CD Projekt Red leaves last-gen consoles behind with Cyberpunk 2077's first expansion


CD Projekt Red has announced that it’ll soon be ending PlayStation 4 and Xbox One support for Cyberpunk 2077. The game’s newly released 1.6 update will be the final one for the old console generation, and you can read its detailed fixes here

Cyberpunk 2077’s launch wasn’t the smoothest, but on last-gen consoles in particular, players such as myself suffered multiple crashes and bugs. CDPR has since been improving stability and performance across all versions of the game, and released a true “next-gen” version earlier this year. 

That said, last-gen owners who own a physical version of Cyberpunk should hold onto the disc for when they upgrade to the current generation of consoles. Digital version owners will simply need to select which version to download. 

The patch comes alongside the reveal of Cyberpunk’s upcoming story expansion, Phantom Liberty. The trailer shows V (the game’s protagonist) swearing an oath to join a group called the New United States of America. It also confirms the return of Keanu Reeves as Johnny Silverhand. 

Phantom Liberty will release in 2023 specifically for PlayStation 5, PC, and Xbox Series X|S. But those who bought a special Xbox One X console prior to the game’s release were promised the first expansion upon its release. It’s unclear how those buyers will be affected by CDPR leaving the last generation behind. 

Finally, CDPR announced that mod tools are now available to Cyberpunk 2077. The REDmod will let players create their own animations, scripts, and more in the game, and will be updated alongside the game to keep it compatible. Give it a few days, and like with Marvel’s Spider-Mansomeone will have replaced V with Kermit the Frog.
