Cyberpunk 2077 launch issues and the good and bad of The Game Awards - it's the Eurogamer next-gen news cast!

Patch me in.

Wow! What a week it's been. Not only have we had the launch of Cyberpunk 2077 but we had The Game Awards and all the good, bad and downright ugly it brings. So, absolutely bucketloads for Eurogamer reporter Emma Kent and news editor Tom Phillips to discuss in this week's next-gen news cast!

We start with the behemoth that is Cyberpunk, which finally came out this week eight years after it was announced. It's a mega hit - that kind of rare, all-encompassing video game hit that dominates all before it. But it has launched with some remarkable issues. Glitches here, hilarious bugs there, and on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One a mess of low framerates and resolutions. We ask, should CD Projekt have cancelled Cyberpunk 2077 on last-gen consoles, and waited to launch on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X in 2021?

We then move on to The Game Awards, which saw some eye-catching announcements as well as some proper head-scratchers. Check out our Video Game Awards round-up for all that's worth knowing about - including Ark 2 starring Vin Diesel.


So! Please join us in the video below to run through the week that was. It was quite something.
