Yesterday the internet lost its mind after a Twitter user who people claimed was a reliable source for gaming leaks, hinted that Cyberpunk 2077 would not release in 2020. In addition, CD Projekt Red, for some reason, replaced the game’s social media headers with new ones. However, the new images did not have the game’s release date on them anymore. This further sparked the delay rumours.
Thankfully, CD Projekt Red quickly shot them all down telling IGN that the game is still on track for its 10 December 2020 release date. According to the spokesperson, the developer just took their time updating the game’s social media headers from “pre-order” to 10 December. It was just bad timing that this “reliable source” hinted at a delay.
“As a rule, we don’t comment on rumors or speculation. But I will confirm we were just taking time to update all of our assets to reflect the new launch date of December 10th.”
Don’t get your hopes up just yet though. After multiple delays this year, another one might just happen. The previous Cyberpunk 2077 delay took everyone by surprise. So much so that not even the developers knew about it until the announcement. In addition, the developer even gave full confirmation that the November release date was solid and set in place.
Hopefully, gamers won’t be taken off guard by a Cyberpunk 2077 which pushes the game into 2021. We know the developer is struggling to get the game running on PS4 and Xbox One which caused the extra 21-day delay. As of now, Cyberpunk 2077 is set to release on 10 December 2020 on current and next-gen hardware and there’s no delay.
Here’s the tweet that sparked it all
So, what if #Cyberpunk2077 gets delayed….. Again.
Like what if it doesn’t launch this year.
Like uh until 2021.
Just asking….. #cyberpunk
