CDPR CEO Marcin Iwiński has apologised to fans for the ongoing mess of Cyberpunk 2077. Iwiński has shared insights into the launch of the company's latest game and an update roadmap for Cyberpunk 2077 throughout 2021. The first patch is due this month, with another patch and free DLC to follow later this year. Iwiński has teased the arrival of the update for next-generation consoles, too.

CDPR CEO Marcin Iwiński has apologised to fans for the ongoing mess of Cyberpunk 2077. In short, Iwiński blames the ambition of CDPR to scale down the PC version of Cyberpunk 2077 for last-generation consoles as the reason why there are so many gameplay issues. Iwiński failed to acknowledge how buggy the supposedly superior PC version is though, despite the release of three hotfixes to date. You can listen to the full statement from Iwiński below.

CRPR has also outlined a roadmap of updates for Cyberpunk 2077 throughout 2021. According to the image below, CDPR does not plan to release any hotfixes before Patch 1.1. A second patch will follow after that, with free DLCs arriving a few months later. Finally, the roadmap contains 'free next-gen console update', which appears to have been scheduled for sometime in the second half of 2021.

Sadly, the roadmap does not contain timeframes, so it is unclear when these updates will arrive. Equally, CDPR has not segmented its roadmap into months, so we are unable to estimate when these updates are due, too. Nonetheless, Iwiński had this to say about the timing of Patch 1.1 and Patch 1.2

The first update will be dropping within ten days, and it will be followed by another, more significant one in the following weeks.

Iwiński adds that CDPR will continue to support beyond 2021. However, the update roadmap makes no mention of Cyberpunk 2077 Online, which Iwiński revealed last year would be a 'separate dedicated production'. Iwiński did not refer to the multiplayer version of the game in his address, either. Based on the official roadmap it would seem that CDPR has postponed this until 2022 at the earliest.
