Required storage space will be “on par with other modern titles,” as per CD Projekt RED.
Yesterday’s reveal event for the GeForce RTX 30 series was special indeed, showcasing the next generation of Nvidia GPUs like the sumptuous RTX 3090. It also revealed how the GPU series’ ray-tracing would look with certain games, like CD Projekt RED’s Cyberpunk 2077. However, during the presentation, a slide appeared that seemed to indicate the game’s size reaching 200 GB or so.
CD Projekt RED Community Coordinator Marcin Momot clarified this on Twitter afterwards, noting that, “The game won’t take up 200GB when installed. You can expect the required HDD space to be on par with other modern titles.” He also stated that while system requirements for PC weren’t available yet, they are “coming soon.” If Cyberpunk 2077 follows the trend of modern triple A titles, then it wouldn’t be surprising to see it hit 70 to 90 GB in total installation size.
Nevertheless, that is better than a whopping 200 GB. Cyberpunk 2077 is currently slated to release on November 19th for Xbox One, PS4 and PC with support for Xbox Series X and PS5 available. A new episode of Night City Wire will broadcast during Tokyo Game Show 2020 later this month so stay tuned for more even more details on the RPG.
While the @CyberpunkGame system requirements are not out yet (they are coming soon, though!), I wanted to address this topic from reddit. The game won't take up 200GB when installed. You can expect the required HDD space to be on par with other modern titles. pic.twitter.com/tRigjPWLfC
