Yes, you will be able to transfer your Cyberpunk 2077 save files from PS4 to PS5. This means that if you happen to start the game on PS4 and then play it on PS5 at a later date via backwards compatibility, you can take your progress with you. Lovely.
CD Projekt Red says that as long as you're playing on the same PlayStation account, you should be good to go.
The developer has also outlined three ways to transfer your save:
- Connect to your PlayStation Plus account and upload your saves or
- Transfer your data via LAN cable or wireless connection (WiFi) or
- Use a compatible storage device to copy and transfer your saves to the same PSN account on PlayStation 5.
If you haven't been able to get your hands on a PS5 — not your fault, PS5 stock tends to sell out incredibly quickly — then this news may be enough to convince you to at least start Cyberpunk 2077 on PS4, knowing that you'll be able to continue on PS5 later.
