What About PS5 & Xbox Series X|S?

CD Projekt Red have confirmed that the game will be coming to both the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S.

The good news is, due to both consoles' backwards compatibility, Cyberpunk 2077 will be playable on both next gen consoles at launch.

But, players will be using the PS4/Xbox One version of the game, meaning they won't get any of the improved graphics, ray tracing etc.

Cyberpunk 2077 is less than one week away from finally being released.

Soon fans will be able to play the latest entry from CD Projekt Red.

This will be the first game that CD Projekt Red has developed outside of The Witcher series.

Cyberpunk 2077 began development all the way back in 2012, first being shown to the public in 2013.

After numerous delays the game was scheduled to launch back on November 19th, but was pushed back 21 days to allow the developers to iron out some kinks.

It will now release on December 10th.

Day One Patch

DreamcastGuy has revealed that the game will have a 43GB patch on day one.

This is only confirmed for the Xbox One, but it is likely the size won't vary too much across all platforms.

Cyberpunk 2077 went gold shortly before its initial release date, meaning that this version will have been the one manufactured onto physical disks.

So with CD Projekt Red taking more time to work on the game, it is understandable we're seeing a large day one patch.

The update will mainly fix any issues the game might have, as well as improving textures and other graphical elements.
