Ahead of the game’s current December 10 release date, CD Projekt Red has revealed the updated PC requirements for Cyberpunk 2077 and, as expected, you’ll need some pretty hefty hardware if you want to run it at the highest settings.

Cyberpunk 2077’s release date is nearly two weeks away. While most people would say that that means it’s almost here, given the game’s reputation for delays, there’s more than likely not a lot of confidence in that statement. Nevertheless, CD Projekt Red seems convinced, at least for the time being, that it is coming out on time – so much so that it released the fully updated PC system requirements.

As expected from the trailers and screenshots released by the devs, Cyberpunk is going to require a lot from your machine if you plan on using the highest settings with ray tracing. Even the bare minimum settings, which more than likely will run the game at a very low framerate, require some better-than-average hardware. Here’s what you’ll need to run it.

CD Projekt Red
CD Projekt Red has released the updated PC specs for Cyberpunk 2077.

Given the specs above, the game is going to be a powerhouse on PC. That being said, it is nice to see that the developers have optimized it to the point where it only takes up 70 GB on all settings. With games sometimes taking up hundreds of GB nowadays, seeing one below 100 GB is a sight for sore eyes.

Now all that remains is how well the game runs on consoles in comparison to its PC brother. We’ve already seen a bit of gameplay from the Xbox version, but it’ll be interesting to see if the next-gen edition can come anywhere close to the ray-tracing on PC. Especially that nice and relatively low file size.

Twitch veteran and ex-CS:GO pro Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek has been discussing Cyberpunk 2077, explaining what he’s most looking forward to about CD Projekt Red’s upcoming title. 

Cyberpunk 2077 is one of the most anticipated titles of all time. From the studio that brought us the acclaimed The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, there is no reason to suggest that it won’t be one of the best games of the year.

However, despite the anticipation and development team behind it, the game has been delayed multiple times, now set for a December 10 release.

Barring any further delays, fans will be able to jump into Night City just before Christmas. CD Projekt have been keen to emphasize there will be no further delays, but with the ongoing global health crisis we wouldn’t rule anything out just yet.

Cyberpunk 2077 is set for a December 2020 release, unless CD Projekt feel the need to push it back further.

During a November 27 live stream, the ex-Cloud9 CS:GO pro turned his thoughts to Cyberpunk 2077, revealing what he is most excited for regarding the upcoming futuristic RPG.

“One to ten, how excited are you for Cyberpunk?” shroud said, as fans questioned the streamer for his thoughts on the upcoming title. “I’m not like ten out of ten excitement but I’m definitely excited, you know. I am excited to see what their definition of next-gen is, that’s what I’m excited for.”

With the Xbox Series X and PS5 now live across the world, many fans are excited to get their hands on next-gen games from world-leading developers, to match their industry-leading consoles.

Shroud finished: “Like yeah the game’s gonna be great – cool. But I really wanna know are they [CD Projekt] actually gonna revolutionize and truly next-gen. We’ll see – that’s what I wanna know.”

It seems that shroud, like many of us, is simply excited to see how far world-leading dev teams can take gaming on a whole new level of console. From December 10 onwards, we should find out.
