Cyberpunk 2077 Could Be Cross-Gen, CD Projekt CEO Says

Cyberpunk is all about the future after all.

CD Projekt Red is hard at work on Cyberpunk 2077, the studio's first major game since wrapping up The Witcher trilogy. While the studio has repeatedly stated that Cyberpunk 2077 is well into development for current platforms, CD Projekt's CEO hasn't ruled out next-gen platforms either.

During a financial results meeting for FY 2018, CD Projekt CEO and president Adam Kiciński told investors that "if there is an opportunity for [CD Projekt Red] to launch Cyberpunk for another generation, we would want to do this probably."

Note, Kiciński doesn't say Cyberpunk 2077 is next-gen, but rather it could be cross-gen. Much like the games that released at the tail end of the PS3/Xbox 360 era, like The Last of Us and Grand Theft Auto 5, were quickly made available on PS4 and Xbox One consoles with upgraded features. Something similar could be in the cards for Cyberpunk 2077, granted it launches early enough to beat the next-gen consoles to market.

CD Projekt Red went on record several times to state that Cyberpunk 2077 is "aiming" for current-gen consoles and that it won't be hindered by the current hardware. In fact, Kiciński says Cyberpunk 2077 is in an "advanced state" and is firm in its direction and design. So new gaming trends or hardware won't influence the direction of Cyberpunk 2077 at this stage.

Kiciński also talked briefly about a new game being developed by CD Projekt Red. Development on the next title has begun by a small team, but it's being made with the same level of quality as Cyberpunk 2077 in mind.

If Cyberpunk 2077 releases across multiple generations, would you wait to purchase it on a possible next-gen console? As of now, Cyberpunk 2077 is slated for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Check out our Cyberpunk 2077 guide for our full coverage.
