At this rate, it's going to be year 2077 before the game comes out.
It looks like fans who were eagerly awaiting the arrival of the dystopian role-playing game will have to wait a little longer. Cyberpunk 2077, which has been in development since 2013, was initially planned to be released earlier this year in April, but was pushed back to 17 September, citing further playtesting and polishing as reasons for the delay.
Now, despite earlier assurances that the September release date will remain despite COVID-19 setbacks, CD Projekt Red has announced that the launch will be further postponed after all, with the new launch date set on 19 November 2020.
The studio reassured consumers that development of the game is indeed complete content and gameplay-wise, but requires further balancing and bug fixing before they are willing to push it out.
According to The Verge, the mutiplayer component which was supposed to be released after the game's initial April launch date will now be pushed back to 'after 2021' instead.
CD Projekt Red have revealed that game in its current state has already been released to journalists, whose previews will be aired after the Night City Wire announcement stream on 25 June, so stay tuned if you're hungry for a few crumbs from the elusive game's developers.
