Cyberpunk 2077 has been spotted as an optimised title on the Xbox Store, ahead of CD Projekt’s scheduled video stream later today. The popular role-playing game could soon be available in an enhanced version for Microsoft’s Xbox Series S/ X and PlayStation 5 consoles, which may be announced at the event today. The Polish video games maker previously revealed that a current-generation version of the game and a major update to the game were scheduled for Q1 2022, which suggests users on the latest console models could soon have access to an optimised version of the title.
According to a report by GameSpot, Cyberpunk 2077 (Review) has been listed as an “optimised” title on the Xbox Store alongside Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Sea of Thieves, the Grand Theft Auto Definitive Edition trilogy and House of Ashes. Meanwhile, the publisher announced on Monday that it is set to host a new REDstreams event today at 4pm CET/ 8:30pm IST. CD Projekt is expected to announce an optimised version of Cyberpunk 2077 for Xbox Series S/ X and PlayStation 5 consoles during the live stream.
Despite experiencing a bug-ridden debut Cyberpunk 2077 rose to the top selling game on Steam at the end of 2021. The title had racked up an 84 percent positive rating on Steam, and gamers who reviewed the game as of patch 1.31, described the title as a worthwhile purchase and “breathtaking”, with over 100 hours in the game, last year.
In November 2021, Adam Kiciński, President and Joint CEO of CD Projekt Group, revealed that a version of the game for current-generation consoles would be released in Q1 2022. The game was previously scheduled to release on Sony PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S platforms last year, but was postponed to this year. Meanwhile, the game is set to get a major expansion, which is said to involve a charge for gamers who own the original title. CD Projekt is also working on a current-gen console version for The Witcher 3.
