for the next couple of years at least, every game will be cross-gen and the ps4/xbox1 copy will receive a free (we hope) upgrade patch for next gen as it is now for ps4 pro and xbox 1x since backward compatibility has been confirmed. If not, the well deserved shitstorm will be humongous.But then again pushing the date even more leads to the game being outdated so much faster provided the new consoles will actually be what they are rumored to be i.e. having 8-core 16-thread CPUs and built in raytracing capabilities and also if CDPR isn’t planning to do the Rockstar double-dipping trick (releasing the game first on an older console and then on a new one when it arrives).
Also, with RDR2 coming on PC in 3 weeks, we already know CP2077 will already be graphically outdated at launch, like every other non-sony or non-rockstar game. Or in terms of gunplay and animations. The thing that scares me most now is driving: they never showed driving, in particular in streets with other vehicles (a realistic amount of them, not the 3 cars we saw in 2018). That's weird. We don't want a huge city where the only vehicle moving on the streets is V's bike/car.
