Good. Cyberpunk should have done the same.
Maybe. They have so many issues, its hard to say if that was even really a issue or if the team simply couldn't do many things.
Consider no next gen version of the fucking game even exist right now outside of the PC version, so its not like they even have that running on PS5 and Series X with all the support of those systems. We going to say we need PS5 for lips to work? We need PS5 for cop chases?
If Watchdogs Legions can exist on past gen with more features, I feel Cyberpunk can very much exist on last gen. I feel the engine used was forced and hurt the development. Look at Mass Effect Andromeda, imagine saying THAT game's real issue was it should have been next gen, as if the team's only issue was that or something. Or.....or....use Unreal Engine 4 and not an engine that the team struggles with. When I look at CP2077, I see a title trying to do shit that doesn't make sense for what its even trying to communicate. They want something that looks really good, proceeds to completely disregard playability. Watchdogs doesn't look as good as CP2077 in many areas, but its goal was to fucking be playable with the hardware given. It can work on last gen, with a different engine and a different team.
Omnipunctual Godot "Is CDPR the new Molyneux?" They worse then Molyneux. He had lofty ideas, but shit the man didn't go out of his way to make fake demos, trailers and a whole list of shit
