It’s no secret that 2020, in general, has wreaked havoc on just about every industry, including the game industry. With the way things have been going, and despite promises, it should come as no surprise that Cd Projekt Red has been forced to delay Cyberpunk 2077 yet again, this time until December 10th.
“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.”
As for the previous statement that the game had “gone gold,” well that allegedly wasn’t just to hype up the game. According to CPR, the game was ready and had all content in it, but the studio wanted to continue raising the bar.
“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.”

This isn’t the first delay, as I’m sure you already know. The November release date that has now been pushed back, was a pushback date from the launch day in June. And, this delay comes after an announcement that there would be no more delays. The good news is that the game should be downright awesome when it launches, and it looks like it will be next-gen ready when it does. Let’s just hope that this is the last delay, and you might want to say a prayer for those that were holding their breath for the November launch date.
