Cyberpunk 2077 Has Been Pushed Back to September

You'll now have to wait a few more months to get your hands on Cyberpunk 2077.

January 16, 2020

In a week that has already been full of delays, developer CD Projekt Red announced today that Cyberpunk 2077 has been pushed back from its planned release date in April.

In a statement today, CD Projekt Red revealed that Cyberpunk 2077 will now launch on September 17, 2020. CD Projekt stated that the reason for the delay was to further playtest and polish the experience. As of now, Cyberpunk 2077 is said to be in a full, playable state, but there’s still a lot of work that needs to be done to get it to the level that the developers are looking for.

“We want Cyberpunk 2077 to be our crowning achievement for this generation and postponing launch will give us the precious months we need to make the game perfect,” CD Projekt Red explained. “Expect more regular updates on progress as we get closer to the new release date.”

As mentioned, Cyberpunk 2077 is the third notable release that has been delayed this week alone. Publisher Square Enix announced earlier this week that it had pushed back both Final Fantasy VII Remake and Marvel’s Avengers to April and September respectively. While Cyberpunk 2077 getting delayed is surely disappointing to many, it does make this first half of the year far less busy, which is probably a positive thing.

Even though it’ll now be releasing more closely to next-gen platforms in the PS5 and Xbox Series X, Cyberpunk 2077 is currently only planned to arrive on current generation hardware. Upon launch, you’ll be able to pick it up on PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Stadia.
