Cyberpunk 2077 Won’t Exactly Be 100-Percent At Launch

The game will certainly be playable, but certain things will have to be added after launch

January 2020 broke us off with the horrible news that Cyberpunk 2077 had been delayed until September and that Multiplayer would be at least a year out after that. Then COVID-19 happened and games like Wasteland 3, Dying Light 2, and The Last of Us 2 quickly got filed into the delayed folder. It seemed that, as unfortunate as things were, that Cyberpunk 2077 would, in fact, be delayed again, but that’s actually not the case at all as CD Projekt Red’s team has managed to pull things together despite a lot of working from home. That does, however, mean that some concessions have to be made, and one of those is that Cyberpunk 2077 won’t exactly be 100-percent complete at launch.

That doesn’t mean that the game isn’t playable, though, and chances are, you won’t even notice that there’s something missing from the game thanks to a Day One patch that CDPR is planning to implement. This story comes way of CDPR’s SVP of Business Development, Michal Nowakowski, during the same investors call that confirmed Cyberpunk 2077 will have plenty of DLC.

“There are some difficulties with the localization process, specifically with recording some of the actors. Most of the studios are closed down right now, at least for the time being. However, we have managed to record the vast majority of the voice-overs, but there are always some last pick-up sessions, and we’re not very worried about that because that’s something we can record even later and add in the form of a digital patch.”

Nowakowski went on to say that once we buy the game in September – yes; it’s still scheduled for launch on September 17th – that we’ll just download a small patch that will add the missing recordings. And, as for the release date, there are no plans from CDPR to change the date as the game has already been submitted for ratings globally.

“We’re definitely not planning to move our dates because someone else is going to land in the window.”

 We don’t know about you, but the idea of downloading a patch for audio is a hell of a lot better than having to wait even long to play Cyberpunk 2077 – it’s been a long time coming, that’s for sure.
