June has been a big month for Cyberpunk 2077, some six months after its release. For one, Sony agreed to bring the game back to the PlayStation Store, from which Cyberpunk 2077 had been absent since last year. Additionally, CD Projekt Red released the game's first patch update since March. Patch 1.23 does contain some Xbox-specific fixes, but there are no PlayStation-specific ones for some reason.
Now, Adam Kiciński, CEO of CD Projekt Red, has extolled his views on the state of Cyberpunk 2077 on last-generation consoles. CD Projekt Red is due to release a next-generation upgrade for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series consoles later this year. Still, these current-generation consoles have not had many issues running Cyberpunk 2077 beyond what also affects the game's PC version.
According to IGN Poland and TVN24, Kiciński and CD Projekt are now happy with Cyberpunk 2077's performance and stability on consoles. Apparently, the company will continue fixing bugs and glitches, although it has not outlined what it is working on. Some faulty mechanics will be addressed too, again, without specifying which mechanics are currently behaving abnormally.
Patch 1.23 has made Cyberpunk 2077 more playable, as we have covered in a separate article. However, CD Projekt Red has not addressed streaming issues that continue to plague Cyberpunk 2077 on last-generation consoles. Strictly speaking, streaming issues are not bugs. In saying that, enemies and objects appearing in front of you out of thin air make Cyberpunk 2077 look buggy. Based on Kiciński's interview with the Polish press, it seems unlikely that CD Projekt Red plans to do much about them, though.
