Game developer, CD Projekt Red continue to rack up the GoodGuy™ points with gamers as they have announced that if you purchase their upcoming title, Cyberpunk 2077, on Xbox One, you will get a free upgrade to the next generation Xbox Series X version when it releases.

This comes as a welcome surprise in an industry that seems to pride itself on re-selling the same game to players across console generations. Although credit where credit is due, in this current generation Microsoft have already been allowing gamers to purchase a single copy of a game and then play it across both their Windows 10 and Xbox One platforms.

Alongside this news, Microsoft revealed more details about the features of their upcoming Xbox Series X console, including their new Smart Delivery system.

Smart Delivery: This technology empowers you to buy a game once and know that – whether you are playing it on Xbox One or Xbox Series X – you are getting the right version of that game on whatever Xbox you’re  playing on. We’re making the commitment to use Smart Delivery on all our exclusive Xbox Game Studios titles, including Halo Infinite, ensuring you only have to purchase a title once in order to play the best available version for whichever Xbox console they choose to play on. This technology is available for all developers and publishers, and they can choose to use it for titles that will be release on Xbox One first and come to the Xbox Series X later.

Whenever a new console is launched there is typically a period where the library of titles available is small and this news will certainly make the decision to upgrade to the Xbox Series X console easier for gamers who may typically wait for a new console’s lineup to become more established.
