The user has since said that the game size will be roughly 63.895 GB-71.73 GB.
While 71.73 isn't a huge amount (especially when compared to almost 100 GB behemoths like The Last of Us Part 2, or the ridiculously large Black Ops Cold War, that's still plenty.
When considering a Day 1 patch as well (which is rumoured to be 44.8 GB), the game could easily push close to 100 GB+.
It's worth noting that PS4 doesn't offer a "Smart Delivery" solution, so that'll presumably include 4K textures whether players are on PS4 Pro or not.
On Xbox, expect the file size to be larger if using the Series X, while PC will also presumably add the highest quality textures possible. According to the PC specs, the game will require at least 70GB of space there.
Hopefully, the preload date of December 8 (two days before launch) will also apply to those platforms.
Expect the game to only get bigger in 2021 when next-gen optimisations arrive.
Of course, you can skip downloading altogether by playing on Google's Stadia streaming service.
We'll be updating this piece as we learn more about file sizes and preload dates for Cyberpunk 2077 on other platforms.
We recently got to see the PS4 Pro and PS5 versions in action, but the base PS4 was nowhere to be seen.
We've also got gameplay footage of the game running on Xbox One and Xbox Series X.
