A Cyberpunk 2077 developer has responded to concerns that the download size for their upcoming title would be over 200GB.
The CD Projekt Red devs are already starting to build hype for the November 19th release, with plenty of trailers and information shared about the upcoming adventure. While fans have been impressed with what they’ve seen so far, it has become a concern about how much space will be used when the game drops.
During the latest Nvidia showcase, a screen capture of the Cyberpunk 2077 was shared, along with Nvidia’s plans for how their hardware will handle next-gen games that are over 200gb and it led many fans to believe that CD Projekt Red’s title could have a considerable download size.
However, Cyberpunk’s Global Community Lead, Marcin Momot, has addressed these claims on September 2, revealing that it won’t be as big as some fans are expecting.
“I wanted to address this topic from Reddit.” he admitted before revealing that Cyberpunk 2077 will not be over 200GB, “the game won’t take up 200GB when installed.”
While the @CyberpunkGame system requirements are not out yet (they are coming soon, though!), I wanted to address this topic from reddit. The game won't take up 200GB when installed. You can expect the required HDD space to be on par with other modern titles. pic.twitter.com/tRigjPWLfC

He followed up by sharing that those looking to buy Cyberpunk can expect a download size to be in line with the current industry standard, “You can expect the required HDD space to be on par with other modern titles.”
Download size has been a major concern in other titles as well, such as Call of Duty Warzone, which at its peak, was nearly 250GB.
