Cyberpunk 2077 is out after 8 years of development. The large-scale futuristic metropolis and its immediate surroundings are already available for immersion, but in its current form the CD Projekt RED game leaves much to be desired from a technical point of view. Considering that she was repeatedly transferred this year, it is not very joyful to see such a state, however, you have to deal with what is. Especially if you really want to play.
Apart from performance issues, which will be addressed through optimization, the developers will have to patch a lot of animation issues, improve the AI, and pump up the driving. But what is sadder is that some simply cannot start the game.
