Cyberpunk 2077 delayed until November reveals CD Projekt

They said it wouldn’t happen again but it has: Cyberpunk 2077 has been delayed for another two months by CD Projekt.

Despite the game having been almost finished for a while now, developer CD Projekt has decided they need more time to complete Cyberpunk 2077 and it won’t now be released until 19 November.

That’s a two month delay on its previous release date, which in turn was delayed from the original plan of 16 April.

The first delay was because of everyone suddenly having to work at home because of the coronavirus, although in both cases the game was content complete and all that’s needed now is some final polishing.

‘At the time same time, we are fully aware that making such a decision costs us your trust and trading trust for additional time is one of the hardest decisions a game developer can make. And despite we think it’s the right decision for the game, we’d still like to apologise for making you wait longer. Our intention is to make Cyberpunk 2077 something that will stay with you for years to come. In the end we hope you understand why we did what we did.’

‘We need to properly go through everything, balance game mechanics and fix a lot of bugs. A huge world means a huge number of things to iron out and we will spend the additional time doing exactly that’, adds the statement.

The next update on the game was due to come from a livestream on 25 June, which was itself delayed from its original date. At the moment it’s still due to go ahead though, so at least you’ll see some more of the game then.

Cyberpunk 2077 will be released on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC, with no sign so far of separate next gen versions.
