CD Projekt Red co-founder Marcin Iwiński spoke in a video message about the future plans for Cyberpunk 2077 and apologized for the poor performance of the game on the consoles, mainly of the older generation.

In addition to the knowledge that David Guetta is apparently a founder of CDPR, the periods mentioned for the two upcoming updates are particularly interesting. Within the next ten days should give a patch with the first important improvements, followed by a even bigger patch after another week.

In the video and in a later one Q&A CDPR tries to explain how the game's poor performance came about. As in previous statements, the problems of the game on the old consoles were too extensive to be fixed until the release. Iwiński explains that The gap between the platforms didn't look too problematic at first, but was then underestimated in the end.

With the two patches, a roadmap for 2021 was also announced:

CDPR announced that it would first concentrate on fixing the various problems and only then on the planned free DLCs to publish. The Next-gen update was postponed to the second half of 2021. The DLCs are there before the next-gen update comes, which is the only thing that can be said based on this more than vague roadmap.

On Crunch should be waived according to the Q&A in order to integrate the planned improvements into the game as quickly as possible. Still, the game should be back on the PlayStation Store as soon as possible.
