In a statement posted on Twitter, CD Projekt Red announced it delayed Cyberpunk 2077 by 21 days. That means the game is now slated to launch December 10.
According to the statement, the biggest challenge at the moment is shipping Cyberpunk 2077 to current- and next-generation consoles, along with PC and Google Stadia. The team is currently preparing and testing nine versions of the game, a process made more complicated by the ongoing pandemic and work-from-home orders.
“We’re aware it might seem unrealistic when someone says that 21 days can make any difference in such a massive and complex game, but they really do,” reads the statement in part.
Addressing Cyberpunk 2077 going gold several weeks ago, CD Projekt Red’s Adam Badowski and Marcin Iwinski said the studio hasn’t stopped work on the game.
“On the contrary, this is the time where many improvements are being made which will then be distributed via a Day 0 patch. This is the time period we undercalculated.”
Cyberpunk 2077 has had a troubled development cycle, seeing how the game was first announced in May 2012. The game’s original April 16, 2020 release date was first delayed to September 17, then November 19, and now December 10.
