Cyberpunk 2077 unpatched version needs optimization on consoles as reports come in from different sources.

Cyberpunk has been the most hyped up game of 2020 even after delaying for three times. However, fans have remained faithful despite how it was pushed back nine months from its original release. Now six days prior to its release, some people have got hold of the game and have reported that the game itself has severe issues while running.

Although it is a new game and seeing how they impeded it for nine months we all expected it to run better. But, someone under a post in Reddit quoted, “The unpatched version of Cyberpunk 2077 had a lot of frame drops, crashed in certain places, animations are not optimized. The screen was flickering a lot, and the game crashed a lot.”

The Redditor also quoted, “TONS of repeating NPCs. Like three identical NPCs standing directly next to each other. The game REALLY needs a patch. This version is nowhere near close to ready. I’m just hoping that that patch is magic because damn. But when everything works right. This game is amazing. It lives up to the hype. It really does.”

CDPR had concluded earlier that Cyberpunk needed more optimization for consoles and some sources confirmed that Cyberpunk 2077 has already received a 43.5 GB update. Since it is such a huge game and with the next-gen of consoles getting released this year along with it, we cannot say it is astonishing.

The game is still unreleased so CD Projekt might be working on improving these bugs already. They have worked on this game for seven years and counting, so we all are hoping it lives up to the expectations of everyone involved.
