Cyberpunk 2077 release date UPDATE: More GOOD NEWS for CD Projekt Red's PS4, Xbox One RPG (Pic: CDPR)
Cyberpunk 2077 fans have some good news in store today.
We're seeing more and more developers and publishers talk about the next-gen, and there's been talk that Cyberpunk 2077 has been targeting a next-gen launch.
New comments from the development team would suggest this isn't the case, however.
In an interview with level designer Miles Tost, GamingBolt asked about the power the current generation has left in it – and what that means for the launch of the upcoming futuristic RPG.
“Recently released titles have shown us that theres still a lot of juice left in the current generation and I continue to be amazed by whats being done," notes Tost.
“Looking at the games released at the beginning of this generation and comparing them to some of the absolutely amazing looking recent titles, we can see quite an astonishing difference.
"Devs are a resourceful bunch — we figure out new and better ways of using and optimizing tools we work with all the time."
That's good news for gamers wanting to keep the same platform: it basically means that CDPR seems comfortable delivering this game on the current generation of hardware, and it'll arguably looks as good as we've seen it in the various trailers.
This comes as news that CD Projekt Red has partnered with Canadian studio Digital Scapes to help aid development on Cyberpunk 2077.
Staff from BioWare, Radical Entertainment and Relic all form part of Digital Scapes DNA, meaning it's got a very good pedigree and seems more than capable in helping out with some of the heavy lifting in the game.
"The Canadian partner studio will closely cooperate with CD Projekt Red on creating and optimising technological solutions for use in the development of Cyberpunk 2077,"a recently released statement has outlined.
Cyberpunk 2077 is apparently playable from start to finish right now, and the development work on-going is focussed on bug fixes, graphical fidelity, optimisation and more.
We're eager to hear more about the game.
