BEAST: The Series X will be the most powerful console on the market


We know that CD Projekt Red will provide a free upgrade for those that buy the game on Xbox One when the new Xbox Series X arrives.

However, that's very different to a full-optimized next-gen version of the game.

Nowakowski left any potential PS5 reveals up to Sony, stating, “It’s PlayStation that first needs to address these issues and then we’re happy to make a comment, but we can’t jump the gun ahead of them.”

It's unlikely there will be any major roadblocks between CDPR and Sony when it comes to PS5 players getting the same treatment as Xbox gamers. However, it is something to keep an eye on if you are set on buying a PS5 and carrying over your Cyberpunk 2077 journey.
