Cyberpunk 2077 Delayed To December After Going Gold

At this point, we’ve been waiting for Cyberpunk 2077 for the better part of a decade. Originally announced way back in 2012, the game has been delayed multiple times by developer CD Projekt Red since then. Since Cyberpunk 2077 was most recently delayed to November 19, it felt like we would finally get the game in our hands, with it recently going gold. Alas, that was just a dream, with Cyberpunk 2077 once again being delayed.

Announced via the game’s official twitter account, it was confirmed that the game has been shifted back by a mere three weeks to December 10. The delay is due entirely to getting the game prepared and tested on nine different platforms, while also working from home. Releasing a game on nearly every platform imaginable is no easy feat and CD Projekt Red have found themselves in need of more time to get the final touches ready.

A delay isn’t inherently a bad thing, with extra time generally meaning the game will be better for it. If you arranged time off work to play the game, you might want to get that changed to December, but with next-gen consoles launching the week before there’s still plenty to do around that time.

After Cyberpunk 2077 was delayed, it will now release on December 10 for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and  Xbox Series X|S.
