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.

However, this won't be at launch and will instead be released hopefully sometime in 2021.

After 8 years of development, players will soon be able to explore Night City.

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.
