Cyberpunk 2077 delayed yet again to December 10th

Cyberpunk 2077 delayed yet again to December 10th

CD Projekt announced today that Cyberpunk 2077 has been delayed yet again and is now due out on December 10th. I really didn't believe this would happen, but in retrospect the fact that they had another episode of the Night City Wire lined up for next month might have been a hint. According to the announcement, the reason for this last minute delay is that the company needs more time to test the game on the wide variety of platforms it's launching on.

Today, we've decided to move the release date of Cyberpunk 2077 by 21 days. The new release date is December 10th. Most likely, there are many emotions and questions in your heads, so, first and foremost, please accept our humble apologies.

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 (Xbox One/X, compatibility on Xbox Series SIX, PS4/Pro, compatibility on PS5, PC, Stadia)... while working from home. 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.

Some of you might also be wondering what these words mean in light of us saying we achieved gold master some time ago. 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.

We feel we have an amazing game on our hands and are willing to make every decision, even the hardest ones, if it ultimately leads to you getting a video game you'll fall in love with.
It's only a three week delay, but still, lol. It would be nice if they made up for this by finally showing us some uncut gameplay footage for the first time since 2018.
