Let’s face it, not everyone can buy a new console on Day 1; and sometimes cross-gen games release weeks or even months before their next-gen counterparts. Cyberpunk 2077 will release on PS4, Xbox One, and PC on September 17, but the Xbox Series X port will come out when the console releases this Holiday. So are we supposed to wait until then to play the superior console version?
If you’re an impatient Xbox owner, then you’re in luck, because developer CD Projekt RED has confirmed that if you buy the game on Xbox One or Xbox One X, you will be able to play it on the Series X for no additional cost through the Smart Delivery feature.
Gamers should never be forced to purchase the same game twice or pay for upgrades. Owners of #Cyberpunk2077 for Xbox One will receive the Xbox Series X upgrade for free when available. https://t.co/nfkfFLj85w

Smart Delivery is a feature on the Xbox Series X that ensures “you’re playing the best version of your game for your Xbox.” This has also been confirmed to work with Halo Infinite, so if you want to play it on Xbox One before the Series X comes out, you won’t need to buy it twice.
