The PlayStation Store has welcomed Cyberpunk 2077 back, but it's not just returning. CD Projekt Red announced that their PS5 version will be updated. It may be one of the most exciting things the company has done in a very long time.
Upgrading that PS5 version may mean many things, but there may be an obvious reason to how. A lot more is available to gamers on the PS5, and a much better experience overall. In order to make their game better, CD Projekt Red might be taking advantage of the PS5's capabilities.
Cyberpunk 2077 PS5 Upgrade Releasing in Second Half of 2021
With a considerable hype train behind it, Cyberpunk 2077 was quickly one of the most highly-anticipated games of 2020. However, when Cyberpunk 2077 launched, it immediately became apparent that it would run horribly on base consoles such as the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. As a result, CD Projekt Red offered refunds to anyone who wanted one. The PlayStation Store ultimately removed Cyberpunk 2077 from it until its quality reached a satisfactory level, and now, months later, it has been reinstated.
In a message on the PlayStation Store, Cyberpunk 2077 suggests PS4 gamers play it on a PS4 Pro or PS5, warning them to stay away from base PS4 consoles. In light of this, some may decide to wait until Cyberpunk 2077's proper PS5 release, and while no official release date has been announced, CD Projekt Red has at least revealed a timeline for the game's upgrade to the next-gen platform.
A PS5 upgrade for Cyberpunk 2077 is on the way from CD Projekt Red during the second half of this year. If you already own Cyberpunk 2077 on PS4 digitally or on disc, a PS5 upgrade is free for you. The PS5 version of Cyberpunk 2077 may take advantage of the unique features of the next-generation console and the more powerful hardware, but the details have yet to be clarified.
Critics gave Cyberpunk 2077 primarily positive reviews because the game ran smoothly on powerful PCs. On the PS5, Cyberpunk 2077 should offer a similar performance and graphics experience to the PC version, so console owners will have a second chance to experience the game. Cyberpunk 2077 will continue to receive patches to fix the game's remaining issues, so it should be considerably better when the PS5 version is released.
The next-generation version of Cyberpunk 2077 may not be the only new feature this year for fans of the game. There is a possibility that the plans for Cyberpunk 2077 DLC could change, but CD Projekt Red has stated that the DLC is currently underway. The release date of the DLC is expected to be late 2021. Cyberpunk 2077's next-generation version and the potential DLC could very well boost the game's reputation this year.
