Cyberpunk 2077 Will Be Backwards Compatible With Both Next-Gen Consoles, CDPR Confirms

As the developers of CD Projekt confirmed, Cyberpunk 2077 can already be played in a beefed-up version on the Xbox Series X or PS5 at launch. The developers are also working on a detailed upgrade that will be made available at a later date.

During the course of yesterday, those responsible at CD Projekt RED admitted that the ambitious role-playing game Cyberpunk 2077 will be delayed again, this time to November of the year. In a recent release, the Polish studio went back to this topic and pointed out that the delay of the main game means that the multiplayer component of Cyberpunk 2077 will also appear accordingly later.


A specific release period was still not mentioned. Furthermore CD Projekt RED announced an extensive upgrade for the Xbox Series X and PS5. As the developers confirmed, Cyberpunk 2077 can be played on the two next-generation consoles and is already being given an update at the launch, which will provide minor technical improvements on the PS5 and Xbox Series X.


A more extensive upgrade with further improvements is also in the works, but will probably not appear before 2021. After all, it was promised that the upgrade would be provided free of charge. Due to the renewed postponement, Cyberpunk 2077 is now scheduled for release on November 19, 2020, and thus in the highly competitive Christmas season.

An incident that CD Projekt claims to be of little concern. Among other things, the management of the Polish studio assumes that the biggest titles of the video game year 2020 will appear a little earlier and therefore Cyberpunk 2077 will gain enough strength to beat all the odds.

Recall that Cyberpunk 2077 will now release on November 19 on PC, PS4 and Xbox One, and on PS5 and Xbox Series X when the next-gen consoles will launch.
