It seemed too good to be true. After a long wait, we would finally be venturing forth into the next (hopefully) amazing game from CD Projekt Red. Alas, friends, it won’t be in April. We’ll have to wait until September 17 to take a trip into Night City.
The developer posted a note on its Twitter account today, and you veterans of the delay wars could probably write one of these in your sleep by now. The post states:
“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 the launch will give us the precious months we need to make the game perfect.”
They go on to say we’ll see some more updates closer to release, but, with all the games releasing, I’m fine with a delay, especially if it makes Cyberpunk 2077 the game we all want it to be. You can read the entire post from the developer’s Twitter below, but I’m glad they are not rushing out a buggy game and patching it on the backend. We all know how that works out with releases from other companies.
