I guess as an apology it works for some gamers, but I thought it was milquetoast overall.
Acknowledging the broken state of some versions of the game isn’t a big achievement. We knew that. Publicly confirming it is the bare minimum.
Pointing at the old consoles (as if it’s their fault for existing) also seems to be a bit of a curveball in that the implied message here is that the PC version is largely alright. It’s in better shape than what PS4/Xbox One players get served, but it’s not like there aren’t any major glitches or that it delivers everything previous marketing efforts promised. (Not saying it’s a bad game overall - plenty of people here seem to have a good time regardless of the bugs and missing elements.)
That said, there are two big negative points here. Firstly, they’re obviously not commenting on the console embargo restrictions. The intentions of which are very clear. They knew very well what they were shipping, and they did their best to game the scores. Secondly, throwing the QA crew under the bus is not a good look. I’m am fairly certain the state of the game is not down to QA not finding issues.
