CD Projekt Red has stated Cyberpunk 2077 will not require 200GB of hard-drive space after rumours emerged suggesting it would.

Recently, NVIDIA hosted its RTX 3000 GPU event reveal and showcased some of the hardware’s power with a screenshot from the upcoming role-playing game.

The idea was to demonstrate how capably the new line of GPUs can handle next-generation video games.

However, a post then appeared on Reddit that suggested the NVIDIA reveal had placed Cyberpunk 2077 in a category of titles that require 200GB of hard-drive space.

The rumour caused quite the commotion as many were quick to draw comparisons to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare which has a large install size but is comprised of mostly uncompressed audio files.

Following the rumours, CD Projekt Red’s Global Community Lead took to Twitter to downplay them.

“While the Cyberpunk 2077 system requirements are not out yet, I wanted to address this topic from Reddit,” said Marcin Momot.

“The game won’t take up 200GB when installed. You can expect the required HDD space to be on par with other modern titles.”

While it still unknown what the exact system requirements for the game will be, Momot did tease they will be revealed soon.

Cyberpunk 2077 currently has a release date scheduled for November 19, 2020 and will be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

There will also be versions available for the next-generation consoles at some point in the future.
