Hoping for a next-gen enhanced version of Cyberpunk 2077 at the launch of PS5 and Xbox Series X? Sorry, but that’s not going to happen.
That’s according to a report, which quotes CD Projekt Red VP of Business Development, Michal Nowakowski. While a next-gen enhanced version appears to be in the works, it will not come out until at least 2021. The good news: people who buy the game on Xbox One will get the Series X version for free. It will be a cross-buy title.
Here’s more from VGC:
“In terms of Microsoft’s console, like I said, we have officially confirmed both the update and the cross-gen availability, meaning that you’ll be able to play the game from the get-go on the next-gen,” Nowakowski said.
“However, when it comes to a proper, full-blown next-gen version, that’s going to come later, we haven’t announced when and I don’t have a new comment here on that.”
“But a patch will be available to everybody who purchases the Xbox One version here and now from the get-go, once that update is live they’ll be able to download that free of charge. That’s the announcement we have officially made and again, I cannot really comment on the policies of the first parties before they officially announce them.”
“There’s no official announcement coming from PlayStation so we really can’t confirm or deny anything,” he added. “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.”
Back in January, Cyberpunk 2077 was delayed until September 12. The developers said they needed more time for “playtesting, fixing, and polishing” of the current-gen version. Hopefully, 14 minutes of Cyberpunk 2077 gameplay will hold you over!
