Cyberpunk 2077 will be released in a few months, but ahead of its release in mid-November, CD Projekt Red developers announced the system requirements needed to run the PC version of the game, and surprisingly, you don’t need to upgrade your computer to play the game.
The recommended game specifications are not too heavy, only require an Intel Core i7-4790 or AMD Ryzen 3 3200G, and an Nvidia GTX 1060 or AMD Radeon R9 Fury graphics card. So, if you haven’t upgraded your rig in the slightest, chances are that you can still run games at 1080p. However, if you want to run games at 1440p or 4K resolutions or take advantage of the game’s technical features like ray tracking, you’ll need to upgrade to an RTX 20-series or RTX 30-series GPU.
Cyberpunk 2077 will be released on November 19, 2020 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. If you buy it on a console and plan to upgrade in the same console family, CD Projekt Red confirms that PS5 and Xbox Series X / S owners will also be able to play Cyberpunk 2077 at launch. The developer also promises free next-generation upgrades at a later date.
