The current announcement of Cyberpunk 2077‘s delay prompted a bunch of rumors surrounding the explanations behind CD Projekt RED’s choice. One such rumor signifies that the sport was delayed as a result of it didn’t run nicely on the PlayStation four and Xbox One.
God of Warfare director Cory Barlog determined to handle an article overlaying this rumor, explaining why video video games typically run badly till the tip of improvement cycles.
“EVERY sport runs badly till you optimize for the hardware within the remaining push earlier than gold,” he tweeted earlier than including the next context:
In reality, we regularly in all probability do NOT wish to share this as a result of, for some motive, we imagine individuals will bounce to apocalyptic conclusions and get offended. I can’t say I communicate for the business, so fellow devs chime in to disagree or right should you really feel your expertise is completely different, however I really feel this to be true for *most* video games. GAMES ARE VERY UGLY, FOR A LONG TIME, UNTIL THEY ARE NOT. Historically, that’s proper close to the tip.
That is because of the completely fucking bananas stage of complexity and transferring items required to make actually any sport right now. We’re, most of the time, occurring ardour and perception that the imaginative and prescient of this buggy + duct taped collectively ‘factor’ goes to come back collectively ultimately.
To me there may be NOTHING shameful or nefarious in regards to the sport not working nicely in improvement. We ALL clearly wish to launch the smoothest/most bug free expertise humanly doable. Generally we (largely) succeed. Generally we don’t. However it’s NEVER as a result of we didn’t attempt.
In response to a fan who recommended that CD Projekt RED ought to skip current-gen consoles and purpose for the subsequent gen, Barlog stated that such choices have “multi-year” implications and aren’t straightforward to make.
Cyberpunk 2077 will now launch on September 17, 2020. Preorders are reside on Amazon.
