As part of recent financial call
, Michał Nowakowski of CD Projekt Red
, answered a question relating to the possibility of Cyberpunk 2077
being released on additional platforms - including PlayStation 5
and Xbox Scarlett
. The answer wasn't an exact confirmation, but it's safe to assume that it's coming but probably not at launch.
With Cyberpunk 2077 still on track for a April 16, 2020 release - many are no doubt wondering if the game will find its way on next-gen hardware. Outside of backwards compatibility of course.
When it comes to next-gen consoles, I mean – our game is coming to the present-gen consoles, and this is what we have announced, and of course we do have insight into what’s around the corner; into what’s happening with PlayStation and Xbox, and we are watching it closely, and one may probably safely assume that at some point we may do something with next-gen, however we cannot really be very specific what that may be, when exactly that may be. I will only safely assume that it’s definitely not gonna be around the launch timeframe of these consoles, so I think that’s pretty much it.
CD Projekt's CEO Adam Kiciński added that with the PC version of Cyberpunk 2077, the game is already being developed with cutting-edge technology in mind and that a transition to a higher fidelity version shouldn't be too difficult.
