Last week, CD Projekt Red announced that it was delaying Cyberpunk 2077. It's also a considerable delay - the open-world role-playing game has been pushed back until September, when it was originally slated for a release in April. Time and time again, the Polish developer has stated that the game is only planned for current-gen consoles, but now that it seems to be launching so close to the PlayStation 5 - which should be released in October or November - fans began to wonder if things had changed.
But according to CD Projekt Red, the studio plan remains the same. In the company's latest investor call, he states that while he's "thinking" about the next PlayStation and Xbox, "Cyberpunk is currently heading to PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Nothing has changed in terms of relates to plans".
He adds, "We of course look at next-gen all the time. We have access to a lot of information about what's going on with these platforms, but frankly, we don't have anything to share about it."
So yes, Cyberpunk 2077 is still aiming for a PS4 release, but honestly can you see it skipping the PS5? Even if it's not on Sony's next-gen system at launch, we think a possible re-release is nailed down. Of course, we don't yet know the ins and outs of Sony's plans for backwards compatibility, which makes these types of scenarios harder to predict, but we just can't see a future in which Cyberpunk 2077 – easily the one of the most anticipated games of the last decade – confined to current-gen consoles.
