It seems that Cyberpunk 2077 has met a fate similar to many other games this year, as CD Projekt Red has decided to push the release date to September 17th, 2020. The studio took to Twitter to announce and explain its reasoning behind the push for its upcoming sci-fi RPG

“We are currently at a stage where the game is complete and playable, but there’s still work to be done,” wrote the developers. “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 the precious months we need to make the game perfect.” The company then mentions that it will provide “regular updates” up until release.
Cyberpunk 2077 continues the trend of delayed games this year, with both Final Fantasy VII Remake and Marvel’s Avengers moving to April 10th and September 4th respectively. While many fans are likely disappointed, we can all hope that these delays will help raise these titles to their highest potential.
