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.
