"Cyberpunk 2077" is the video game event of the end of the year, but not necessarily for the right reasons between multiple bugs and sacrificed console versions -
2017 CD PROJEKT
Cyberpunk 2077 was set to be the video game event of this year, if not of the year, and it is, but maybe not as fans expected.
Neither its creators, the Poles of CD Projekt.
Still, everything was off to a good start with a stock market value of more than $ 9 billion for the studio, eight million pre-orders for the game, and first reviews on Monday, a few days before release, generally positive.

So it was a sign.
The press has indeed been invited to test
only on PC, with the PS4 and Xbox One versions available the day before release.
And the Gamekult site is the first to sound the alarm in full live: “If you have pre-ordered the game on PS4 or Xbox One, you have a few hours left to cancel your pre-order.
These are sacrificed versions, sometimes it looks like a Switch version ”.

It's better on the next gen, but the stock market disaster
Other media take over with scathing tests and ratings, 7/20 at Jeuxvideo.com or 4/10 on Jeuxactu and Gamekult, and the comments that go with: "This is called an abandonment", "Disastrous attire and quite revolting ”… In question a deserted city of its inhabitants, problems of textures, a frame rate at the pick-up, and finally a technique unworthy of the game but also of the machines, where
