Cyberpunk 2077 Delayed to December 2020

If you thought that the Cyberpunk 2077 release date was finally set in stone, think again.

On Tuesday, developer CD Projekt Red surprisingly announced that Cyberpunk 2077 is being delayed once again. The November release date has been changed and the game is now launching 21 days later on December 10, 2020.

The news came via a post from the Cyberpunk 2077 Twitter account, which you can view below. “most likely, there are many emotions and questions in your heads, so, first and foremost, please accept our humble apologies,” reads the post, written by CD Projekt Red developers Adam Badowski and Marcin Iwinski.

The delay is not because Cyberpunk 2077 is incomplete. In fact, the game recently went gold, meaning that it has passed certification and is essentially complete. “The biggest challenge for us right now is shipping the game on current-gen, next-gen, and PC at the same time, which requires us to prepare and test 9 versions of it…while working from home,” explains the developers.

“But it doesn’t mean we stop working on it and raising the quality bar,” the post continues. “On the contrary, this is the time where many improvements are being made which will then be distributed via a Day 0 patch. This is the time period we undercalculated.”

Although news of the delay is the last thing many Cyberpunk 2077 fans wanted to hear, it actually may come as a blessing for some. Delaying the game to December will allow more players to prepare for the game, especially considering the game will now release after Black Friday. It seems unlikely that the game will be delayed any more after this, but one can never be to sure until the game is out. Stay tuned for more Cyberpunk 2077 news and updates.
