In an unexpected surprise, CD PROJEKT RED announced this afternoon that its highly anticipated sci-fi RPG, Cyberpunk 2077, has been pushed back until December 10. This marks the third delay for the title (the game was initially delayed to September 17, and then to November 19).
According to a letter shared by CD PROJEKT RED’s Adam Badowski (head of studio) and Marcin Iwiński (co-founder), the delay has to do with the struggle of releasing Cyberpunk 2077 on multiple platforms. The team has to ensure that the game works beautifully on not only the PC, but two console generations as well.
Badowski and Iwiński pointed out that while the game technically went gold at the beginning of the month, that didn’t mean that CD PROJEKT RED’s work was complete. There are still final touches and other small improvements to be made, which will culminate in a “Day 0” patch.
While stranger things have happened, we’re not expecting Cyberpunk 2077 to be delayed for a fourth time. CD PROJEKT RED will probably try to get the game out before the Christmas holiday at any cost.
