Cyberpunk 2077 Optimized for Xbox Series X|S, Appears on Console Store

Cyberpunk 2077 fans with an Xbox Series X | S have some good news ahead of CDProjekt Red’s live stream tomorrow. An updated version of the game – denoted “Optimized for Xbox Series X|S” in settings and menus – recently appeared in the console store.

There is no file size or timeline for when players will be able to update their current install, which is still on patch 1.31. Neither PlayStation nor PC have received similar updates, but unless Xbox releases the optimization news (unlikely), it’s a safe bet that the other two platforms will see similar releases tomorrow. If this was an error on Xbox’s part, it’s no small mistake, but it’s not unwelcome either. Many gamers were waiting for the current version of Cyberpunk to be released to purchase the game rather than playing the latest generation software on newer hardware.

If the current-gen launch happens tomorrow, the timing is remarkable. Horizon: Forbidden West releases this Friday, followed closely by Destiny 2: The Witch Queen and Elden Ring next week. Perhaps Cyberpunk can reframe the narrative amid a busy, high-profile release schedule and steal some more positive headlines.

The official Cyberpunk Twitter account also recently responded to The Verge’s Tom Warren about the news with a tell-all meme.
