Cyberpunk 2077, the highly anticipated new role-playing game of the studio behind the Witcher series, has been delayed. The game was previously expected on April 16; Now it won’t launch until September 17, five months later.
“We are currently at a stage where the game is complete and can be played, but there is still work to be done,” said Marcin Iwinski and Adam Badowski, co-founder and head of studio of the developer CD Projekt Red, respectively, in a statement on Twitter. “Night City is huge, full of stories, content and places to visit, but due to the large scale and complexity of everything, we need more time to finish the game tests, fix and polish. We want Cyberpunk 2077 being our greatest achievement for this generation and postponing the launch will give us the precious months we need to make the game perfect. “
The original release date was announced during E3 last year, along with the revelation of actor Keanu Reeves as the iconic Johnny Silverhand, who was a central figure in the original board game. Among the key differences in the demonstration of the game that was shown to the press during the conference were the changes in the combat model, which seemed to have improved a lot compared to the 2018 demonstration.
The delay applies to all versions of the game: Google Stadia, PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One.
