CD Projekt Red may have hinted at the launch window next-gen consoles


Big fans of CD Projekt Red (CDPR) were recently disappointed when the developer announced that its next big game was being delayed. The release date of Cyberpunk 2077 has been moved to 19 November 2020, making this the second time it's been delayed. But it's not all bad news, as this delay could coincide with the launch of next-gen consoles.

After the announcement of the delay, CDPR confirmed that the game will be compatible with next-gen consoles. In other words, if you bought the game on Xbox One or PlayStation 4, you'll be able to use that copy to play the game on the Xbox Series X or PlayStation 5. This is something that many expected, but it's still great to see an official confirmation on it.

Both Microsoft and Sony have stated that their next-gen consoles will be launched in Holiday 2020, which falls around November to December. Coincidentally, the PS4 first launched on 15 November 2020, followed by the Xbox One on 22 November 2020. So, Cyberpunk 2077's new release date and the announcement of compatibility with next-gen consoles is seen as confirmation that the console will be launched around that time.

Of course, the above is just speculation, but the possibility is quite high. Having said that, what do you think about the rumour? Let us know on our Facebook page and stay tuned to for further updates on this.
