Cyberpunk 2077 certainly finds itself in a curious position, given that it’s effectively going to be a PlayStation 5 launch game for many people – despite it technically being a PlayStation 4 release. Yes, developer CD Projekt RED has promised a free PS4 to PS5 upgrade next year, but that’s still some time away. The studio doesn’t want you to wait to pick up its sci-fi RPG, however.
This poster from a European game store has been doing the rounds, after emerging on Reddit overnight:
You’ll note that the title lists its primary platforms, including PS4, and then underneath includes the following message: “Plays great also on Xbox Series X and PS5.” The developer has previously indicated that the release will take advantage of Sony’s next-gen hardware at launch, presumably similarly to the way Ghost of Tsushima is getting a 60 frames-per-second patch.
Of course, we’re going to need to wait for specifics on how the developer has optimised the game for PS5, and with the release date little over a month away we shouldn’t have to wait too much longer. Curiously, we’re yet to actually see this title running on console, so let’s hope additional footage is right around the corner.
