Cyberpunk 2077 Is Delayed Again to December

CD Projekt Red is pushing the date on Cyberpunk back yet again.

Cyberpunk 2077 is once again pushing its launch date back. CD Projekt Red announced today that the RPG will be set for a Dec. 10 launch, three weeks after its previously expected launch date of Nov. 19.

In a statement on social media, CD Projekt Red's Adam Badowski and Marcin Iwinski say the biggest challenge, at the moment, is shipping the game on current and next-gen consoles as well as PC, which requires "nine versions" to be tested and prepped. "We're aware it might seem unrealistic when someone says that 21 days can make a difference in such a massive and complex game," the statement reads. "But they really do."

The statement also addresses the recent announcement that Cyberpunk 2077 had gone gold. According to the pair, they say going gold means the game is "ready, can be completed, and has all content in it," but that doesn't mean the studio stops working on it.

"On the contrary, this is the time where many improvements are being made which will then be distributed via a Day [Zero] patch," CD Projekt Red says. "This is the time period we undercalculated."

CD Projekt Red has been under significant scrutiny over reports of crunch at the studio, as it works to finish Cyberpunk 2077. The futuristic RPG has already been delayed two times this year before today. In a Twitter reply on Oct. 6, the official Cyberpunk 2077 account said "no more delays are happening."

With the next-gen console launch looming, a delay does push Cyberpunk 2077 out of the immediate launch window. Cyberpunk 2077 is now set for a Dec. 10 launch on current and next-gen Xbox and PlayStation consoles, as well as PC and Google Stadia.
