Cyberpunk 2077 developer CD Projekt has unveiled extra about its designs for the PS5 and Xbox Sequence X versions of the recreation.
Cyberpunk 2077 launched with a prolonged record of game-breaking bugs and general performance challenges, notably on PS4 and Xbox Just one.
Points had been so severe that Sony pulled the match from PSN, as some shoppers demanded refunds.
Pointless to say, this has had a bit of a knock-on effect when it comes to the cost-free PS5 and Xbox Sequence X enhance.
With CD Projekt understandably concentrating on correcting the activity on PS4, Xbox Just one, Stadia and Personal computer, the following-gen upgraded model has been provided a afterwards than anticipated release date.
In accordance to responses created by CD Projekt’s Marcin Iwinski, the PS5 and Xbox Series X up grade is not likely to be accessible right up until the next 50 % of the year.

“We’re aiming for the next fifty percent of the year and we’ll reveal extra when we have more to share.”
While it can be lousy information for fans ready to perform it with all the next-gen updates mounted, you are unable to blame CD Projekt for focusing on the PS4 and Xbox 1 versions.
Cyberpunk 2077 is currently playable on the PS5 and Xbox Sequence X through backwards compatibility, it can be just not absolutely optimised.
The present variations of Cyberpunk 2077 will get a few of chunky updates in the coming weeks, beginning with a patch in the future ten times.

Lengthy-time period ideas consist of absolutely free DLC later on this spring/summer season, as well as larger expansions at a afterwards day.
For what it can be worth, Cyberpunk 2077 has all the makings of an fantastic game, as soon as CD Projekt fixes all of the bugs and glitches.
The game has a lot of character, a good deal of entertaining missions, and a wonderful open up-world location in Night Town.
The most significant challenge right now is that when you do get pulled into the game planet, it can be not extensive right before it spits you again with just one of its weird glitches. Worst still is when the game crashes halfway through a mission and you have to begin again.
Hopefully the PS4 and Xbox One particular variations will begin to fulfil their opportunity adhering to the release of the next couple of key updates.
