In their latest investor call, CD Projekt Red have talked about Cyberpunk 2077's performance on base PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles. They say the game runs surprisingly well but a bit slower than on PS4 Pro and Xbox One X.

PS4 and Xbox One owners who pre-ordered Cyberpunk 2077 and can't wait to start exploring the Night City will be happy to hear that the game runs surprisingly well on the base consoles, despite its vast open world and next-gen graphics.

CD Projekt Red hosted an investor call yesterday, where they talked about Cyberpunk 2077 and answered to questions from investors. When asked about the PS4 gameplay, which was released recently and how it compares to PS5 and PC, CD Projekt Red replied that PS4 Pro performance is still very good.

The devs used the extra three weeks and managed to optimise the game so it performs great on every platform, accordingly to platform capabilities. 

"I mean, PS5 [performance ] is great. PS4 is still very good. We had those extra three weeks and we achieved a lot by -- within this final stretch. So, we believe that the game is performing great on every platform. Of course, accordingly to platform capabilities, but not every platform should be great," Adam Kicinski, CEO of CD Projekt said.

He added that the performance on base PS4 and Xbox One is a bit lower than on PS4 Pro and Xbox One X but still surprisingly good given the scope of Cyberpunk 2077's world. 

"Of course, a bit lower than on pros, but surprisingly good, I would say for such a huge world. So, bit lower, but very good," Kicinski explained.
