Last week, CD Projekt Red announced that it was delaying Cyberpunk 2077. It's a hefty delay, too -- the open world role-playing game has been pushed all the way into September when it was originally planned for an April release. Time and again, the Polish developer has said that the game is only planned for current-gen consoles, but now that it's seemingly launching so close to the PlayStation 5 -- expected to hit in October or November -- fans have started to wonder whether things have changed.
But according to CD Projekt Red, the studio's plan remains the same. In the company's latest investor's call, it states that while it's "thinking" about the next PlayStation and Xbox, "Cyberpunk is right now heading for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Nothing has changed in regards to the plans".
It adds: "We’re of course looking at the next generation all the time. We’re privy to a lot of information on what’s going on with these platforms, but frankly speaking, we have nothing to share now related to that."
So yes, Cyberpunk 2077 is still aiming for a PS4 release, but honestly, can you see it skipping PS5? Even if it isn't on Sony's next-gen system at launch, we think an eventual re-release is nailed on. Of course, we don't yet know the ins and outs of Sony's plans for backwards compatibility, making these kinds of scenarios more difficult to predict, but we just can't see a future in which Cyberpunk 2077 -- easily one of the most anticipated games of the last decade -- is confined to current-gen consoles.
