Cyberpunk 2077 is one of the most anticipated titles of the year, there's no doubting that.

The latest CD Projekt release is due to drop on December 10, but there's bad news for those who use an AMD graphics card.

No Ray Tracing at Release

The updated PC system requirements have been officially revealed by CD Projekt in preparation for launch, and it makes for sorry readying for anyone with a RX 6000 graphics card.

Nvidia's GPUs are the only set of GPUs listed in the requirements for running ray tracing on the upcoming title.

Whilst many hoped this was an honest mistake, it has been confirmed that 2077 will not support AMD at launch.

Working with AMD

It's not all bad news though, as Marcin Momot - Projekt Red Community Lead - has confirmed that they are working with AMD to introduce the feature "as soon as we can."

How long this will take remains uncertain, but it offers some relief to those who use the RX 6000 series to know that the talks are already in place, with early 2021 a reasonable estimated release.

Release Date

Cyberpunk 2077 will be released on Thursday, December 10.

The highly anticipated title will be available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and Google Stadia.
