Cyberpunk 2077 is not really released for PS5, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S yet. Yes, you can play an optimized version of the game on the next-gen consoles, but the true updated next-gen version is still coming. We got news on the release date and what you can expect from the game on PS5 and Xbox Series X.

So first things, first, let's clear an important question:

Do I need to buy Cyberpunk 2077 again for PS5, if I already bought it for PS4?

No. If you already bought the game for last-gen, you get a free next gen upgrade. This goes for both the Xbox and the PlayStation. More precisely, here is what CDPR said about this on Twitter:

So CDPR publically released a roadmap that includes all the patches they promise to make the game work on the last-gen systems. Luckily for all you fancy next-gen system owners, this roadmap has the answer you're looking for: The Cyberpunk 2077 Next Gen Update for PS5 & Xbox Series will release in the second half of 2021.

But, consider this: On this roadmap, patch 1.2 is about halfway through. Cyberpunk 2077 patch 1.2 is actually releasing in February 2021 – which is definitely not the halfway point of the year. Yup, definitely a 'what the hell' moment. So take the accuracy of the time-measurements with about 10 pinches of salt. Quite possibly whatever that marker means on the timeline could be October. It could be June... nobody knows.
