Cyberpunk 2077, one of the most-anticipated games of the year will be released on Xbox consoles and other platforms next month on December 10. If we’ve already seen the game running on PC, developer CD Projekt Red, which has a marketing deal with Xbox for Cyberpunk 2077, showed the game running on Xbox One X and Xbox Series X for the first time today.
You can see various gameplay sequences recorded alternatively on Xbox One X and Xbox Series X in the 10 minutes video below. As an open-world game set in a city crawling with people, Cyberpunk 2077 is expected to push current-gen consoles to their limits, though the Xbox One X gameplay footage actually looks really good. How the game will run on the base Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles is another story, though.
CD Projekt Red has been working on Cyberpunk 2077 for a long time, and the game has also been delayed multiple times. The next-gen versions of the game for Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 actually won’t be released until next year, though the Xbox One version of the game will provide a free next-gen upgrade through Microsoft’s Smart Delivery system. In the meantime, Xbox Series X and Series S owners will be able to run the Xbox One version of the game via backwards compatibility when it's released on December 10.
The Polish developer currently has a lot of pressure on its hands to deliver a game that can live up to The Witcher 3's success, which crossed 50 million sales back in May. CD Projekt Red’s previous blockbuster RPG will also get a free next-gen upgrade next year, and that should keep the developer very busy in the next couple of months.
