CD Projekt Red’s lead programmer Filip Piertsinski warned players that Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty is a heavy load on the PC processor, so everyone should check the cooling system.

“Before release CP2077 2.0 and PL please check conditions of your cooling systems in PC. We use all what you have, so workload on CPU 90% on 8 core is expected. To save your time please run Cinebench or similar and check stability of your systems,” wrote the programmer.

After a rather violent reaction to this tweet, Philippe Pertsinsky wrote a clarification and provided a list of system requirements for the game.

Check your PC cooling system before Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty. It’s going to be hot!

“Follow-up to my previous tweet. My intention was to highlight the need to maintain your cooling systems and check them regularly. Neither Cyberpunk 2077 after 2.0 nor Phantom Liberty will melt your PCs. Game will perform well on recommended hardware.”

As a reminder, the big story expa Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty is coming to Windows PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S on September 26, 2023 and immediately in Ukrainian language .
