CD Projekt Red's next big role-playing game, Cyberpunk 2077, is due out for PlayStation 4 next April. However, as the launch of the next-gen consoles gets closer, it's become commonplace to speculate that the game will eventually be ported to the next PlayStation 5. It turns out that indeed appears to be the case, although it's not not the case. goes to launch.
According to board member Michał Nowakowski during the third quarter earnings call, the studio is well aware of the future and it would be logical to expect CD Projekt Red to work with these upcoming consoles. . However, whatever the team is working on will not be released next November. "I can only safely assume that it definitely won't be near the launch schedule for those consoles, so I think that's about it."
Of course, the title will still be playable on PS5 thanks to backward compatibility, but it looks like you can no longer hope to pick up a next-gen version of Cyberpunk 2077 with the system at launch. It's not all bleak, however, as the studio's president and co-CEO rushes in but confirms that the PS5 port will come to fruition. "Our games have always been a little bit ahead of the game in terms of technology; they've always played better on powerful PCs. So in many areas we're ready or almost ready to move to stronger specs. From a technical perspective, seems doable."
So you won't be playing Cyberpunk 2077 on PS5 via a port for next year, but it's very safe to assume that it will come to the platform natively in the future. Are you going to refrain from buying the PS4 version of the game? Wait in the comments below.
