The long wait for Cyberpunk 2077 will finally end in less than two weeks, fingers crossed. With CD Projekt RED ensuring that Cyberpunk will meet its release date this time around, now everyone can really start thinking about preparing for its arrival and starting playing as soon as possible. For many, this means wondering if they will be able to preload the game, and based on an alleged leak, it appears they will.
Years of teasers, reveals, and exhibits have made it clear that CD Projekt RED’s upcoming open-world RPG will be one of the largest and densest yet, packed with nuanced gameplay in one of the world’s most popular video game scenarios. detailed history. Naturally, all that content will require a considerable download, and that could prevent players from immersing themselves in Night City for a few hours on launch day.
But according to the PlayStation Game Size Twitter account, PS4 owners will be able to avoid that scenario, as the game will be available to start preloading on December 8, two full days before launch. It doesn’t say if preload will be available on other platforms, but it seems safe to guess that it will be. Additionally, the account claims that while the game’s file size will be 71.73GB on PS4, the actual download will supposedly require a full 72GB to get the entire game on the console.
Given the scale of what CD Projekt RED has shown so far, many gamers have been pleasantly surprised by Cyberpunk’s rather small file size, but it should be noted that it probably won’t stay that way for long. The PlayStation Game Size post omits any details in the day one patch that will likely debut alongside the game, potentially increasing the file size by 10 or 20GB. Not to mention, the file size for the upcoming next-gen versions of the game will likely take up even more space, with a potential weight of around 100GB or more.

Of course, this is all unverified information at the moment, so it should be taken with a grain of salt until CD Projekt RED says something about it, which, at this rate, could happen any day. Still, anyone planning to download Cyberpunk 2077 next month can consider making sure they have some extra storage space saved, just in case. After waiting all these years for this game to come out, no one wants to be delayed any longer by lack of space.
Cyberpunk 2077 will be available on December 10 for PC, PS4, Stadia, and Xbox One, with the PS5 and Xbox Series X versions launching in 2021.
