Earlier today, we reported on some specs and features that were revealed for the Xbox Series X, including the ability to have the best version of the game, no matter what platform you play it on.
Well, shortly after the announcements from Microsoft, the official Cyberpunk 2077 Twitter account responded just about the only way we know they would, saying we should never have to buy a game twice:
Gamers should never be forced to purchase the same game twice or pay for upgrades. Owners of #Cyberpunk2077 for Xbox One will receive the Xbox Series X upgrade for free when available. https://t.co/nfkfFLj85w

This is a complete 180 on what most of the industry has done for the last decade, with remasters essentially selling the same game to us multiple times, just with a fresher coat of paint. That said, times are changing, and with consoles essentially staying on the same architecture as PC and current gen, it makes sense that something like this would be the future.
Still, with CD Projekt RED pointing out that you’ll be getting the right version, no matter platform you’re on, only cements them as some of the best when it comes to looking out for their fans.
