CD Projekt Red confirms next-gen support for Cyberpunk 2077, offering backward compatibility on PS5 and Xbox Series X at launch
Off the back of CD Projekt Red announcing that Cyberpunk 2077 is being delayed to November 2020, a variety of important questions have been asked. A November launch for Cyberpunk 2077 means the game will be launching alongside the PS5 and Xbox Series X, after all. Players will want to know whether Cyberpunk 2077 is either forward or backward compatible, or if the game will have any next-gen improvements. So far, CD Projekt Red has most of the right answers.
In a series of posts in Twitter Friday morning, CD Projekt Red acknowledged that Cyberpunk 2077 would likely be launching alongside the PS5 and Xbox Series X. And while it didn't confirm whether there would be PS5 and Xbox Series X-branded retail copies available at launch, it did the next best thing. CD Projekt Red has confirmed that the current-gen versions of Cyberpunk 2077 will work on their next-gen counterparts.
