Cyberpunk 2077 Once Again Delayed, New Release Date Set for December
“The biggest challenge for us right now is shipping the game on current-gen, next-gen, and PC at the same time, which requires us to prepare and test 9 version of it,” CD Projekt co-founders Adam Badowski and Marcin Iwinski said in the statement, adding that they are 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.”
This is the third delay for the highly-anticipated game, which was originally set to be released on April 16, 2020, before being delayed to September 17 and now December 10.
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 on December 10. Launch platforms also include Xbox One X, Xbox Series S/X, PS4 Pro, PlayStation 5, and Stadia. 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.
