Cyberpunk 2077 will only work on computers with DirectX 12 on Windows 7 and 10 systems

CD Projekt RED claims that those using Windows 8 will not be able to play their new job.

The wait for Cyberpunk 2077 begins to get quite long, especially since CD Projekt RED announced its delay. The futuristic RPG has already shown us several times its graphic power, which has evolved a lot since we saw the game for the first time.

For those who are interested in enjoying their graphics on PC, the main manager of this aspect on CD Projekt RED, Marcin Gollent , has spoken with PCGamesHardware about some essential requirements of this platform to be able to run Cyberpunk 2077.

According to Gollent, the game will only support the DirectX 12 API on Windows 7 and Windows 10 systems. “We tested and will continue to test Cyberpunk 2077 on Windows 7 in an attempt to resolve any cases that may arise. Unfortunately, Windows 8 did not receive this variant of DX12 libraries “.

The developer also talked about DirectX 12 Ultimate, a graphical API that seeks to reduce the distance between PC and Xbox Series X. “Regarding DX12 Ultimate, Cyberpunk 2077 will work perfectly well with all DX12-compatible GPUs ,” said Gollent. “What the ‘Ultimate’ feature set does is it allows us to do more if the hardware allows it.”

Cyberpunk 2077 is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and Google Stadia on November 19 . In addition, CD Projekt RED has announced that those who purchase the game for PS4 or Xbox One can upgrade for free to PS5 and Xbox Series X.
