Cyberpunk 2077 “Won’t Take 200GB” HDD Space, System Requirements Coming Soon

In the past hours, the rumor made the rounds that the installation size of the role-playing game Cyberpunk 2077 could amount to up to 200 GB. In the meantime, the developers of CD Projekt RED were also available for comments.

After various delays, the role-playing game Cyberpunk 2077 is now planned for publication in this year’s Christmas time. As part of an Nvidia event, the promising role-playing game was presented in the form of a new trailer showing the title in the native 4K resolution and with the support of ray tracing technology.

Furthermore, a graphic could be seen at the Nvidia event, on which game sizes of up to 200 GB were mentioned. Since the corresponding graphic was provided with a screenshot of Cyberpunk 2077, the rumor quickly spread that the new work by The Witcher makers could be up to 200 GB in size.

In order not to let rumors and speculations arise in the first place, the developers of CD Projekt immediately spoke up and assured that Cyberpunk 2077 definitely won’t devour 200 GB of free memory. The Polish studio is currently unable to give a specific number, but assured the players that the installation size of the game will be on par with comparable titles.

“While the @CyberpunkGame system requirements are not out yet (they are coming soon, though!), I wanted to address this topic from reddit. The game won’t take up 200GB when installed. You can expect the required HDD space to be on par with other modern titles,” said CD Projekt Community Coordinator Marcin Momot.

Cyberpunk 2077 will be released on November 19, 2020, for the PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. At a later date, implementations for the two next-generation consoles of Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 and Google’s streaming service Stadia will follow. However, specific dates have not yet been mentioned here.
