Cyberpunk 2077 will be launched in April 2020, about six months before the launch of the Scarlett project and the rumor that PlayStation 5 is supposed to be launched during the holiday season. Will Witcher's ambitious RPG also be integrated into the new consoles? This is something that the developer CD Projekt Red is studying, according to top designer Miles Tost.
He told GamerHubTV that CD Projekt Red is currently focused on the current generation of consoles and PCs, although the studio is also considering next-generation systems. "We are going to watch [next-generation consoles] and go, "Maybe?" But this is not our area of interest at the moment. "
"Of course, we are looking at what is happening in the gaming industry because we are part of it and we must always look forward," he said. "But at the same time, we're a studio that really focuses on the work we're doing now, so we're focusing our attention on the next-generation and PC consoles, who knows? [we’ll support next-gen consoles]. But until that [Cyberpunk 2077 launches in April 2020]we have one thing to do. And as for what I heard, the new generation consoles … Xbox just announced that we will celebrate the holidays of 2020. So, this is not really a concern for us now, because this comes well after the release of our game. "
The Scarlett project is launched by 2020, while the PlayStation 5 was also launched at the time. Just today, the first analyst, Cowen & Company, has released a report in which she confirms that the new Sony system should be marketed in the fall / during the holidays.
The Scarlett project and the PlayStation 5 are already confirmed for backward compatibility. Cyberpunk 2077 should be able to play on the new consoles. Both systems are more powerful than the most robust computer hardware of the current generation. Tost will probably talk about the next-generation consoles in terms of the features that the new hardware could allow Cyberpunk 2077 to achieve.
Cyberpunk 2077 will be released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on April 16, 2020. The actor Matrix Keanu Reeves plays a major role in the game, even though he will not sing unfortunately.
