CD Projekt Red has outlined on its official support site how Cyberpunk 2077 will work cross-saves. Anyone who wants to play Cyberpunk 2077 on PS4 or Xbox One and then switch to PS5 or Xbox Series X can transfer their saved files to the next generation.
Developer CD Projekt Red has now taken the liberty of breaking the process of how exactly this is done.
Players of previous generation consoles can expect to retrieve their save file on a PS5 or Xbox Series X copy of Cyberpunk 2077 and pick up where they left off without the hassle of starting over from scratch .
However, the process of moving your storage will differ depending on whether you’re using a PS5 or an Xbox Series X.
PS4 to PS5 Cyberpunk 2077 cross saves
When you get into Night City action on a PS5, you have a few options to choose from. Players can connect to PlayStation Plus and upload their save files. This may be one of the easier options available. Players can also use an external hard drive to make a copy of their save file that can then be transferred to the PS5 console. And then of course players have the option to transfer data via a wireless network connection or a LAN cable.
Cross-saves from Xbox One to Xbox Series X Cyberpunk 2077
The Xbox cross-save, on the other hand, has a slightly easier, one-track method of moving your save file. Those playing Cyberpunk 2077 on Xbox One can save their file to the cloud and then use the same file on their Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S. Players can also use the System Network Transfer with both consoles connected to the same network. This is all because of Xbox Series X Smart Delivery.
Players can expect to use these methods with the backward-compatible versions of Cyberpunk 2077, but it is not yet known if previous generation consoles will be accessible when the next generation upgrade is released sometime next year. For now, however, players can look forward to relatively easy transfers between consoles.
Until then, here’s everything we know about the Cyberpunk 2077 PS5 and Xbox Series X upgrade.
