Even though Cyberpunk 2077 had more than enough of its share of problems, most of the CDPR fan community hoped that it would get better and it actually did.

But many were still wondering when the game would get optimized for the latest generation consoles, like PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.

Well, it seems that the wait is over now and if you wanted to play this futuristic title on your new device, now is your chance to download and install the appropriate version.

CD Projekt Red has announced a special video briefing coming up. The Polish developer will hold a new Red Streams event today, February 15.

During the steam, there will be talks about items related to Cyberpunk 2077, and why not, maybe we’ll even find out some spicy new details about the next Witcher title.

Recently, a PS5 edition of Cyberpunk 2077 was spotted on the PlayStation Network, suggesting the official announcement and launch for the Xbox might be coming up soon.

We mentioned the game having some problems at the beginning, but despite technical issues with Cyberpunk 2077 at launch, the game sold nearly 14 million copies in just 21 days.

Another interesting fact is that this is now one of the highest-selling RPGs in the history of video games. It also surpassed 1 million concurrent players on Steam, becoming one of five games ever to do that.

For those of you that remember, these next-gen upgrades were previously promised to arrive in 2021but, just before the holidays, CD Projekt pushed them back into 2022.

And if you thought that this was still a rumor, we’re here to tell you that it’s not the case anymore, as Cyberpunk fans have started pointing out through different social media platforms.

This means that it won’t be long until we also have an improved version of The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt for PS5 and Series X as well.

Excellent news for all the Cyberpunk 2077 console fans out there, as they can finally enjoy their favorite game without relying on backward compatibility.

Improved graphics and maybe some extra features are what the fans hope for, but we’re going to know exactly after we upgrade our existing Xbox One and PS4 versions.

Needless to say that fans who purchased the game will receive this upgrade for free, so you don’t have to worry about that anymore.

But, if you are an Xbox owner and are already asking why isn’t CDPR’s latest title come to Game Pass, we might be able to answer that too.

Developers stated that they don’t plan on associating the game with Microsoft’s pre-paid gaming service back in November 2021, so don’t get your hopes up.

Also, don’t forget that there’s a supposed giant DLC on the way for Cyberpunk, as well as an anime series inspired from the game, so all-in-all still a lot of reasons to be excited about.
