Cyberpunk 2077 is in a much better place now than when it first came out in December 2020. This is because of a long road of game-fixing patches, huge updates, and a hit anime series that ties into the game.
Even though work has started on a sequel, there is still a very good reason to visit Night City in the near future because it will be getting bigger.

Phantom Liberty will only be available on PC, Xbox Series X|S, and PS5. In September 2022, CDPR confirmed that the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles from the previous generation were no longer supported.
The studio is now focused on current-gen systems as it changes several Cyberpunk 2077 gameplay elements for Phantom Liberty.
