A lot of gamers are eagerly waiting for Cyberpunk 2077 to arrive for PC and consoles in September since all hints are pointing to a major blockbuster game. The story is compelling, the graphics are mind-blowing, the soundtracks are majestic, and the gameplay announces itself to be beyond any expectations.
Cyberpunk 2077 is expected by many experts to compete for the title of the best game of 2020, and its release is actually preparing something even bigger.
Developer CD Project Red itself confirms it
Xbox Series X upgrade is coming with the launch of Cyberpunk 2077 for Xbox One consoles. What this means is if you buy a copy in 2020 and then upgrade towards the new Xbox console, you’ll have the chance of playing a better version of Cyberpunk 2077.
Michal Nowakowski, who is the SVP of business development at CD Projekt, tells us:
“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.
“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.”
Since Cyberpunk 2077 won’t be available only for consoles, knowing the minimum system requirements for the PC version is a ‘must’:
- Operating System: Windows 7 at 64 bit
- Processor: Intel Core i5-2500K 3.3GHz or AMD FX-8320
- Graphics card: AMD Radeon R9 380 or NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 2GB
- VRAM: 2GB
- Memory: 8 GB RAM
- Storage space: 70 GB Hard drive space
- DirectX 11 Compatible Graphics Card
While we’re all hoping that a similar thing will happen with the PS5 console, Sony didn’t provide for the moment any information for supporting or denying the hypothesis.
