Yet again, Cyberpunk 2077 has been delayed. Despite assuring their fanbase that the game would not be delayed further than September, here we are. Cyberpunk 2077 is going to be released in November, as its developers, CD Projekt Red believe that the game needs two more months to be properly polished. The fact that this much-expected neon blockbuster will take more before it is published a disappointment to all fans, especially to those of us that were waiting to see Keanu Reeves. Well, if that is the way things go, the only thing that is left to do is to wait until November 19.
Marcin Iwinski, the co-founder of CD Projekt Red, and Adam Badowski, its studio head, just announced this a bit earlier via Twitter, adding two more long and difficult months before the game is released. This announcement is definitely not the first of this kind. Originally, Cyberpunk 2077 was scheduled to be released in April. The April launch was called off in favor of a delayed September launch. The gaming industry than tried to come to terms and battle the COVID-19 pandemic, but the developers at CD Projekt Red remained surprisingly steadfast, reassuring all of their fans that Cyberpunk is going to be made available in April, which, of course, did not happen in the end.
In a letter towards their fans, the developers explained that there is no shortage of motivation and the team possesses all the necessary tools to facilitate work remotely. They explained that they have been working according to the rules of social distancing for three weeks and their results seem to indicate that there will be no major disruption in their work, as they carry out all of their operations. CD Projekt Red’s plans were not changed at the time, as the company rushed towards their September release.
