In development for nearly a decade, Cyberpunk 2077 is one of the most anticipated games from acclaimed developer CD Projekt Red. The game has been in development for 7 years and is currently available for the PC, PS4, PS4 Pro, Xbox One, Xbox One X, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X, PS5 and Google Stadia. The game which was set to release in April 2020 was delayed multiple times and finally launched on December 10.

According to Digital Foundry, the game runs between 720p and 900p on the PS4 and in busy sequences like driving, the game even drops to the low 20’s in terms of frame rates giving a lacklustre gaming experience. Not to mention the fact that the game is riddled with bugs. You can check out Digital Foundry’s detailed analysis below. 

Digital Foundry also played the game on the next-gen consoles – the Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X and the PS5. the consultation out here is that the game has the same resolution as the PS4 Pro on the PS5 which is a tad over 1080p and runs at a smooth 60 fps albeit with some dips in driving and heavy sequences. 

We at digit are playing the game on the PS5 and confirm that the game has a smooth framerate but is littered with bugs. In fact, we encountered a bug in act 1 that prevent us from progressing and had to start a fresh new game. 

Coming back to Digital Foundry, they say that the game has a performance mode and a resolution mode on the Xbox Series X which gives you either 60 FPS or higher resolution at a locked 30FPS. The game in its current avatar looks best on PC with features like ray-tracing proving that this is truly a next-gen title that needs a little more work. Even on the PS5, when installed on the external SSD, the game takes 15 seconds to load from a cold boot and upon death, reloads in a matter of 15 seconds.
