The rumors and speculation surrounding Cyberpunk 2077 are true, as the game has been delayed by two months, which pushes the game into the release window of the next-gen consoles. Cyberpunk 2077 is one of the most highly-anticipated games of 2020, but it has faced a number of issues during production.
Cyberpunk 2077 was originally meant to be released in April 2020, but that release date didn’t last long. Cyberpunk 2077 was delayed back in January, being pushed to September 17. This didn’t cause too much of a stir, as it was just one of several high-profile games that were delayed around the same time. The COVID-19 situation led to speculation that the game was going to be delayed again, which would certainly be understandable, considering everything that has happened over the past few months. CD Projekt Red said Cyberpunk 2077 won’t be delayed back in April, but that is no longer the case.
A statement has been made by CD Projekt Red on the official Cyberpunk 2077 Twitter page confirming that the game has been delayed. Cyberpunk 2077 has been pushed back two months, so it will now launch on November 19. CD Projekt Red has confirmed that the game is finished, but it still needs more work in the bug-fixing department in order to ensure that it will launch in a state that it’s happy with.
The delay raises some questions regarding some versions of Cyberpunk 2077 without a set release date, most notably on Google Stadia. It has been confirmed that the Stadia version of Cyberpunk 2077 will launch later than the currently announced versions of the game.
Does the delay mean that Cyberpunk 2077 will also launch on Stadia at the same time as the other systems? Geoff Keighley has also speculated on Twitter that the delay pushes Cyberpunk 2077 into the release window of the next-gen systems.
The PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X are both meant to be released during the 2020 holiday season, so they could also be released around the same time as Cyberpunk 2077. There still hasn’t been a confirmation of a PlayStation 5 version of Cyberpunk 2077, but it’s almost a given at this point, and the game would be an awesome addition to the system’s launch line-up.
So yeah be patient OK?
