The highly, and by that, I mean one of the most highly-anticipated games of this year, Cyberpunk 2077, has been delayed once more, with the game now expected to launch in December.
CD Projekt announced yesterday that, due to the problems of building a game simultaneously for PC, current-gen and next-gen consoles, and doing all of it while working from home, it was decided to push the release date all the way to December 10.
“Since Cyberpunk 2077 evolved towards almost being a next-gen title somewhere along the way, we need to make sure everything works well and every version runs smoothly. We’re aware it might seem unrealistic when someone says that 21 days can make any difference in such a massive and complex game, but they really do.”CD Projekt
Not to mention, they also addressed questions as to what happened after the game had gone gold earlier this month.
“Passing certification, or ‘going gold,’ means the game is ready, can be completed, and has all content in it. But it doesn’t mean we stop working on it and raising the quality bar, 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.”CD Projekt
Regardless, we should still be happy that pushback is only for three weeks. Considering how the game has been delayed multiple times now and how CD Projekt is looking to give us the best possible game that they possibly can, I’d say it’s all worth it.
But, even I won’t deny that the wait for this game especially is torturous! Welp, I guess all we can do now is quench our thirst through the trailers provided to us and wait for the day when we finally get to experience Cyberpunk 2077 and all that it has to offer!
About Cyberpunk 2077
Cyberpunk 2077 is an action-adventure RPG developed and published by CD Projekt Red.
The game is set in Night City, a seemingly utopian megalopolis where anything and everything is possible, on the surface, that is. We play as V, a mercenary that is after an implant that serves as the key to immortality. The humongous game world offers a lot of pathways, choices, allies, and enemies. The best part; every single choice and action of yours will forge the story around you!
Cyberpunk 2077 released on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Google Stadia on December 10th, with a PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series S/X release set for 2021!
