Cyberpunk 2077 is one of the most anticipated titles of the year, as the promising title is developed by CD Projekt, the brilliant studio behind the Witcher video games trilogy, with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt being one of the most popular games of the past decade.
CD Projekt teased Cyberpunk 2077 back in 2012, capturing the attention of millions of gamers from all over the world. However, the need to offer a definitive ending to the Witcher trilogy meant that the development of Cyberpunk 2077 was sidetracked.
Changing in time
While the title was initially developed for the Xbox One, PS5, and PC, CD Projekt decided to also develop native versions for the next generation of consoles, and the need to work on several versions of the game at the same times has been cited by some sources as the primary reason for continuous delays.
Many people believed that the game would be released on November 19 since the studio announced that the game reached gold status. In the world of video games, a title that has reached gold status is ready to be played and can be finished without problems.
CD Projekt has released an official announcement and apology, which also mentions details about the situation and the details behind the delay. The announcement confirms the fact that the game has reached the gold status but mentions that there are additional changes that can be made to improve the gameplay experience.
Some have criticized the decision, arguing that the delay is too short of making a major difference in the case of a title with such a massive scope, but the studio argues that there are many changes that can be made and delivered to players with the help of a Day O patch.
Some people were angered by the announcements as the studio stated that death threats had been received.
