Do you play Cyberpunk 2077 on your Windows 7 PC? You will soon have to abandon the game or the old operating system.
Cyberpunk 2077 WILL NOT WORK ON Windows 7
No more than two days ago, CD Projekt RED released patch 1.5 for Cyberpunk 2077. Almost all attention has focused on next-generation consoles, but it’s worth remembering that the patch also applies to PCs. Much has been said and written about the most important changes (corrections and novelties), but it is worth focusing on something else.
It turns out that Cyberpunk 2077 will stop liking Windows 7 in the near future, and specifically will not work on computers running under its control. However, players with such units at home do not have to panic, because there is some time for possible corrections.
“Due to technical limitations of non-native DirectX12 in Windows 7 and termination or limitation of graphics drivers availability, updates released after June 15, 2022 will not support Windows 7. If the game is updated after this date, it may stop working on the operating system Windows 7. “
Cyberpunk 2077 on NVIDIA 700 series graphics? This is a bad idea
The Windows 7 issue wasn’t all in the context of Cyberpunk 2077’s hardware requirements. The minimum hardware configuration in the NVIDIA graphics cards tab has also been tweaked. Currently, the manufacturer recommends the GeForce GTX 970 model (and all the better, of course). The Projekt RED CD will no longer test on NVIDIA 700 series cards. This is due to the end of driver support.
“The game won’t necessarily stop working on previous cards, but we’re not testing it with NVIDIA 700 series cards anymore.”
Does any of the above information apply to you? Not so long ago, we mentioned statistics showing that Windows 7 is theoretically dead, but still alive. It still runs about 13% of computers (of those running Windows).
