Well, we would lie if we say that the news from CD Projekt Red was super surprising. One of the most anticipated games of 2020, Cyberpunk 2077 has been delayed. The game had to come out on April 16th, but the date was pushed back to September 17.
This letter for the fans revealed a couple of things. One – the game is already done and playable which is nice considering the ambition. This might mean that Cyberpunk 2077 at its current stage might be one of the greatest games ever created, but for CD Projekt RED “good enough” is not an option and we thank them for this approach.
The second thing is the amount of time the Cyberpunk 2077 team made for themselves. 5 additional months is a lot, but as the team said in their letter – the game is massive and in order to catch and fix all the bugs it takes time. Loads of it.
What’s surprising is the community that voiced their support for the team. Most gamers were not really angry and managed to look at the positives for the delay with the major one being more time for other games.
