Cyberpunk 2077’s shaky and buggy launch costs founders over a billion dollars in losses.

Cyberpunk 2077 has launched with probably one of the most divided communities in gaming. Although a great game. It’s buggy and glitchy launch, especially on base Xbox One and PS4 costs founders, CD Projekt over a billion dollars. Furthermore, the developers have stated that they admit this game, caused “the loss of gamers’ trust and the reputation”.

Cyberpunk 2077 released with immense hype and excitement among all gamers. In fact some hoped the game to be the next revolution in gaming. Even though the game recieved huge praise from everyone who could play. Mostly the PC community with their jacked machines. The game runs buggy and full of glitch on both last and next-gen consoles. But the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions are absolutely horrendous.

This bad performance disappointed even the die-hard fans of CDPR. Who once made the masterpiece that is the Witcher trilogy.

This massive outcry caused CD Projekt’s share to tumble down from PLN 443 per share to PLN 296. This fall started on December 4th. CD Projekt has apologized and offered refunds which showed a 5% increase in share prices. Resulting in over a billion dollars being cut off.

There is no doubt now that CD Projekt is hell-bent on fixing this game, as the whole company is now at stake. Furthermore, they even issued an apology and assurance for a playable fix on last-gen consoles.

We hope CD Projekt Red fixes the game as soon as possible and gain back their love and respect they collected from their Witcher days. It is always sad to see such talented names in gaming come tumbling down.
