After years of anticipation, and a gaggle of delays, "Cyberpunk 2077" finally launched on Wednesday evening for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
But some players are reporting that the game suffers myriad issues: Characters that don't animate and guns float in mid-air. Some players have reported outright crashes.
Examples of these bugs are all over social media on Thursday morning:

Though players on all platforms are encountering bugs, performance-related bugs appear to be especially prevalent for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players.
On PS4, for instance, the game runs "between 720p and 900p resolution," and the framerate regularly drops below 30 frames-per-second - the standard for smooth-looking gameplay - according to an analysis by Digital Foundry.
For players on console, that can mean blurry visuals and a game that doesn't run smoothly.
In my experience with the game on an Xbox Series X, I've encountered a handful of bugs: A character who kept turning his head while speaking, and objects in the world that appeared to "pop in" too late, among a few other small things. These issues are relatively typical in big games, and "Cyberpunk 2077" developer CD Projekt Red is promising to address various issues in upcoming updates.
"The journey has just begun," the company said on Twitter, "and we are hard at work on the upcoming fixes and updates to the game."
