Cyberpunk 2077 Won’t Have a Massive File Size
With the release of Cyberpunk 2077 drawing near, CD Projekt RED discusses the game’s file size and how it won’t take a ton of hard drive space.
Console fans running out of hard drive space can breathe a sigh of relief when finally installing Cyberpunk 2077. Though the game will be massive in scale, Global Community Lead Marcin Momot promises the game’s installation wont take up an absurd 200 GB of space.
Momot, who was teasing on Twitter that more info on Cyberpunk 2077 was coming soon, also indicated that the PC system requirements would also be released in the near future, giving fans enough time to prep as the game’s release draws near this fall.
Last month, the official Cyberpunk 2077 Twitter account held a poll following the game’s latest Night City Wire stream. The poll asked fans what lifepath they would likely choose of the three announced at the event and present in the beginning of the game. While the results were close between Corporate, Street Kid, and Nomad, fans ultimately sided with Street Kid, a lifestyle focused on the street life of Night City deeply involving the criminal underworld.
While the @CyberpunkGame system requirements are not out yet (they are coming soon, though!), I wanted to address this topic from reddit. The game won’t take up 200GB when installed. You can expect the required HDD space to be on par with other modern titles. pic.twitter.com/tRigjPWLfC

Despite the anticipation for the game, some fans are concerned about the direction of Cyberpunk 2077 is taking. Overall the game’s trailers and game play segments shown at the Night City Wire events have focused on chaos and action with very little shown about character growth. To the relief of many, Senior Quest Designer Miles Tost confirmed in an interview with Netrunner 2077 that Cyberpunk 2077 will double down on the RPG side of the game, akin to the developers previous efforts in The Witcher 3, though the game will have plenty of gun play.
Meanwhile the world of Cyberpunk 2077 will have a a very distinguished gun culture within the game akin to American gun culture. The world of Cyberpunk 2077 is filled with gun violence, every street corner presents a new danger to the citizens of Night City and the player as well. As such weapons and mods are a big part of the lifestyle with gun shops and mod shops prevalent.
While the wait for Cyberpunk 2077 is coming to and end, fans of the game have long discussed the creation of an official cookbook based on the world of Cyberpunk 2077. The discussion on Twitter has become so prevalent that CD Projekt RED game developers participated in the discussion of possible recipe’s found in the world of Night City. Nothing has been officially announced regarding the release of such a product, but its not unheard of as games like Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim, Pokemon, and Overwatch have had cookbooks released based on their respective universes, though the banter around a Cyberpunk 2077 cookbook was most likely out of fun than anything official.
Cyberpunk 2077 will launch November 19 on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
