Cyberpunk 2077 Delayed to September

Posted by | News, PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One | No Comments

CD Projekt Red posted an update regarding Cyberpunk 2077‘s release date. Bad news! It’s been pushed back from April to September 17.

Co-found Marcin Iwinski and head of studio Adam Badowski posted the following statement:

We are currently at a stage where the game is complete and playable, but there’s still work to be done. Night city is massive – full of stories, content, and places to visit, but due to the sheer scale and complexity of it all, we need more time to finish playtesting, fixing, and polishing. We Want Cyberpunk 2077 to be our crowning achievement for this generation and postponing launch will give us the precious months we need to make the game perfect.

This should come as good news for fans of both Final Fantasy and Cyberpunk, however. The highly anticipated Final Fantasy 7 Remake was also recently delayed from March to April 10.

CD Projekt Red is best known for The Witcher series, especially 2015’s massive RPG, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Cyberpunk 2077 is a similarly large-scale, open world, single player RPG, but trades in swords and magic for cybernetics and cars.

Cyberpunk 2077 is now due out on September 17 for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Google Stadia.
