Recently we got official word from CD Projekt Red
that the planned next-gen update for Cyberpunk 2077
had been pushed back to 2022
. With the company updating the roadmap for the game via the official site to reflect that, it now looks like there won't be any updates to the game until early next year.
Which is a little disappointing because we don't really know what the "next-gen console update" for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X will feature. Will it simply be the existing game running smoother on more powerful hardware? Or will it see the arrival of substantial overhauls or missing features?
And as we're getting close to the one year anniversary for the release of the game this new roadmap kind of makes it look like there won't be any new info for a while. Here we see Q1 2022 as the time for updates, improvements, and free DLC. All of this is fine, taking the time to get it right is definitely the right move for Cyberpunk 2077 -- we just hope CDPR takes the time to properly outline its plans for the game as it hits that one year milestone.
