With the new release date for CD Projekt RED
's highly anticipated Cyberpunk 2077
now set for November 19, 2020. This pushes the release a couple of months from the planned September 17 date. The reasoning? Well, it's simple - with the statement noting, "'Ready when it's done' is not just a phrase we say because it sounds right, it's something we live by".
Here's the full announcement.
As per the announcement, all content is there. The team just needs a bit more time to polish up those neon signs and billboards. "Cyberpunk 2077 is finished both content and gameplay-wise," the statement reads. "But with such an abundance of content and complex systems interweaving with each other, we need to properly go through everything, balance game mechanics and fix a lot of bugs."
And in case the the hype and long wait wasn't enough CD Project RED drops the little nugget that Cyberpunk 2077 is game that it intends to stay with players "for years to come". It also notes that hands-on previews with journalists are also happening right now - so, there's that. Plus, the Night City Wire digital event scheduled for next week.
Also, come November 19 we assume both the PS5 and Xbox Series X will be out too - making Cyberpunk's console launch a little weird.
