For those players who are starting their Cyberpunk 2077 journeys on the previous console gen and finishing once you can get your hands on a current-gen console, CDPR has detailed how cross saves will work on your platform.

While PC (and Stadia) users don't have to worry about this, those fans playing Cyberpunk on an Xbox One or PlayStation 4 and eventually moving to their current-gen counterparts, the Xbox Series S|X and PlayStation 5, keeping your progress across platforms is going to be important. CD Projekt Red has detailed on their help site exactly how this will work on your respective platform.

For Xbox users it couldn't be simpler. Thanks to Smart Delivery on the new platforms, you can basically just pick up right where you left off without needing to really do anything other than make sure you're connected to the internet to download the cloud save. PlayStation users have it a bit harder, though.

While Cyberpunk 2077 will work on PlayStation 5 at the get go thanks to its backwards compatibility mode, you'll have to upload your saves to your new platform if you started on PlayStation 4 from your PS Plus account. You can also transfer your data to the new system by using a LAN cable or WiFi or use a storage device to transfer from one system to the other. 

Xbox and PlayStation players got a glimpse this month of what the next game from the Witcher studio will look like running on their platforms. Cyberpunk 2077 releases on December 10th for Xbox One, Xbox Series S|X, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Google Stadia and PC. If you're planning on playing it on PC, you can check out the detailed system requirements the studio released last week to make sure your rig is up to snuff.
