Update: As spotted on Reddit, CD Projekt CEO Adam Kiciński reportedly told investors in a recent conference call that Cyberpunk 2077's PC version is ready.
The game's next-gen version is also running well, with current-gen still requiring some additional work.
Original: Publisher and developer CD Projekt Red has delayed Cyberpunk 2077 once more, this time aiming for a December release date.
The newest Cyberpunk 2077 delay comes during the same month in which the highly anticipated RPG went gold.
The biggest challenge for us right now is shipping the game on current-gen, next-gen, and PC at the same time, which requires us to prepare and test 9 versions of it [...] while working from home." reads a joint statement from CD Projekt Red's Adam Badowski and Marcin Iwiński.
Cyberpunk 2077 Delayed Yet Again Despite Going Gold
"Since Cyberpunk 2077 evolved towards almost being a next-gen title somewhere along the way, we need to make sure everything works well and every version runs smoothly. We're aware it might seem unrealistic when someone says that 21 days can make any difference in such a massive and complex game, but they really do."
The statement also clarifies how the new delay fits with the earlier announcement that Cyberpunk 2077 had gone gold.
"Passing certification, or 'going gold', means the game is ready, can be completed, and has all content in it. But it doesn't mean we stop working on it and raising the quality bar. On the contrary, this is the time where many improvements are being made which will then be distributed via a Day 0 patch. This is the time period we undercalculated."
Cyberpunk 2077's new release date is slated for December 10. An earlier report indicated that developers would have to crunch during the final weeks before the RPG's release in order to fix bugs and remaining issues.
