Microsoft recently dropped a new batch of details about the upcoming next-gen Series X console. In that announcement, the company included a particularly interesting tidbit for Cyberpunk 2077 fans.
After getting delayed from April to September, some players have wondered if they should skip the Xbox One version of the RPG and wait for the next-generation version instead. But now we know we don’t need to wait at all: the Xbox One version of Cyberpunk 2077 will automatically upgrade to the Xbox Series X edition when it becomes available.
Here’s the news straight from CD Projekt Red and Microsoft:
Gamers should never be forced to purchase the same game twice or pay for upgrades. Owners of #Cyberpunk2077 for Xbox One will receive the Xbox Series X upgrade for free when available. https://t.co/nfkfFLj85w

Despite stating no one should be required to buy the game twice, there’s no indication at this point if a similar upgrade will be offered for the PS4 version of the game, allowing for a free upgrade to the PS5 version when it releases.
We don’t yet know when the next-gen console versions of CDPR’s RPG will arrive, but you can pick up the current-gen edition of Cyberpunk 2077 on September 17 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
