Cyberpunk 2077 is finally here. But depending on how fast your internet connection is, it may take you a while to download the game on a PC.
Developer CD Projekt Red says you’ll need 70GB of storage for Cyberpunk 2077. So if you’re on a 25Mbps connection—the approximate median broadband speed in the US—the game could take over 6 hours to download. We crunched the numbers, and here’s how long it could take you depending on your connection.
The bad news is that CD Projekt Red also released a 43GB day-one patch to address bugs in the game. So you might see another download prompt before you can launch Cyberpunk 2077 on your PC, forcing you to wait again.
In total, the 100GB+ download means it’ll probably take you 10 hours to download the game if you’re on a 25Mbps connection. If you’re on a 3Mbps connection—which is what some rural internet users face—then brace yourself for over a three-day wait.
Cyberpunk 2077 is also available for consoles. It appears the initial download for Xbox One and Series X/S versions of the game is at 60GB. However, for the PlayStation 4 and PS5, expect a download that reaches 102GB in size.
In addition, IGN reports that another day-one 28GB patch for consoles is rolling out. So again, don’t be surprised if it’ll takes a while for you to launch the game.
We also suspect the download size will only get bigger in the coming weeks. Unfortunately, Cyberpunk 2077 contains its fair share of bugs, which may drag down the experience. In response, CD Projekt Red is indicating more patches and updates are on the way.
