's launch was rocky to say the least, though it was clear the PC version looked and performed a lot better than the game's PlayStation 4
and Xbox One
counterparts. It's been a while since CD Projekt Red
has dropped a major update for the game too, so with a stream happening tonight it looks like we may be getting "the big one".
That is a major update to Cyberpunk 2077 that will include optimisations and support for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S hardware. As per The Verge
's Tom Warren, with the CDPR stream happening at 2am AEST tonight, it looks like the game has already been updated in the Xbox store to reflect Xbox Series X|S enhancements.
Which points to an immediate post-stream release or the big patch coming in the next few days. It's worth highlighting again that it's been a while since the last big update to Cyberpunk 2077 - which focused on fixing a long, long list of bugs and issues. Many are hoping that this next-gen patch will also see the arrival of major overhauls to the game, including new features like the ability to change hair-styles, buy apartments, and even an update to the policing/crime system to make the stunning Night City more dynamic.
Fingers crossed the console version will look a little closer to the PC release - which presents an absolutely gorgeous ray-traced city
