Cyberpunk 2077 Delayed Again, CDPR Cites Multi-Gen Launch As Reason
Just a few short weeks ago, fans around the world celebrated the fact that Cyberpunk 2077 had gone gold. Typically, this means that no more delays are expected and the launch date is final. Unfortunately, that is just not the case with CD Projekt RED’s upcoming game as it has officially been delayed once again.
CD Projekt RED recently took to Twitter to announce the difficult decision to delay Cyberpunk 2077 again, especially with it being so close to the release date. Instead of arriving on November 19th, the title will now be launching on December 10th. Only a delay of 21 days, but a delay nonetheless, and that’s okay. “Most likely, there are many emotions and questions in your heads, so, first and foremost, please accept our humble apologies,” reads the post.

As it turns out, the delay is caused by having to test and prepare nine versions of Cyberpunk 2077 (PC, PlayStation 4, PS4 Pro, PS5, Stadia, Xbox One/X, and Xbox Series X/S) while working from their homes. “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,” reads the post. “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 devs then go on to note how the delay might make “going gold” seem a bit different than usual. “Passing certification, or ‘going gold’, means the game is ready, can be completed, and has all content in it,” they said. “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.”
Delays can be difficult, but they are necessary to ensure the user experience is up to the quality the devs set. Either way, Cyberpunk 2077 is now set to arrive on December 10th.
