In news most of us were *kind of* expecting, CD Projekt RED has delayed the release of the hotly-anticipated Cyberpunk 2077 by more than five months. Citing a requirement to spend more time playtesting and bug-fixing, the studio has moved release of the game to September 17.
As we know with projects of this magnitude, more time is actually a good thing and speaks to a commitment to polish (heh) the release by the devs. Here's what CDPR had to say on the matter:
Hopefully we'll have more pre-release info for you from an editorial perspective, soon.
I'm not fussed about a delay, ever so slightly increases the chance of me managing to get an upgrade before playing.
I like this delay. it gives me more time to get through ffvii, doom eternal, last of us 2 and hopefully ghosts of tsushima if it releases mid year.
this is a ps5 delay
While I am sure it will be worth it in the end, I am disappointed none the less and would prefer it on the 16th like it should be.
