It is the season of delays now isn’t it. CD Projekt Red is now on the list of developers who have pushed back their games 2020 release date. They took to Twitter today to share with fans that the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 would not be releasing on April 16, 2020 as originally announced. The delay is attributed to needing more time for fixing and polishing during the current play testing phase. They hope to use the next few months to really help bring to life a game worthy of their fans.
I will say it a million times, if a developer needs more time let them take it! I would rather wait a few more months to play a game rather then them rushing to get it out. That can lead to unfinished products and major bugs, and believe me no one wants to have to wait for patches to fix things they could have done during postponement. Not to mention, if the game is as large as they are stating, it will take a lot of time to comb through everything after changes are made.
Cyberpunk 2077 is an upcoming RPG (role playing game) based on Cyberpunk 2020 role playing table top game. It relies heavily on play choice with a neon filled city. CD Projekt Red is known for thinking outside of the box when it comes to player combat as well as their storytelling. Not to mention they have Keanu Reeves as Johnny Silverhand. I know I won’t be the last to say this, but just take your time. We know this game is going to be great and totally worth the wait.
