This article contains all the information related to the release of the PS5 version of Cyberpunk 2077. It also has details like the previous release, gamers reviews, and targeted release date.
Introduction to the Game
The PS5 version of Cyberpunk 2077 has possibly been seen in the PlayStation network backend, indicating that the long-awaited next-gen game could be released soon. That is according to @PlayStationSize, which is a Twitter account that keeps tabs on the installation size of forthcoming games.
On Sunday the account posted a tweet of a new important art picture for Cyberpunk 2077, which seems to be the latest cover image for the PlayStation 5 edition of the game. Searching the image on the internet gives no results, which may indicate that this photo will come upon the dashboard for the next-generation edition of the game.
About the Game and Release
In November, CD Projekt said the new-gen editions of Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher 3 were on their way to their release periods.
The new-gen versions of the games were originally slated to launch in 2021, but in October PS5 and Xbox Series X/S versions of both Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher: Wild Hunt were postponed to 2022 with the former due in the first quarter of 2022 and the latter in the second quarter.
Informing its quarterly economic results in November, CD Projekt said both releases are on the way to reaching their target dates. It is indicated that a next-gen version of the game could launch on consoles between late February and early March. But with all the leaks and reports, that is worth taking it with a pinch of salt till a formal publication is made.
Issues With the Previous Release and About the New-gen Version
The upcoming edition of Cyberpunk 2077 will be accessible as a standalone release and as a free upgrade for the next-gen gamers who already have the current-gen editions.
CD Projekt Red will definitely be expecting that a new release for the next-gen version of Cyberpunk 2077 is quite better than the game’s highly unsuccessful launch on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles.
After its original release, the developer gradually settled many lawsuits with unsatisfied investors in December after shareholders believed that they had been misinformed about the game’s performance on the hardware.
The suits came after the game showed a specifically broken phase on last-gen devices and was later on removed for some time for the PlayStation store- with 30,000 returns of their money also issued to players upon their insistence.
