Cyberpunk 2077 release date delayed until September 2020
CD PROJEKT RED has announced that their highly-anticipated video game Cyberpunk 2077’s release date has been pushed back to September 17. The game was originally scheduled to hit shelves on April 16.
“We are currently at a stage where the game is complete and playable, but there’s still work to be done. Night City is massive – full of stories, content and places to visit, but due to the sheer scale and complexity of it all, we need more time to finish playtesting, fixing and polishing. We want Cyberpunk 2077 to be our crowning achievement for this generation and postponing launch will give us the precious months we need to make the game perfect. Expect more regular updates on progress as we get closer to the new release date. We’re really looking forward to seeing you in Night City, thank you for your ongoing support!” Co-founder Marcin Iwiński and Head of Studio Adam Badowski said in a statement.
Cyberpunk 2077 is set in the fictional world of Night City, California in the year 2077. The world is broken while MegaCorps manage every aspect of life from the top floors of their sky-scraping fortresses. The streets are run by drug-pushing gangs, tech hustlers, and illegal braindance slingers. The in-between is where decadence, sex, and pop culture mix with violent crime, extreme poverty, and the unattainable promise of the American Dream.
The open-world RPG, featuring the one and only Keanu Reeves, will include multiplayer action sometime after the game’s launch for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. You can pre-order the game here! The game’s Collector’s Edition is also available for pre-order, which includes a 25 cm / 10 inch statue depicting the game’s protagonist — V — in action, a steelbook case, a hardcover art book, and more. The Collector’s Edition comes in an impressive box made to look like one of the megabuildings towering over Night City.
