We’re entering into a new generation of consoles, and I guess it’s almost fitting that at the same time we’re about to finally see the release of Cyberpunk 2077, a game that we have basically heard about for the entirety of the ending generation. Technically speaking, it’s releasing on that ending gen as there will be no native version for either PS5 or Xbox Series X/S next week when the game does launch, but there are enhancements in tow for those playing on the new machines, and today we possibly found out at least one.
As you’re probably aware by now, copies of 2077 are out in the wild. While we aren’t going to spoil anything, we promise, it does seem the game being out in the wild has given a glimpse of some potential next gen perks. Reddit user scorpo187 says he got his copy of the game early for Xbox. He says that an update has gone live already for the title, and that it helped the game’s bugs and some rough performance.
The bigger surprise though is that he says on the Xbox Series X, it also added an option for Performance and Quality modes. There were apparently pictures to prove all of this, but have since been deleted. It’s interesting because as of now, CD Projekt RED has not commented on the option being available. Presumably it will also be on the PS5, though no one has come forth to confirm it, and it’s rather up in the air if it will exist for the Series S, PS4 or Xbox One. We do have to file this under rumor for the time being considering the source, but nothing here sounds outrageous.
The game is already up for preload on Xbox systems and will be next week for PlayStation systems, with the game unlocking at various times depending on where you purchased it, which you can read about in full through here. Cyberpunk 2077 will release officially on December 10th.
