Cyberpunk 2077 has been delayed until September, publisher and developer CD Projekt Red announced today.
Cyberpunk 2077 is now slated to launch on September 17, CD Projekt Red aiming to use the additional five months to add as much polish as possible to its RPG.
Cyberpunk 2077 Delayed
"We are currently at a stage where the game is complete and playable, but there’s still work to be done.", the developer said in a Tweet which you'll find embedded below.
"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."
In closing, the developer promised regular updates leading up to Cyberpunk 2077's new September release date. The RPG isn't the only title delayed to September either, joining Crystal Dynamics' Marvel's Avengers.
CD Projekt Red confirmed back in September that Cyberpunk 2077 multiplayer is in the works. While it wasn't brought up when announcing the delay, chances are it's also been delayed, as in the past the developer has named the single-player portion of the title as its main focus.
