CD Projekt Red has announced that fans will have to wait a bit longer to play Cyberpunk 2077. It has been delayed until November 19. It was originally going to release in September.

On Twitter today, CD Projekt Red apologised for the delay and explained the situation that led to Cyberpunk 2077’s release date being pushed back nearly two months.

The studio said in a tweet announcing the delay that all the content in the game is finished. However, because the game is so large and complex, CD Projekt Red wanted more time to “iron out” bugs and make sure all parts of the game are balanced and working properly.

This isn’t the first time Cybperunk 2077 has been delayed. Originally it was planned to release in April of this year, but in January was delayed until September. And now it has been delayed again. Games are hard to make, folks.

Cyberpunk 2077 has had a long development cycle, with the game first being announced back in 2012.

  • Damn that sucks not a hell of a lot coming out between now and it’s first delayed release date I’m interested in.

    It’s going to be a dry 5 months.

  • As much as I have huge respect for the folks over at CDProject, I’m starting to think they need to stop handing out dates.

    Missing deadlines is bad for business. You erode people’s confidence. There’s already a number of people cancelling their pre-orders.

    “When it’s done” is fair enough. Stop hyping the market and focus on locking down an *actual* release date.

    Personally, I fell in love with this game from the moment I set eyes on it’s very first trailer in 2013… 8 years ago… 8 years.

    • Still hasn’t ticked up to Duke Nukem forever or FF15 levels of dev yet.
      And Star Citizen is still in development despite having a trailer and everything in the same time frame too. At least Cyber Punk may actually release this year. Still waiting on anything other than an alpha from CIG.

    • I am not sure if you are up on current affairs, there was this little thing that happened, that is STILL happening. It kinda turned the world upside down and change how a lot of companies had to work.

      And you are worried that a first world problem some how will greatly affect how this company is seen? Please.

      At this stage I am surprised not more this are being delayed, hell at stage if we get nextgen this year it will be a surprised.

      But the idea that CDPR will have lost any form of street cred because of this decision is laughable.

      • That’s a bit much.
        You might not like it or agree with it and sometimes the reasoning isn’t even fair but this kind of thing can and does have an effect on consumer and investor confidence.

        Personally, I’m not angry at them but the delays are making me more and more likely to hold off on the current gen release and see what they have planned for the next instead.

    • Well, to be fair, there is a global pandemic going on right now that would have no doubt contributed to the latest delay.

  • Cant say I’m not disappointed …. but still considering how much i loved Witcher series … im willing to give it a chance, not cancelling my pre-order … just going to be moving my work-leave to a new date is all (for the 3rd time this year lol)

  • It is what it is. I wasn’t going to play it until nextgen anyways. They still have my faith. It can’t have been easy to cope with the level of teamwork needed during these last troublesome months. I do wonder if the push has something to do with that as well.

  • I actually had a month off at the same time in September (was a happy co-incidence) so I’m disappointed, but I’ll live.

  • meh, Witcher 3 was delayed at least twice that i can remember and so was witcher 2. Hell i remember when blizzard had to delay TBC because they wanted more testing done. More publishers should delay their games in order to bugfix

  • Its being delayed for next-gen GPU’s and consoles it seems. This game is meant to have RTX out of box and possibly they want to coincide with the NVIDIA 30 series cards or soon after.

    This might result in some copies of the game coming with specific nvidia cards down the line? that be nice.

    I really want AMD to succeed with their new cards but I have a sinking feeling I’ll be buying a 3080TI or 3090 in the end anyway. I’ve been playing at 4k for a long while now and AMD has continuously let me down when it comes to capable 4k gaming cards.
    (the 5700XT is a 144op card, the rad7 was doa due to limited and inflated existence)
