CD Projekt Red, the developers of the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077, have confirmed some big plans in regards to the Xbox Series X. In a statement on their official Twitter account, they said that any gamer who has purchased Cyberpunk on an Xbox One will receive a FREE upgrade when available. This is the first official confirmation of an updated version of the game coming to the Xbox Series X. It is also a peek into how cross-compatibility will work on Microsoft’s new console. This lays a foundation and a trend for other third-party developers to build from. Cyberpunk was recently delayed until September, but it is unclear on if this upgrade will be available at launch
