Review: Cyberpunk 2077 is nearly unplayable on PS4
Despite a bug-ridden debut, Cyberpunk 2077 became the best-selling game on Steam at the end of 2021. The title racked up an 84% positive rating on Steam, and gamers who reviewed the game from patch 1.31 with over 100 hours in the game, described the title as a worthwhile and “stunning” purchase last year.
In November 2021, Adam Kiciński, President and Co-CEO of CD Projekt Group, revealed that a version of the game for current generation game consoles would be released in the first quarter of 2022. The game was previously scheduled to be released on Sony PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series. S/X platforms last year, but was postponed to this year.
Meanwhile, the game is set to see a major expansion later in 2022, which would incur fees for players who own the original title. CD Projekt is also working on a current-gen console version for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
