Cyberpunk 2077 Delayed To September

You know how I said on Tuesday that it was delay season? The much-anticipated sci-fi role-playing game Cyberpunk 2077 is next on the list—now it’s coming in September instead of April. Sorry, sorry. You must have known this was coming.

This is, of course, the next game from the makers of the phenomenal The Witcher 3. From what we’ve seen, it looks great.

    Yes we all knew this was coming. People will just wait 6 weeks now and get it on next gen

      It'll be backwards compatible anyway so probably just pop the disc in and go from there

        Disc? Hello, 2010 calling.

          Digital? Hello, NBN FTN calling.

            Retail is still likely to do better deals on the big console games (unless it's Xbox first party or Xbox indies, in which case Game Pass is the way to go).

    Normally I don't mind delays.... but man, ouch. :(

    Ahh, i'd hate to be the bean counters at whoever is developing that Avengers game, they delayed it to September so to not clash with Cyberpunk.

      CDPR are playing 4D chess against every other developer. Cyberpunk doesn't even exist.

        More like Square screwed them over by moving FF7:R release to 6 days before Cyberpunk. Why would any game dev want to compete with that?

    More time to save up for a new PC, win win

      I plan on updating my 8 year old CPU/Mobo soon; going to stick with my GTX 1070 at least until the next round of GPUs are available... I don't think they'll be out by then unfortunately. :(`

    Absolutely going to hold off for next gen now. I know it's backward compatible but might as well wait and have the best experience possible.

    I actually wouldn't be surprised to see news in a few months about this being a timed exclusive for either the Series X or PS5.

      I don't think it's going to be exclusive to anything, but I'm sure they've got next gen in mind with the delay.

        Yeah definitely not exclusive, but I could see Microsoft throwing a bunch of cash at CDPR to get it a couple of weeks early - exclusive to Series X.

    Cyberpunk 2077 was clearly delayed to enable them to add and animate more female player options.

    I understand the ps5 will probably play this being bc. But wouldn’t one wait for a next gen update/release before buying this now?

      The PS5 hardware isn't that different from PS4 which is why BC will allegedly be simple. All they'd need to do is enable ray tracing and a few other graphical tricks for PS5 rather than wholesale build the game for the platform. Same goes for series X which is a beefed up bone. Consoles are kind of like fixed component PCs now so you'd expect that CDPR would be able to take advantage of the better hardware the same way developers do now with pro and one x.

      Thankfully it isn't a situation like the cell processor for PS3.

    Most major releases end up delayed. I just never pay attention to their initial release dates that way delays never bother me.
