I honestly didn't think about that so much, I only got the info that CDPR are not 100% sure they can release next gen patches for Witcher and cyberpunk by the end of the year. Which seems to be the point of the news to me. Reading through the lines, they seem more optimistic for the Witcher but maybe it's me. That being said, I'd find extremely ridiculous if one or both are delayed to 2022, but again, it's me. And my goddamn PS5 that can't run a game with acceptable graphics and performance.The context is important, the article makes it sound like an unsolicited statement during the financial report. Which it wasn't, it was a caveat response to a very direct and specific question.
My point was if CDPR had felt the need to include it.... then a delay is likely. But they didn't and they said they are on schedule but they can't make "assurances" which is very different.
To address the off topic of DLC Vs expansion, it seems like the whole situation is becoming more like a problem than a good thing because people are expecting too much. Surely CDPR has stated that we'll get same stuff as Witcher 3, but the fact that expansions are literally DLC in common knowledge, is not helping less informed people to understand the difference CDPR is claiming. While it has worked so far since people like the idea of having stuff for free, some people are now realising that reality doesn't match their expectations. Surely free stuff is appreciated, but do we actually need a free red jacket 9 months after release? I don't know, and to be honest I don't really care
