The Cyberpunk 2077 Next Gen Update has relaunched the game onto the Xbox Series X/S and PS5, following the glitch and bug-ridden release on PS4 and Xbox One.
CD Projekt Red appears to have put a lot into this ‘soft relaunch’ of the game, with the 1.5 Patch having also been released at the same time as the Next Gen Update.
Before the launch, there was a ton of information released concerning the update to Cyberpunk 2077 on Xbox Series X/S and PS5, including the future of Cyberpunk series as a whole.
There was a lot of information given by CDPR during the financial review in November 2021, with confirmation regarding the 1.5 Patch and the Next Gen update, which are believed to be separate concerns.
Here’s everything you need to know about the Cyberpunk 2077 Next Gen Update:
UPDATE 15th February 2022: The Next Gen Update has officially been launched today!
Original: CDPR has already confirmed that the Next Gen Update will be shipping at the same time as Patch 1.5, but unfortunately, we do not currently have an availability date beyond Q1 2022.
CD Projekt Red has confirmed that the Next Gen version of Cyberpunk 2077 will be free for all players who already have the game.
This was welcome news for a ton of players, as some have had the game since the initial launch date in December 2020 and paid $60 for the original version that was glitched and bugged from day 1.
Players who also got a hold of the game cheaply on Black Friday will also be getting even more value for their money if they have a next-gen console!
UPDATE 31st January: The PS5 version appears to have leaked onto the PlayStation Store!
UPDATE 19th January 2022: A new leak indicates that the release of the Next-Gen version is imminent.
UPDATE 3rd January 2022: Leaks indicate that the “soft reboot” of the game will be called the Samurai Edition.
UPDATE 16th February: What size is the new update? Find out here!
UPDATE 7th February 2022: Fans have revealed their wants for the next-gen update!
UPDATE 14th December: Keanu Reeves has admitted that he has never played Cyberpunk, despite CDPR saying that he “loved” it. Well, that’s awkward.
UPDATE 4th December: Check out what CP2077 could look like when the update is released!
CDPR has confirmed that the Next Gen Update will include “graphical updates and system-level improvements,” and that the Update should be considered separate to the 1.5 Patch that will be affecting all platforms.
This means that PS4, Xbox One, PC and Stadia users will also be getting the benefits of the 1.5 Update, but it is not confirmed if the Next Gen Update will be coming to PC and Stadia as well as Xbox Series X/S and PS5.
