Cyberpunk 2077 is probably the most anticipated game of the year and rightfully so. However, things haven’t exactly been moving smoothly for it. After suffering delays, it came down to the point where CD Projekt RED had to announce that all employees working on the game had to crunch and put in the hours to polish the product by fixing its existing bugs and glitches before the release date on November 19.
To me, the fact that the crunch was mandatory was entirely unfair, but that’s the reality of the kind of world we are living in currently. On the bright side, at least it would be the last push to towards releasing Cyberpunk 2077 or so we had thought.
Third time’s hopefully the charm for Cyberpunk 2077.
If you’re one of those people who had initially planned to tackle Cyberpunk 2077 by freeing up the entire week during the launch period, then I’m sorry to say that you’re going to have to cancel those. The game has officially gotten delayed by twenty-one days and has moved on to the next month.
The information came about from a post from the game’s official Twitter account earlier today, that stated that the new release date was to be December 10. The post goes on to explain that despite the game achieving Gold Master, meaning that it was already completed and was ready for distribution, there are improvements to be made to increase the quality of Cyberpunk 2077 through patches.
As much as I as appreciate the developers for wanting to give us the best version of the game, I can’t help but feel torn about this. Part of me is glad that the level of work going into making the game is remarkable. However, another part of me is concerned that all of these delays are just continuously raising the bar of expectations for gamers. And if those expectations are not, it’s going to be really disappointing.
