Pre-Order Because You'll Get Next-Gen Upgrades
You can pre-order Cyberpunk 2077 without worrying about your next console.
Later this year, Microsoft will release Project Scarlett, now known as Xbox Series X. The console will replace the Xbox One X as the company's flagship and it will do with some major upgrades. The company is also launching a cheaper Xbox Series S.
If you're planning to buy Microsoft's new console, or even if you aren't, you won't have to stress about Cyberpunk 2077.
CD Projekt Red says that owners of Cyberpunk 2077 for Xbox One will receive the Xbox Series X upgrade for free when it becomes available. The company adds that "gamers should never be forced to purchase the same game twice or pay for upgrades."
The same goes for PlayStation 4 owners who upgrade to the PlayStation 5. CD Projekt Red says the company will push an upgrade to Cyberpunk 2077 that will allow it to take "full advantage of the next-gen hardware." This upgrade is also free.
The developer says that while next-gen versions of Cyberpunk 2077 are in the works for the Xbox Series X and PS5, they will be released after the game arrives on current platforms.
The upgraded version of the game won't launch with the new consoles either. It will be released sometime after they arrive on shelves this fall.
Cyberpunk 2077 will also be backwards compatible with both next-gen consoles.
