CD Projekt Red announced today that Cyberpunk 2077 has been delayed by three weeks and will release on December 10.
Studio leadership Adam Badowski and Marcin Iwinski released the statement on social media this morning.
“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 versions of it … while working from home,” the statement said. “Since Cyberpunk 2077 evolved towards almost being a next-gen title somewhere along the way, we need to make sure everything works well and every version runs smoothly. 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.
“Some of you might also be wondering what these words mean in light of us saying we achieved gold master some time ago. Passing certification, or “going gold,’ means the game is ready, can be completed, and has all content in it. But it doesn’t mean we stop working on it and raising the quality bar. On the contrary, this is the time where many improvements are being made which will then be distributed via a Day 0 patch. This is the time period we undercalculated.”
Cyberpunk 2077 will launch on Dec. 10 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X | S, PC, and Stadia.
