CD Projekt Red: "We have important news regarding Cyberpunk 2077’s release date we’d like to share with you today."
Phew More time for Doom, FFVII, RE3 and Animal Crossing
A PS5 version isn't in the works quite yet, but given how CD Projekt Red takes forever to do anything it may take yet another year to make sure that port is running perfect. Hard to say how long I'd like to wait for a PS5 version.
Guaranteed CDPR have more than a few dev kits for both PS5 and XSX. Guaranteed their game engineers are working to create versions of their game engine/tools for those consoles and they will be doing parallel development throughout the year for them. Sony and Microsoft *want want want* Cyberpunk 2077 on their platforms as soon as possible. They are a key developer for both platforms based on The Witcher 3 sales success and the hype around Cyberpunk 2077. @Forn below: It's not about playing on PS5, but enhanced for PS5 and their toolsets and whatever else there is.
How do people still not understand that PS4 games will play on PS5?
@ chris Dont forget about Series X and the rumored Series "S" too. So that makes 8 platforms to optimize the game for (xb1 s, xb1 X, ps4, ps4 pro, Series X, series S, Ps5 and PC). I'd imagine all that porting/optimization takes a lot of time, especially on a game on this scale and production values.
I don’t see a ps5 version !
@Forn right but there's a BIG difference from designing to PS4 specs and having that just run on PS5 as is, vs. having the game have higher quality assets for the PS5. The latter takes more development and testing. EDIT: To the downvote, this is a matter of dry fact, not debate.
***Dont forget about Series X and the rumored Series "S" too.*** 1. RUMOR. How about we go with what is known before people rely on rumors for anything relevant to the discussion. 2. If it is the same as Series X as far as CPU, which it would be DUMB to not do, it won't be an issue. ***So that makes 8 platforms to optimize the game for (xb1 s, xb1 X, ps4, ps4 pro, Series X, series S, Ps5 and PC).*** 1. Same chip systems are easy to optimize for as most of the work is in CPU and memory management, but those games share the same methods/structures and lower resolution graphics will account for lower memory management needs. Let alone the dev kits will account for tools that facilitate design for both as well as IDE tools for the platforms are built toward it. 2. PC alone will make up most of that optimization always. The work isn't as much as you think it is in comparison, but it's no different than ***I'd imagine all that porting/optimization takes a lot of time, especially on a game on this scale and production values.*** It does, but not where you think it does. Adding a new console is bigger than developing for just the consoles we have now, but all of that is still not as much as the work they have to do for PC optimizations. --- @frostypants: There's been a lot of downvotes based on feelings rather than facts lately and it will continue as the next-generation approaches. But, yeah, big difference there. Just try to ignore them. It will save you a ton of stress.
I can honestly say I don't mind that CDPR delays there games, cause the end result is always worth it. I was upset when TW3 got delayed, but after playing the game and seeing how smooth everything ran, seeing how polished the game was, I could not complain. So take your time CDPR, I've been waiting for years for this game, so a few more months is not gonna hurt.... I will say this though, with that date, I may just wait and get it for the PS5...
Ok what's left to be delayed?? Tsushima?? Please don't...
Series x and ps5 are basicly higher specs same operating os as xone and ps4. They will easily be on those platforms. Just as easy as games are on xbox one x.
dude, even if i tried i would fail.
@UltraNova They do not need to optimise the game for the xbox family of consoles. The game will be playable on the Series X on launch day, along with all the back catalogue of xbox one games.
Yup that's fine with me. I was going to wait for PS5 anyway
Not go happen
What's not going to happen? Me waiting, PS5 releasing, or this delay?
@Muzilguy Lol me too !!
Same. Except I'm going with the Series X version. Unless the PS5 proves to be more powerful. I'll have both consoles day one. So the power of the hardware will be the determining factor on which piece of hardware I buy third party games on.
I was going to get it for PC :(
Yup, same here.
@muzikguy Me as well. I imagine 2077 is going to have ps4's and xbox one's straining and smoking out trying to keep it running. I'm really looking forward to the Series X and the PS5.
Yeah a game likes this deserves the power of the ps5.. might as well wait now, obviously CD PR don’t want to miss out on the install base of the current gen consoles so they will keep quite about a ps5 Version but it will definitely come
Nintendo doesn't give you seizures anymore? Lol😉
Exactly what I think.
No one forces you to play games upon release. This is annoying news. Don't spin it.
But I like to play them on release, especially I'm hyped for them I don't want to wait and then have it spoilt
agreed. a slight relief for me wallet
those are all ancient
Yeah. they did it to avoid the crowd.
the last of us 2 as well
I’ll wait for Doom to be cheap and skip Animal Crossing altogether .
More time to save up for a gaming rig
I'll probably wait for the PS5 version.
at this point, same here.
Why? It will be one of those silly cross-gen games. I hear they will not be any good. How can they? /s It be much better to wait for the Switch version. That one is going to be awesome.
Cross gen games as in fifa 21 on PS4/5 assassins whatever on PS4/5 and same with cod yeah they pretty poor either stay last gen or go all out for next generation problem is they wanna go right down the middle and get as much cash as poss standard with cash grab yearly churn games. I mean they could but doubt myself that they’ll release cyberpunk day1 on PS4 and 5 when the PS4 disc can go straight in the ps5 🤷🏻♂️🤓 ✌🏻 Defo getting mine for switch tho 😅🥴😂
Didn't they mention that this would be patched up for the new consoles?
Possibly it's one of those games I am looking forward to but not on release day. So I can wait a few months get it cheap and play it on PS5 with a PS5 patch hopefully.
I was thinking of waiting for the PS5 version anyway. This just makes it easier.
I feel that. I wanted to wait for the new AMD or Nvidia GPU's coming out this year before playing this, as I expect it to be demanding. More time for other games then!
Yup definitely waiting for the PS5 version at this point.
100 million vs 1 million ps5 version doesn’t make sense!
Unless most upgrade and buy it for PS5 😉
Definitely. I'm surprised it isn't exclusive for next gen in the first place, considering how shit the CPU's are for the current generation.
Xbox series X for me
Good more time for me to dig into FF7r and RE3
Dont forget Nioh 2
I knew something else was going to get delayed.
Yup I told someone on here that FF7 and Cyberpunk would be delayed and they cried no but here we are😂
Man as soon as I saw the title my heart sank into my chest, but whatever man it will be better when it comes I guess but f*ck... When did delays become the new standard?
Ack! I mean, fine, whatever. Good for the game. But this needing to be pushed sucks. I guess we know which game will be ready for PS5 and Series X at least.
Probably because the next gen version is rumored to be exclusive to Xbox Series X and want to launch it close together according to some insiders.
I can't tell if this is serious or a joke about the Series X not having exclusives.
By "insiders" do you mean people who make stuff up online to make themselves feel good or to annoy others? Because no way that's happening. CDPR is not about limiting things from gamers but the opposite. They put their games on Steam, Epic, and other stores even though they have GOG. They put things on all consoles they can, even Switch. They're not going to deny themselves and their fans access to the game by suddenly going exclusive.
Man. Lots of insiders seem to have nothing good about what's coming for Sony in the next gen. It's like a new bad rumor every week at this point. Sony must really be screwing up.
😂😂😂 you wish!
I thought sarcasm would be obvious. I find it kind of funny that people find a new insider rumor every week to say Sony is going to do poorly, or do something not that great, yet MS doesnt have a single bad rumor floating around. It really defies logic, and the more bad rumors that keep piling up, the.harder it is to take any of them seriously.
Quote one single source. I dare you. Just one! One quote, one link, one anything.
Nothing is exclusive anymore. Even Sony will eventually release their games on PC.
Damn, all the big 2020 games getting delays
fuck my life
I'm becoming a dad for the first time in August. Guess what I'm not gonna play after all. And this was my most anticipated game. This sucks huge sweaty redneck ass.
Babies sleep a lot . Play when they are sleeping . They wake up all times of the night but are asleep more than awake . When they are toddlers you won’t have much play time except at night because they never stop moving or needing something . I have a 2&3 year old and my play time has gone down A TON, only when they go to sleep for the night or their mom takes them somewhere .
Then there's still hope 😊 thanks!
There's this guy called Fefe who wished this to happen so everyone should blame him!
PS5 enhanced version for me it is then.
My wallet is saved!!!
My social life is saved!
