity first pointless, though.

I think at this point I'll wait for the PS5 box. At least that one comes with the day patch on the disc.

That's 3 holidays booked for release now missed and I'm not going to try moving anymore. At least this hol can now be for Miles Morales and PS5. While it's a bummer it's delayed I'm glad they're putting quality control above rushing out for sales.

I'm a bit disappointed but 3 weeks ain't going to kill my hype. At least I'll have Demon Souls to keep me busy on PS5 until then.

It doesn't really matter to me. I was always going to wait for the PS5 version.

I also really am anxioous for the state of the game at launch anyway, so maybe I'll wait even longer until it's been fixed up a bit (like they did with Witcher 3 as well).

I honestly think it’s a bit of a kick in the teeth to the staff at this point. Being reportedly worked extremely hard and yet still missing several launch targets makes me think that the ones in charge just shouldn’t have dated the game prematurely. Plenty games are a TBA until they’re mostly ready. Look at Metroid Prime 4 and Bayo 3, we don’t know when they’re coming but we can wait because we trust that the product will be quality based on the respective studios’ pedigree. Not a good look.

@Kidfried The goalposts keep changing for the staff as well. If it had released back at the start of the year, then they’d have had the traditional few months of maintenance while working on the PS5 version. Now, due to the delays, they’ve had to simultaneously work on the PS5 version while polishing off the current-gen versions. Throw in a Witcher 3 next-gen upgrade and it seems like they’re swamping their staff with far too much work. Crunch has its place in times of stress but they’ve created a state of perpetual stress for themselves. I just worry about the average employee’s health considering the crazy circumstances.

tbh i realy don't see this game running well on OG ps4's and xbox one's without heavy compromise.

from the wording in the tweet about the game being almost next gen and the hard work they need to do to make it run smooth on ps4,xbox one etc,i realy don't think this game will be compatible enough with those consoles.

i'm suprised they did not ditch the current gen versions considering it seems that they made the game way to ambitious for that hardware. at some point they must have thought that they where making it to big for a current gen game.

CDPR CEO: “This situation is different compared to previous changes to the deadline. The game for PC is ready and plays well on next-gen consoles and the company is finalizing the process concerning current-gen consoles.

@DonJorginho Where did you get that from? I don't see it on their twitter channel.

So, yeah, as most of us expected, I think, it's the potato hardware holding back the general release of the game. They really should have released it first on PC/PS5/XSX and then launched the PS4/Xbone version at a later date once they'd properly downgraded it.

It'd be like holding back the release of a PS4/Xbone game because of the need to sufficiently optimize the Switch version first.

@JohnnyShoulder their latest conference call.

He also stated how the PC version is ready and the next gen version is doing good also, just current gen flaring up issues atm.

DonJorginho

JohnnyShoulder

@DonJorginho Yep @Ralizah linked the source (cheers btw). I think it is a bit of a stretch to go to 'current gen flaring up issues' from 'finalizing the process concerning current-gen consoles' though.

Its hardly a surprise the lowered powered systems are proving more tricky to get this game working to their standards. It is an ambitious project, and covid and lockdown has probably thrown a few spanners in the works. Hopefully the game will run well enough on current gen systems, it would be a real kick in the guts for people that have waited this long on for it hit a load of performance issues.

They could have done better with how they worded the previous delays, by saying there would be no more delays. By doing so they have left themselves open to criticism when they could have been avoided.

I don't think they helped themselves by announcing the game 7 and half years ago. I get that they are a publicly listed company and have investors to think about, but I don't think they have done themselves any favours by doing that. Bethesda are gonna have a similar problem with the next Elder Scrolls game, and Nintendo with Metroid Prime 4.

People will be surprised what developers can do in the final few weeks, games can really come together even at that late stage. I think Corey Balrog and Neil Druckmann have both said something similar, with the latter referencing the delay of TLOU.

@JohnnyShoulder Oh, I’ve seen enough business-speak to know that “finalizing the process concerning current gen consoles” does likely mean “Houston, we have a problem.” Not to say it’s not fixable. But the suits and PR folks like to shroud problems as “opportunities for improvement” and the wording like that. The fact that the delay is only a couple weeks though means it’s likely something small.

But yes, Kudos to CDPR for not rushing something out the door, a la Skyrim on PS3 which created headaches that had to be fixed weeks later. At least I hope the end result is that there’s nothing game breaking on current gen. Not that I plan to play this on PS4. Next gen or not at all, as far as I’m concerned.

The early bird gets the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.

@Th3solution Oh yeah I know they wouldn't say the current gen versions are a mess, but still it is a bit much to think that from what was said. I'm not that naive lol, just maybe trying to be a bit optimistic instead of all the doom and gloom that seem to be cool to do these days.

I’m calling it now, Cyberpunk’s current-gen version is going to be the Vampire The Masquerade: Bloodlines of this gen.
