In mid-October, the Polish studio CD Projekt RED proudly confirmed the release of Cyberpunk 2077 for November 19, after two (big) consecutive postponements, the game being initially expected for the beginning of the year 2020. In the process, the game went “gold”, and the fans could therefore breathe, no longer fearing the slightest postponement.
But all this was before the drama of course. Before the publisher publishes a new tweet yesterday at the end of the afternoon, to announce yet another delay… Indeed, Cyberpunk 2077 will finally not be available on November 19, but on December 10. A 21-day delay, which will allow teams to refine the (too?) Many versions of the game.

Indeed, Cyberpunk 2077 will be playable on Xbox One and Xbox One S / X, not to mention the Xbox Series X and S. In addition, there are the PS4 and PS4 Pro versions, as well as the PS5 version. Finally, let’s not forget about PC gamers and Google Stadia, who will all be enjoying Cyberpunk 2077 when it becomes available.
So many versions that involve many hours of preparation and testing, so that the gaming experience is optimal, regardless of the chosen medium.
“We are fully aware that it may seem impractical to say that just 21 days can make a difference for such a rich and complex game, but it is,” explains CD Projekt RED. The studio confirms having underestimated the time required between the switch to gold and the game’s release, insufficient to develop the now-famous day-one patch.
Those who had already taken a day off on November 19, can therefore see with their hierarchy to shift it to December 10. Unless Cyberpunk 2077 is postponed again by then… Nothing is impossible.
