Cyberpunk 2077 has been delayed again. CD Projekt Red announced on Twitter that the game will skip its 19 November 2020 release at the current rate pushing the game to 10 December 2020. The developer claims that the extra 21 days of development time is vital to perfecting the game and its experience. In addition, the launch of the PS5 and Xbox Series X has caused hiccups in the development roadmap due to the testing phase on each new console.
CD Projekt Red says that with the current consoles, the next-gen ones and PC, the developer needs to test 9 version of the game for compatibility. They say the launch of the game arriving so close to next-gen has evolved Cyberpunk 2077 into a sort of next-gen game and they need to make sure everything works.
21 days might not seem like a lot but CD Projekt Red says the extra days will make a massive difference. While the game went gold a few weeks back, the day 0 update proved to be more important than ever. In addition, the developer spotted more issues during the tweaks and improvements conducted after the game went gold.

If you ask me, the delay will let gamers chew on some new games in the time being. With the PS5 set to launch on the same day, perhaps this is a godsend for those who were looking to invest time in Demon’s Souls and other titles. “Cyberpunk 2077 delayed” seems to be the news we write about at least once every few months.
