CD Projekt Red's next big adventure game, Cyberpunk 2077, has been postponed for the 4,000th time since it was announced about eight years ago.
After CD Projekt Red assured fans that the game's final delay – until November 19th – was rather ironic, partly due to the "going gold," CD Projekt Red confirmed a new one via a Twitter post on Tuesday Release date. Cyberpunk 2077 will now arrive simultaneously on a number of platforms on December 10th. (Take a deep breath: Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PS4, Windows 10 PC and Stadia.)
"'Going Gold' means that the game is ready, can be completed and contains all content," the studio's leads wrote in a statement. "But that doesn't mean we stop working on it and raise the quality limit … This is the period we have underestimated."
The best response to Tuesday's Twitter post was a picture taken the day before from CDPR's Twitter account. It showed that the developer responded directly to a fan asking if the start date was rescheduled for November 19th so he could take that day off from work. The direct response from CDPR was two simple words: "Complete affirmation!"
Prior to this assurance, CDPR's quarterly address to fans in early September contained a statement by CFO Piotr Nielubowicz: "By the time we meet again in this format, Cyberpunk 2077 will have already been released." That language implied that CP2077 would be released before the next episode of this CDPR video series, likely in early December.
