If there’s one thing that CD Projekt RED is good at it’s making enormous games. Cyberpunk 2077 is no exception, as the company just announced today that the Cyberpunk 2077 memory space will take up to 80 gigabytes on the Playstation 4. So if you want to play it, you may have to clear something out.
Even though Cyberpunk 2077 will take place in one city, that still means that there are a large number of buildings, NPCs, quests, vehicles, and other memory-consuming qualities that will have to be rendered and kept track of by the console, hence the large memory requirement.
Alongside the large amount of memory space required, there’s good news. If you’re one of the people that owns an Xbox One X, you’ll be able to play the game in glorious 4K resolution, enabling you to get the best look at the future and all of its wonders (and horrors) possible.
The amount of Cyberpunk 2077 memory space required is actually a great deal more than CD Projekt RED’s last game, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. That game, with all of its DLC and patches installed, only takes up 49.1 gigs on the PC, meaning that Cyberpunk 2077’s memory space is over 30 gigs more.
Considering the huge amount of content that was already in the Witcher 3, one has to wonder exactly how much content there will be in Night City for players to explore. But that’ll have to wait until April when the game actually releases.
While Cyberpunk 2077 did get a big presentation at E3 this year, including the reveal that Keanu Reeves will be playing a major character, we still don’t know what the general story in the game is going to be.
So you had best clear out the 80 gigs of Cyberpunk 2077 memory space you’ll need to fit the game into your Playstation 4 before April 16 of 2020, when the game releases on the Playstation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
