The most anticipated game of the year is Cyberpunk 2077. CD Projekt RED delayed the game several times but things are now looking good for a December 10th release. Unfortunately, it seems those who were lucky enough to get their hands on an AMD Radeon RX 6800 series video card will have to wait a bit longer to enjoy the game in its full glory.

Cyberpunk 2077 supports raytracing but at launch this feature will exclusively work on NVIDIA GeForce RTX series GPUs. PC Gamer reports CD Projekt RED is cooperating with AMD to enable it the RDNA2-based GPUs as soon as possible. It's unknown why it's taking longer to enable this Microsoft DXR-based feature for AMD GPUs. It may be a marketing thing. Last week, Godfall got ray tracing support first, with a message that NVIDIA support would follow at a later point.
