Cyberpunk 2077’s PS5 and Xbox Series X/S Versions Will Use “All the New Functions and Technical Possibilities” of New Consoles

Let's hope it's running well on last-gen consoles well before that.

Cyberpunk 2077’s launch has been a much bigger mess than anyone could have predicted, and CD Projekt RED are going to have a lot of work ahead of them as they attempt to get the game running well on PS4 and Xbox One with a number of upcoming patches. Following that, of course, the game is also scheduled to release dedicated next-gen ports for the Xbox Series X/S and PS5, and according to CD Projekt RED, players can expect it to fully leverage all the new features that next-gen hardware will enable.

Speaking in an interview with Bloomberg (via Push Square), CD Projekt co-founder Marcin Iwiński said, “With the next-gen update, we’ll use all the functionalities or the new functions and technical possibilities provided by the new platforms.”

Based on his statement, we can probably assume that Cyberpunk 2077 will feature support for ray-tracing on both Xbox Series X/S and PS5, while PS5-exclusive features like haptic feedback, adaptive triggers, and Activities are also likely to be supported.

As for when that next-gen patch arrives, the answer to that question is up in the air right now. The game is scheduled to launch for the new consoles some time in 2021, but CD Projekt RED doesn’t yet know how its messy launch will affect all of their post-launch plans.

Cyberpunk 2077 is currently available on PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Stadia. You can read our console review for the game through here, and our PC review through here.
