Original Story - Although this potential game of the year candidate has been delayed a countless number of times, Cyberpunk 2077 is moving into the latter stages of development.

CD Projekt Red has not confirmed the specs required to run this massive game yet, but it could be a hefty burden on your PC rig.

It's difficult to anticipate what we will need to roam Night City in all of it's glory.

But, we can offer recommended specifications based on predictions and speculate the optimal hardware you’ll need to power your PC for Cyberpunk 2077.

Latest News

Official System Requirements Set To Be Revealed - 18 September

Ahead of another Cyberpunk 2077 Night City Wire Episode, the developers have hinted at the possibility of revealing the games specs.

Marcin Momot, the Global Community Lead for CD Projekt Red, teased earlier this month that system requirements were coming soon.

Based on a message from the official Cyberpunk 2077 Twitter account, it looks like they could be revealed today.

"We have a small change in the lineup" The studio wrote on Twitter. "we won't be talking about #Cyberpunk2077 music just yet. We will, however, have some cool news that many of you request. Or should we say... *require*?"

It's not direct confirmation, but it's also not exatly subtle, so stay tuned later today (after 5pm BST) for the big reveal.

 

Official System Requirements Coming Soon - 2nd September

Marcin Momot, the Global Community Lead for CD Projekt Red, has informed us that the system requirements are coming soon.

He also addresses the fact that the game will not take up 200GB when installed (this is to address a topic that has popped up on Reddit after the recent NVIDIA showcase).

The required HDD space is "to be on par" with other modern titles.

Cyberpunk 2077 System Requirements

Here are the recommended system requirements for Cyberpunk 2077, based on predictions:

  • CPU: Intel Core i5-4670K 3.4GHz / AMD Ryzen R5 1600
  • RAM: 16 GB RAM
  • HDD: 70 GB of space
  • GPU: AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB or NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070
  • OS: Win 10 64
  • Direct X: Version 12
  • Screen Resolution: 1080p

Optimal Hardware

The specifications of the PC that showcased the Cyberpunk 2077 demo at E3 2018 were pretty powerful, but don’t actually represent a top-end machine, especially now that it has been nearly 2 years since the showcase.

Naturally, at the showcase, CD Projekt Red wanted Cyberpunk 2077 to look as good as possible for the occasion, so the specifications represented the optimal build for the game.

Therefore the recommended specifications will gravitate somewhere below them.

An educated guess would be to reach 1080p with a stable frame rate above 60 FPS – quite the build.

Final Thoughts

Cyberpunk 2077 will offer an awful lot, especially with its new concept, artwork and insanely realistic graphics.

We can already tell that the game will be a blast to play, and we hope that hardware requirements will not get in the way of that.

Of course, the average gamer does not own an Intel Core i7 8700K processor and a GTX 1080Ti, but the shame is that gamers using older generations of hardware might be left isolated and unable to run the game.

But keep your hopes high!

This is, of course, all speculation – and as such, it should all be taken with a sizeable pinch of salt.
