CD Projekt Red has just held its third-quarter earnings call for 2020, during which its president and joint CEO Adam Kiciński fielded various questions, many of which were about the upcoming title Cyberpunk 2077. One of them may also have been on the minds of those who still own "non-Pro" PlayStation 4 or Xbox consoles.

Adam Kiciński and chief financial officer Piotr Nielubowicz represented CD Projekt Red at an investor's conference concerning this company's financial results for the third quarter of 2020 (3Q2020). According to a transcript of the same posted on SeekingAlpha, they reported figures such as a year-on-year growth of 13% in total revenues, as well as nearly 33% in terns of sales and 57% in net profits. However, many of the attending investors' questions (of course) concerned the repeatedly delayed, yet hotly-anticipated, title Cyberpunk 2077.

Kiciński confirmed that this game will be compatible with the Stadia, PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 platforms on its launch, although it will also "run great" on the Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5 from launch. This inevitably led to questions about uptake of the game on all possible versions of the last-gen consoles mentioned.

The joint CEO responded by noting that its performance would naturally be reduced "than on pros, but surprisingly good" for the scale of the game (Cyberpunk 2077 is currently hyped as a particularly intensive open-worlder) in question. In summary, Kiciński projects that the game's quality will be "a bit lower, but very good" on the vanilla PS4 or Xbox One/One S.

The executives also noted that 2077 "will hit stores around the world in 15 days", as of this November 25, 2020 results call (so about 13 days from now). It is also touted to exert reasonable demands on older PCs, although its behavior on Stadia can't be spoken to as yet.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
