CD Projekt RED Considered Consoles as ‘First-Class Platforms’ for Cyberpunk 2077

Cyberpunk 2077 really stole the show at E3 2019 with all the new gameplay footage, features, and undoubtedly, the breathtaking Keanu Reeves.

However, console players started getting a little concerned after knowing the PC configurations that ran the Cyberpunk 2077 demo during the convention. CD Projekt RED’s Alvin Liu was featured in an interview with WCCFTech, and reassured fans the development team considers console players as their “first class platforms.”

A lot of people, after seeing last year’s debut gameplay demo and the hardware it was running on, have become a bit wary of how Cyberpunk 2077 could look and run on consoles and low-end PCs. Is that a challenge in terms of optimization for lower-end hardware?

Actually no, we have a very custom engine, the RED Engine. And actually, we’re targeting consoles as first class platforms and it looks amazing there. So obviously, if you spent, you know, $2,000 building your PC rig, it’s going to look better on that. But the graphics are quite amazing for what you’re going to get from Cyberpunk 2077 on consoles and low-end PCs.

Cyberpunk 2077 releases on April 16th next year for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Recently, the studio talked more on their post-launch plans for the title, and how they plan to handle DLC.
