Owners of Cyberpunk 2077 on Xbox One Will Receive Free Copy for Series X

The arms race between the hotly anticipated Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 is heating up. Gamers everywhere were beginning to wonder which of the titans will reveal their hand first. It’s safe to say that Microsoft is content to take the first swing — hot on the heels of their Series X features reveal, CD Projekt Red has confirmed in a tweet this morning that the Xbox Series X version of the highly anticipated first-person open world shooter Cyberpunk 2077 will be available for free to gamers who have purchased the Xbox One version.

Cyberpunk 2077 and Cross-Generation Support

CD Projekt Red’s use of the word “upgrade” suggests that they have more in mind than a simple port. This revelation comes shortly after the news of France-based developer Ubisoft announcing that a version of the wildly popular Rainbow Six: Siege is already in the works for next-gen consoles, showing that devs are willing to support their games across console generations.


Assuming this is the standard for cross-generation games on Xbox moving forward, this is a potential big win for Microsoft. One of the biggest concerns for any early adopters of a new generation of consoles will be their game libraries. Allowing gamers to migrate entire libraries to what could be the most powerful console of the next generation, straight out of the gate, could do wonders to ease those concerns. Either way, CD Projekt Red‘s offer is tantalizing, and will surely help sway consumers towards purchasing the Xbox One version of the upcoming blockbuster.
