Cross-Gen Saves Have Never Been So Simple–On Xbox, Anyway
Cyberpunk 2077‘s release date is getting closer as we speak, but that only applies to the PC and current generation of consoles. For those of you holding out for the Xbox Series S|X and PS5 editions: you’re safe, keep on doing what you’re doing. Those of you who are planning to upgrade to next-gen consoles in the middle of a playthrough have some obstacles in your path. But never fear, CD Projekt Red has taken a break from forcing other games to be delayed and talking about nudity toggles to release some helpful information about how cross-gen saves will work for Cyberpunk 2077.
Attention console players!
If you start playing #Cyberpunk2077 on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One, you will be able to continue playing it on a corresponding next-gen console. Here’s how the cross-saves will work:

We’ll start with the easy stuff: Xbox. Upgrading on this version will be incredibly simple on account of Microsoft already being pretty good at cloud services and Smart Delivery. Just make sure you’re connected to the internet and your save data will automatically be uploaded to the cloud. If that’s not enough for some reason, make sure that both consoles are on the same network and use the system network transfer option. Boom. You’re back in Night City, looking (and playing) better than ever.
PlayStation users will have a bit more work ahead of them. There are three different options for you: connect to your PS Plus account and upload your saves to cloud storage, transfer the data over LAN cable or WiFi, or use a compatible storage device to copy and transfer the data to your account on PS5. Okay, that was way more straightforward than we expected. Looks like we were making a mountain out of a molehill. Happy gaming, and don’t be afraid to upgrade!
Cyberpunk 2077 will release on December 10th, 2020, for PC, Xbox One, PS4, and Stadia. It will also be playable on Xbox Series X|S and PS5. A free next-gen upgrade will become available for owners of the Xbox One and PS4 versions respectively at a later date.
