All About CD Projekt RED's Sci-Fi Game

CD Projekt RED is well known for The Witcher franchise. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has been an unabashed success, and their very next major game will mark the company's first serious foray into sci-fi. When is the Cyberpunk 2077 release date? What platforms is Cyberpunk 2077 releasing on? We'll tell you everything we know!

What is Cyberpunk 2077?

Cyberpunk 2077 is, at its core, a role-playing game very similar in style to The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim or The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. One key difference, however, is that this game is set in a futuristic cyberpunk setting in a metropolis called Night City.

 
 

Based on the Cyberpunk tabletop game, Cyberpunk 2077 tells the story of your own character working their way through a world of cybernetically augmented rogues, criminals, and downright villains. There will be a ton of stuff for you to do in this game—and you'll be able to play it with your very own style.

When is the Cyberpunk 2077 Release Date?

The Cyberpunk 2077 release date has been delayed yet again to December 10, 2020, but that release date only applies to some platforms. A release date for next-gen consoles will be the same as the PS4 and XBox One; one platform, however, hasn't even received an announcement just yet.

When is the Cyberpunk 2077 PC Release Date?

The Cyberpunk 2077 PC release date will be Decemvber 10, 2020. This will be the first wave of releases for CD Projekt RED's sci-fi cyberpunk game, although it certainly isn't going to be the last.

When is the Cyberpunk 2077 PS4 Release Date?

The Cyberpunk 2077 PS4 release date is December 10, 2020—the same date as the game's PC launch. If you're thinking about waiting for the PS5 to get this, you won't have to. The PS4 version of this game will work day one on the PS5. That means that the PS5 Cyberpunk 2077 release date is likely the same as the launch day for that console.

 

When is the Cyberpunk 2077 PS5 Release Date?

The Cyberpunk 2077 Ps5 release date will be December 10, 2020.. As with the Xbox, anyone who purchases the PS4 version of the game will be able to play it on the next-gen PS5 when it launches.

When is the Cyberpunk 2077 Xbox One Release Date?

The Cyberpunk 2077 Xbox One release date is December 10, 2020, the same as the PC and PS4. Much like the PlayStation 4 version, you'll be able to play Cyberpunk 2077 on the Xbox Series X with the copy you buy for the Xbox One.

When is the Cyberpunk 2077 Xbox Series X Release Date?

The Cyberpunk 2077 Xbox Series X release date will be December 10, 2020. The developers have outright stated that Xbox One copies of the game will work on the Xbox Series X on launch day.

When is the Cyberpunk 2077 Nintendo Switch Release Date?

There's no Cyberpunk 2077 Nintendo Switch release date just yet, much less a confirmation that it's coming to that platform. While CD Projekt Red has managed to make The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt work on the Nintendo Switch (and even add cross-save support), the hefty graphics in this sci-fi game might be too much for the Nintendo Switch.

 

When is the Cyberpunk 2077 Stadia Release Date?

After the the developers subtly confirmed its existence in a recent press release, the Cyberpunk 2077 Stadia release date will likely be December 10, 2020 — assuming that it isn't delayed as the base game already has been multiple times.

Everything We Know About Cyberpunk 2077 Release Date DLC

Will There Be Cyberpunk 2077 DLC?

Yes, there will be Cyberpunk 2077 DLC. Much like The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, CD Projekt RED plans to release free DLC; there may possibly be paid expansions as well. The company hasn't revealed the Cyberpunk 2077 DLC details just yet, but we can probably expect it to be as good as the DLC in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt at the minimum.

Will There Be Cyberpunk 2077 Microtransactions?

It's unlikely that will be any Cyberpunk 2077 microtransactions. An interview in late 2019 with CD Projekt Red inquired about the topic and the Cyberpunk 2077 developer gave a strong indication that we wouldn't be seeing any microtransactions in this game.

"I think it's a bad idea to do microtransactions after you release a game," said CD Projekt Red's Krakow Office Head John Mamais in an interview with GameSpot. "It seems like it's very profitable, though. It's probably a hard decision for the guy that runs the business to decide if we should do it or not. But if everyone hates it, why would we do something like that and lose the goodwill of our customers?"

Is Cyberpunk 2077 Multiplayer?

There will be Cyberpunk 2077 multiplayer, but you're going to have to wait for it. CD Projekt Red has expressly confirmed that multiplayer is in the works. Judging by CDPR's tweet on the matter, the odds are good that we will indeed receive multiplayer gameplay of some sort, but we'll probably have to wait until several months after the initial Cyberpunk 2077 release date.

Will There Be a Cyberpunk 2077 Beta?

No, there will not be a Cyberpunk 2077 beta. The developers addressed the subject by responding to a fan's question in early 2019, expressly stating that there are "no plans" for an open beta or a closed beta.

Will There Be a Cyberpunk 2077 Demo?

As best as we can tell, it doesn't look like there will be a Cyberpunk 2077 demo released. It doesn't look like the developers have publicly commented on the matter. Furthermore, a quick glance at CD Projekt Red's Steam developer page shows that they have not released a demo for any of their games, so I don't think we'll see a demo before the Cyberpunk 2077 release date.

Everything We Know About Cyberpunk 2077 Release Date PC specs

What are the Cyberpunk 2077 PC Specs?

The Cyberpunk 2077 PC specs have recently been revealed. Our speculation that the game will probably require at least 8 GB of RAM and a decent, mid-range graphics card was a little off — CD Projekt Red has once again shown an impressive ability to make their gorgeous games work on lower-end machines with the minimum requirement of a GTX 780 3GB or an AMD Radeon RX 470.

Cyberpunk 2077 PC Specs – Minimum Requirements

  • OS: 64-bit Windows 7 or 64-bit Windows 10. DirectX® 12 is necessary to run the game.
  • Processor: Intel Core i5-3570K or AMD FX-8310. Finding a CPUs performance hierarchy chart or comparison website and comparing one's CPU with our minimum is suggested.
  • Graphics: Nvidia GeForce GTX 780 3GB or  AMD Radeon RX 470. Finding a graphics card performance hierarchy chart or comparison website and comparing one's video card with our minimum is suggested.
  • RAM: 8 GB
  • Disk space: 70 GB HDD (SSD recommended)

Cyberpunk 2077 PC Specs – Recommended Requirements

  • OS: 64-bit Windows 10. DirectX 12 is necessary to run the game.
  • Processor: Intel Core i7-4790 or AMD Ryzen 3 3200G

How Does Cyberpunk 2077 Genitals Customization Work?

Believe it or not, you may be able to customize your character's genitals in Cyberpunk 2077. The game's ESRB rating notes that the game will include explicit nudity and "various sizes and combinations of genitals." Considering the customization we've seen so far, it's possible that you will be able to adjust your character's genitals to look however you'd like.

Unfortunately, we don't have more details on this system just yet. Hopefully, we'll learn more about what this aspect of the game's ESRB rating actually means at a future time.

Everything We Know About Cyberpunk 2077 Release Date Limited Edition Xbox One X

What Do You Get With the Cyberpunk 2077 Limited Edition Xbox One X Bundle?

The Cyberpunk 2077 Limited Edition Xbox One X bundle packs in a lot of goodies at a pretty reasonable price. A custom-designed Cyberpunk 2077 Xbox One X with a vertical stand and a stylish custom controller make up most of the cost, but that's not all you get.

What do you get in the Cyberpunk 2077 Limited Edition Xbox One X Bundle?

  • Cyberpunk 2077 Xbox One X 1TB console
  • A vertical stand for the Xbox One X
  • Cyberpunk 2077 Xbox One X controller
  • A digital code redeemable on the Cyberpunk 2077 release date
  • The game's first expansion
  • ...all neatly packaged in a stylish box!

You can buy the Cyberpunk 2077 Limited Edition Xbox One X bundle on Amazon for just over $500 and get all of these goodies delivered to your home on launch day. Bear in mind, however, that this bundle sold out very quickly—you might have to pay a premium to a third-party seller to get it.


Cyberpunk 2077 will leverage CD Projekt RED's years of experience at making quality RPGs in an all-new sci-fi setting. You're sure to spend a ton of time in this lovingly hand-crafted world, and then you'll probably play it all over again in a new way just because you can.
