Since PS5 will be launching next year, there are some speculations floating around talking about CD Projekt RED’s latest project. Many are asking if this game will be launching together with the next generation of consoles and will it be a PS5 launch game. CFO Piotr Nielubowicz finally explained what the verdict is:

When it comes to next-gen, our game is coming to current-gen consoles, and this is what we have announced. Of course we do have insights into what’s around the corner, what’s happening with PlayStation and Xbox, and we’re watching it closely. One may safely assume that at some point we’re gonna do something with the next-gen, however, we cannot be very specific about what that might be, or when exactly that might be. I will only safely assume that it’s not gonna be around the launch time frame of those consoles. And I think that’s pretty much it.

Fret not, there is still hope for the next generation but it will come later on. CEO Adam Kicinski made an additional comment about the more powerful machines coming next year:

Our games were always kind of ahead of technology, they were always played best on strong PCs. So in many areas we are almost ready for higher specs. From a technical perspective, it seems to be doable.

So in the meantime, the game will launch first on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Google Stadia, and PC. It will be released on April 16, 2020.
