During a recent interview, Cyberpunk 2077 Dev talked about the potential of current generation consoles by saying that they still have a lot to offer.
The designer of quests for Cyberpunk 2077, Miles Tost had a very detailed talk. He was asked whether the game will end up running better on next-gen consoles or not. That’s when he shared his thoughts about the current gen consoles.
Despite upcoming consoles like PS5 and Xbox Scarlet, Miles Tost said:
Recently released titles have shown us that there’s still a lot of juice left in the current generation and I continue to be amazed by what’s being done.
He further explained current generation consoles by saying:
Looking at the games released at the beginning of this generation and comparing them to some of the absolutely amazing looking recent titles, we can see quite an astonishing difference. Devs are a resourceful bunch — we figure out new and better ways of using and optimizing tools we work with all the time.
Coming from CD Projekt Red, that’s a very good sign and shows us that there’s still a lot to come from current-gen consoles. It’s not surprising that PS4 and Xbox are capable of running beautiful games. PS4 surprised us with the stunning Horizon: Zero Dawn and God Of War. We remember when we got The Last Of Us at the end of the PS3 era and we were totally amazed by what it could still offer. It looks like the same case with current gen consoles hopefully till Cyberpunk 2077 releases. It also means that they are quite contented with current generation hardware and won’t suffer from cross-gen dilemma.
Though, there’s no release date yet for the upcoming sci-fi game by CD Projekt Red. There are rumors that the game will arrive sometime in 2019 but nothing has been officially said.
Developers also talked about the “emergent gameplay” and confirmed that they will not pad out the game to extend play time. Cyberpunk 2077 has a lot to offer and we can’t wait to witness it all when the game arrives.
As for the next-gen consoles, there are a lot of rumors that they will be announced anytime soon. New patents have been registered by Sony which hints at the possible upcoming features of PS5 including backward compatibility and more.
