Cyberpunk 2077 was released this week, receiving high marks from reviewers. However, all reviews were written based on the PC version, while the console version of the game has big problems. Amid technical difficulties, some gamers began to worry that other long-awaited games might face similar problems if developers rush to release release dates without making sure everything will be ready on time.
Cyberpunk 2077 was announced back in 2012, before the PS4 and Xbox One consoles were even out yet. Eight years later, in 2020, the game boasts impressive graphics on the PC. The game on this platform has its own problems, but compared to consoles, everything is still good here. Cyberpunk 2077 runs at 60 fps on PS5 and Xbox Series consoles, but there are many bugs that can spoil the experience of the game.
Against this background, fans of Rockstar games expressed the opinion that they would rather wait for the release of GTA 6, but will receive a polished game with a minimum of technical problems on launch day. Even if this means a delay in release until 2024 (rumored to be the release of the new GTA part in the fall of 2023).
Some people think Cyberpunk 2077 is a good example of why developers shouldn’t be announcing games many years before release. So Rockstar’s silence on the next GTA game is more of a positive signal. This means that the developers devote most of their time to the creation of the game, without being distracted by marketing and other advertising activities. After all, even creating a private presentation at a game show can take a team weeks of time.
In the meantime, you can reflect on what open-world wonders Rockstar will achieve thanks to the capabilities of the next generation consoles. Graphics are a matter of course, but it’s already hard to surprise her, where the variety of mechanics, the convincing world and the level of immersion in the gameplay are more important.
