CD Projekt Red has announced yet another delay for their upcoming game, Cyberpunk 2077.
The developer made the announcement in a tweet on the game’s Twitter account. The game was most recently set for a November 19th release date.
This most recent delay was caused by the challenges of bringing the game to 9 platforms including Xbox One, Xbox One X, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series X, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4 Pro, PlayStation 5, PC and Stadia.
“We’re 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,” writes CD Projekt Red co-founders Adam Badowski and Marcin Iwinski in a statement.
The game has “gone gold” which essentially means it’s passed certification and the game is ready and has all the content in it, so then physical copies can be made to ship to retailers.
The 21-day delay is to allow CDPR more time to work on the “Day 0 patch” (sometimes called a Day One patch), which will iron out last-minute bug fixes and changes.
Cyberpunk 2077 will be released on December 10th for Xbox One, PS4, PC and Stadia. The game will be playable on Xbox Series X & Series S and PS5.
Owners of the Xbox One and PS4 versions of the game will be able to get a free upgrade to the next-gen versions.
