Cyberpunk 2077 is launching in April 2020, and assuming that the studio's self-imposed deadline is met, that means that the game will be out on consoles ahead of the launch of the next generation of hardware, with the likes Xbox Scarlett and PS5 set to land towards the end of next year.
While CDPR is making do with the power offered to them by the PS4 and Xbox One, the studio is already looking ahead to Scarlett and PS5 and, by the sounds of it, we can probably expect to see Cyberpunk 2077 updated, enhanced and re-released on the new consoles.
"Right now we're focusing on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, but obviously in the future we'd probably like to have Cyberpunk 2077 on the next platforms," lead quest designer Paweł Sasko told Eurogamer. "But that's really a matter for the future, to be honest. Right now we're focusing on these."
"One of the things we learned with The Witcher 3 was, you should not delay working on the console versions, ever," the man from CDPR told the site. "So at all times we have a version running for everything. And of course, the high-end version we're showing running it is completely different to the consoles, the current-gen is starting to get old. So there's some things which won't look as crisp. But the important thing to us is it will be fluid, it will play on your machine. There are limitations for any given hardware, that's a natural thing. But we'll do everything we can to squeeze as much as we can."
Cyberpunk 2077 featured prominently during Microsoft's conference this week and you can see a short clip of gameplay in the trailer below.
