Cyberpunk 2077 Won't be $70 When it Comes to Next-Gen Consoles

Fans have had mixed thoughts about the upcoming next-gen consoles since games like NBA 2K21 and Call of Duty: Black Ops - Cold War have revealed that they will be making next-gen games $70. That's pretty concerning since $60 for a game is already a lot of money and paying $10 more for better graphics is asking a lot from consumers. While CD Projekt Red are far from perfect, the fact that they are making Cyberpunk 2077 on PS5 and Xbox Series X $60 should be commended.

Michal Nowakowski, the VP of business development in CD Projekt Red, says that the game will remain $60 for next-gen consoles and they don't want to change the price last minute for consumers. This is fairly good news for those not getting the PS4 and Xbox One version, though they probably should since these versions are getting a free upgrade for the new consoles.

"As I mentioned when answering the previous question, we already announced – a while ago – preorders for our game in the US going at $59.99 and we're not planning to change that price at the last minute. It's been out in the market and known to consumers for some time. In Europe, the game has been marketed by quite a few retailers for quite a while as well, so, in other words, we're not planning to change where we are at the last minute for the consumers."

If you haven't heard, CD Projekt Red isn't just giving free next-gen upgrades for Cyberpunk 2077 but also for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. The game will get a next-gen upgrade soon, though no release date for this version of The Witcher 3 has been revealed. Still, if you haven't played this game in a while, getting the next-gen version might be the best way to experience this RPG.
