Cyberpunk 2077 fans brace yourselves - CD Projekt Red have decided to push back the launch date once more, this time by 21 days, although the reason is pretty much the same as last time.
This means that Cyberpunk 2077's new launch date is December 10, 2020, which isn't that bad all things considered. That is unless you're one of the fans who timed their vacation to coincide with the previous launch date, in which case you're probably a bit more disappointed.
CDPR explained that Cyberpunk 2077's evolution into a next-gen title has played a considerable role in the latest delay, as they practically need nine test versions of the game optimised for each of the platforms.
"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 a difference in such a massive and complex game, but they really do", they wrote.
Now, Cyberpunk 2077 has gone gold a while ago, which means the game is more or less ready. CDPR stressed that the game can be completed and that all the content is in.
That said, the development is not yet 100 per cent complete, as CDPR are planning for a bunch of improvements that will arrive with the Day 0 patch. It turns out that they undercalculated this part of the process, hence the delay.
While we're not exactly ecstatic over yet another delay of Cyberpunk 2077, we'd still rather have a polished masterpiece than a buggy bundle of potential, especially given the high profile nature of the game. Either way, its' time to add another 21 days to the counter, so hopefully this ends up the last delay.
