When asked if there's another delay incoming, CD Projekt's Vice President of business development Michal Nowakowski said that the team feels confident but not quite comfortable with the December 10, 2020, release date.

Shortly after they announced another Cyberpunk 2077 delay, this time to December 10, 2020, CD Projekt Red have hosted an investor call where they offered some answers regarding the delay and the reasons for it. 

The Q&A segment , which followed shortly after has a lot of interesting statements from Adam Kicinski, Joint CEO of CD Projekt and Vice President of business development Michal Nowakowski. When asked about the new release date and if the team is confident they can complete the game before December 10, Nowakowski replied:

"We feel firm. As I said, the game is releasable on the 19th and having those 3 more weeks just gives us more chances to fix this and that - so we feel secure," he said. Now, if you're reading this you probably think that this will be the last delay since CD Projekt are more or less sure that the game will be out on December 10. However, the next sentence from Nowakowski about the release date isn't exactly reassuring:

"We feel – maybe not comfortable, but confident," he said. When asked, once again, if the game will definitely release on December 10, Nowakowski replied: "That's more or less what I'm saying, I guess—yes"

You may remember that CD Projekt Red were pretty adamant that Cyberpunk 2077 will release on November 19, 2020, when they announced the second delay. Now, their words are not quite encouraging as some players would like and we would not be surprised if the game gets delayed again, this time to 2021.

However, given that this latest delay was not received well among the community, CD Projekt Red may decide to launch Cyberpunk 2077 regardless of the game's state but that's just speculation and there is no indication they would actually do that.
