Cyberpunk 2077 cross-save will let you start playing on a last-gen console and pick up where you left off on the new PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X|S. It works slightly different for each console family, so here's how to get your saves to go cross-generational in Cyberpunk 2077.

If you've had trouble getting your hands on a PS5 or Xbox Series X|S, you can grab a copy of Cyberpunk 2077 for your current-gen console and upgrade down the line.

The process is detailed on CD Projekt RED's support site. Cross-saves only work between consoles of the same family, so you won't be able to move from PS4 to Xbox Series X. You also can't pick up where you left off on PC from console, either.

The saves for Cyberpunk 2077 are cross-compatible between the PS4 and PS5. You can upload your PS4 save to the PS Plus's cloud, or you can transfer the save data with a USB drive to the new console. Playstation saves are tied to a specific PSN, and it tracks this even when you use local connection or USB to transfer data. You'll just have to be logged in under the same PSN that the save data was originally created under.

Microsoft's Smart Delivery makes it easy to keep track of your saves. If you're logged into the same Microsoft account, your data should be saved to the cloud. Alternatively, you can use the Xbox's system network transfer to get your data across.
