I ended up just installing the 4K texture pack on Nexus for TW3. Looks great, runs great.

CDPR should stop throwing around with information about possible release dates and just release it when it's done. When. It's. Done. Not when investors say it's done.
They certainly cannot keep that kind of information from investors, especially after reporting negative profits

If they gave enough of a shit about Cyberpunk they could "No Man's SKy" it. Like add the monorail system back in update and fix the A.I., etc.

Even for Hello Games this was a huge undertaking that took years so don't expect a different game from CDPR next year in terms of gameplay.

In the financial call they said that they are now in testing phase for the next gen version and that there won't be new updates till its release, so it should come pretty close.

Also they said that there will be graphical improvements but although "system-level improvements" ("not a revolution" though but still new systems are implemented)

Next gen version and new big expansions would be great.
I really liked Cyberpunk last year even with all the bugs and crashes.

I'm waiting for my free Witcher 3 upgrade on PC to play it again. It's the single player game I have played the most. Don't know how it will feel now that Ghost of Tsushima spoiled me with better than average fighting gameplay.

They said it to their investors in a internal meeting which is public because is a tradeable company... They didnt go to any publication to do an interview....

Bugs, content, performance (on both Xbox 8th gen consoles, don't know about Playstation).
So if they only release one more patch for 8th gen, it had better fix/improve absolutely everything.
Unfortunately, I don't think one year is enough extra development time to make this a good game. It needs a total rebuild.

On PS5, the main problem is that there are about 3 npcs in the entire game. Feels like a ghost town. Completely destroys any sense of immersion.

Profit is positive though (but down)
That is exactly what I meant, thanks) in stock market, as you surely know, you can show biggest profits, however if dynamics shows downwards trajectory - it will hit the stock prices

Yeah, I don't see how this next-gen patch is going to be some glorious visual/performance update AND fix most of those issues. I think late 2022 is a good bet to play this game.

Is the next gen version what is already available on PC? or does it improve anything else?

I hope they meet the target since I bet a lot of people bought it on Black Friday deals for the future upgrade,

When 2022 hasn't even started and they already say "it's STILL on track for 2022", there's a huge chance the upadtes won't make it...
They have done this several times now so we don't have any reason to believe this is the case until we actually see it come out.

I wish one Cyberpunk thread could go by without someone yelling about No Mans Sky. They're completely different things.

I'm more eager to play Witcher 3 next gen right now than Cyberpunk. Still haven't played Witcher 3 on the level it deserves.

Is the Witcher 3 for PS5/XSX only a next-gen port, or are they making considerable improvements other than 4K/60fps?

They haven't detailed the specifics yet but we can assume it's going to be similar to the PC version's fidelity with some options turned down/off.

I'm guessing they will have a 30fps RT mode and a 60fps performance mode.

I'm generally interested in most game news even if I'm not going to play the game but I really don't give a fuck about this, I mean, just shut the fuck up and get it out is my feelings on how they've been acting the last year. Head down, arse up guys.

CDPR is notoriously bad with missing its own deadlines, so don't get your hopes up.

Are these on track versions the same versions that were delayed in October? It's pretty tough to call anything CDPR is doing "on track" right now.
