At long, long last, Cyberpunk 2077 is finally almost upon us. CD Projekt RED’s long-awaited RPG is out in less than a week, and the millions who have been counting down to its launch for the past few months and years are going to continue to do that right until the very last second. Thankfully, CDPR have now confirmed exactly when that countdown will end depending on what platform you’ll be playing on, and where you’ll be playing.
On consoles, Cyberpunk 2077 will unlock at midnight local time no matter where you are, so that’s easy enough. On PC and Stadia, however, the game will unlock simultaneously across the globe at midnight GMT. To help you figure out what that means for your local time, you can check out CDPR’s tweet below.
Meanwhile, pre-load timings have also been confirmed. Pre-loads are live now on Xbox One already, while they will be available for PlayStation players two days before the game’s launch. Of course, if you’re planning on playing the game on a physical copy, none of this will apply to you. You might even get your copy early- if you do, CDPR has a special request for you.
Cyberpunk 2077 will release on December 10 for the PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Stadia, and will also be playable on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S via backward compatibility. Its photo mode was recently shown off with a new trailer- check it out through here.
CD Projekt RED has given assurances that the game will run “surprisingly” well on base PS4 and Xbox One consoles. Meanwhile, if you’re going to be playing it on PC, you can check out the system requirements through here.
The wait is almost over!
