The PlayStation Store has confirmed that the “minimum” file size for CD Projekt RED’s Cyberpunk 2077 is nearly as big as Red Dead Redemption 2.
Cyberpunk 2077 is one of the biggest games of the past decade in regard to sheer anticipation and levels of excitement, but the PlayStation Store has now confirmed that it will also be one of the PlayStation 4’s largest games in terms of file size just behind Red Dead Redemption 2.
To celebrate the launch of pre-order sales for Cyberpunk 2077 on the PS4, CD Projekt RED has released a sweet and entirely free theme that players can download now.
And, if you’re planning to pre-order CD Projekt RED’s biggest game to date (and we know you are), you’ll want to know just how much free space you’ll need in your system’s storage.
Cyberpunk 2077 PS4 file size is almost as big as Red Dead Redemption 2
Remember how long it took for Red Dead Redemption 2 to download and install, as well as allow you to enjoy its breathtaking open-world and narrative? Well, when Cyberpunk 2077 is released next year, you’ll definitely feel an awful sense of déjà vu.
Cyberpunk 2077 is now available to download over on the PlayStation Store, and the game’s profile page notes that its file size is 80 GB “minimum.”
Seeing as CD Projekt RED will be improving and fine-tuning Cyberpunk 2077 until the moment it releases, it’s more than likely that its file size will increase and become even bigger than Red Dead Redemption 2‘s 89 GB.
While it’s easy to complain and dread the long downloading times, there’s nothing CD Projekt RED can do about it unless you want them to cut content and jeopardise their vision. No, I didn’t think so.
Cyberpunk 2077 launches for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on April 16. CD Projekt RED has already confirmed that it won’t be an Epic Games Store exclusive, and the Lead Quest Designer might have hinted at the inclusion of New Game Plus.
