It’s still far off, but many are pumped about the release of Microsoft’s Xbox Series X. It’s currently scheduled to release this holiday season, but to hold fans over, Microsoft has shown what the new console will look like and has consistently revealed details on specs.

One of the more important details provided was the fact that users only have to purchase one game for either console. It can then be transferred over for no additional charge. There is just one caveat: Developers have to allow it.

Whether developers are on board with this strategy or not remains to be seen, but at least we know where CD Projekt Red stands on the matter. They confirmed that those who buy Cyberpunk 2077 on the Xbox One when it releases in April won’t have to pay additional charges for the upgraded version on the Xbox Series X. They confirmed this stance via Twitter.

CD Projekt Red has always been a studio loyal to its fans and this latest take shows exactly that. They are just committed to giving fans the best experiences possible, not doing anything it takes to make a profit. That approach has led them to become one of the most beloved and popular developers in the industry right now.

There currently is no projected time frame for when the upgraded Xbox Series X version will be ready, but CD Projekt will keep its fans updated as new developments come to light. In the meantime, fans can still enjoy the Xbox One version.

Cyberpunk 2077 is shaping up to be one of the best RPGs in recent memory. It’s excelling on every important front, from the stellar visuals to the open-ended design of Night City. It’s like the Deus Ex series but with way more character options and more freedom to do as you please.

Even the characters you’ll be interacting with seem dialed in, as is clear with Keanu Reeves’ role as Johnny Silverhand. CD Projekt Red is pulling out all of the stops to take the RPG space in a novel direction, and they deserve a ton of praise for their labored efforts.

If there was one game you had to experience in 2020, it’s Cyberpunk 2077. Even though it has a lot of hype right now, the developer seems fully capable of delivering an amazing finished product. We’re only a couple of months away now. You can just feel the anticipation and excitement.
