Cyberpunk 2077, CR Projekt Red’s upcoming RPG that has so many gamers hyped, has been delayed one more time.
After initial delays back in early 2020, Cyberpunk 2077 is facing further delay with developer CD Projekt Red pushing the now late start date for the title back into November 2020. This is the second push back fro the game’s initial intended launch date of April 2020 to 17 September, where it now sits at 19 November. It’s no surprise that the Polish games studio is not ready to release the title until later this year. The impact of Coronavirus and remote working makes massive endeavours like these much harder to wrangle into a ready state. In an announcement on the Cyberpunk 2077 social media handles, Marcin Iwinski, Co-Founder of CD Projekt Red and Adam Badowski, Head of Studio, advised that the game is largely finished but the game needs time to test and quality asses.
“At the time we are writing these words, Cyberpunk 2077 is finished both content and Gameplay-wise,” confirmed the studio’s statement, “The quests, cutscenes, the skills and items; all the adventures Night City has to offer – it’s all there. But with such an abundance of content and complex systems interweaving with each other, we need to properly go through everything, balance game mechanics and fix a lot of bugs. A huge world means a huge number of things to iron out and we will spend the additional time doing exactly that.”
While the recent delay can be added to the heap of internet incidents tied to Cyberpunk 2077, it is unlikely to really impact sales much. Fans who are eager to get a glimpse of the game can likely get a first impression as CD Projekt Red are passing out builds to press outlet now. You’ll either be able to get their thoughts or catch a glimpse of Cyberpunk’s own Nigth City Wire when it airs on the 25 June.
