Polish gaming company CD Projekt RED has announced that it plans a next-generation upgrade for Cyberpunk 2077 in the first quarter of 2022.
Regarding “The Witcher 3,” the next-generation “Complete Edition,” which includes items inspired by the improved video quality and the drama version of Netflix, will be released in the second quarter of the same year.
After repeated postponements, “Cyberpunk 2077” released at the end of 2020 was in a very low quality state, especially for the game console version, so complaints from players continued to accept unconditional returns and refunds. In addition, the PlayStation 4 version was also removed from the store by Sony.
