On the 18th of June, CD Projekt Red, the creators of the upcoming RPG Cyberpunk 2077, announced on their Twitter that they’ve decided to push back the release date of the game from September 17 to November 19.
In a statement posted to Twitter, the developer explained that although it is complete in terms of content and gameplay, the game still has some bugs that need to be fixed and some mechanics balanced hence the push back.
“Those of you who are familiar with the way we make games know that we won’t ship something which is not ready,” CDPR wrote. “‘Ready when it’s done’ is not just a phrase we say because it sounds right, it’s something we live by even when we know we’ll take the heat for it.
“At the time we are writing these words, Cyberpunk 2077 is finished both content and gameplay-wise,” CDPR continued. “The quests, the cutscenes, the skills, and items; all the adventures Night City has to offer–it’s all there. But with such an abundance of content and complex systems interweaving with each other, we need to properly go through everything, balance game mechanics, and fix a lot of bugs. A huge world means a huge number of things to iron out and we will spend the additional time doing exactly that.”
For all the Cyberpunk fans out there, it might be a bummer for now but look on the bright side, they plan on releasing a better game.
