Cyberpunk 2077 was set to release in November 19, but now, CD Projekt RED has announced that the game’s release date is once again be delayed. Cyberpunk 2077’s new release date is December 10, 2020.
The news was announced just recently via a statement by CD Projekt RED’s Andam Badowki and Marcin Iwinski via the Cyberpunk 2077 official Twitter. In their statement, the two said that the game’s new delay is partly due to the fact that the team is working on 9 different versions of the game, including current and next-gen consoles. Plus, the fact that the developers are working from home makes development way more difficult.

This latest delay to Cyberpunk 2077’s release is actually the third delay to the game. Originally, the game was set to launch in April 16, but it was then moved to September. To further polish the game, Cyberpunk 2077’s release was again moved, this time to November. Finally, here we are with yet another delay to Cyberpunk 2077.
While it’s not great news for fans who are eagerly awaiting the game’s launch, at the very least, the delay is only for 21 days. Plus, most gamers will likely agree that a delayed game is better than a game that comes in time but is filled with bugs.
