Cyberpunk 2077 Won't be Delayed Again, Reaffirms CD Projekt CEO
Cyberpunk 2077 development is said to be entering its final phase, with the title being prepper for certification right now.
Cyberpunk 2077 was supposed to release all the way back in April, but for a number of reasons, the highly-anticipated RPG has since been delayed multiple times to its current window in November. Fortunately, for those who were worried that the game might not make its date before the end of 2020, CD Projekt has now said otherwise.
During today’s investor call for CD Projekt that went over statistics from the first half of the year, company President and CEO Adam Kiciński reiterated that Cyberpunk 2077 will indeed be launching in a little over two months. Kiciński said that the project is nearing its final stages, and is even nearing its submittal for final certification. Despite nearing its “final” build though, Kiciński said that CD Projekt Red will still continue to work on Cyberpunk 2077 up until launch day, which isn’t shocking whatsoever. Nearly all games that release nowadays have some sort of day one patch, after all.

While some might scoff at the notion of Cyberpunk 2077, you know, actually releasing, Kiciński overall sounded extremely confident that the current launch date will be met. The fact that he went as far to admit that certification is upon the studio backs up that notion, too. If you’ve been fearful that the title will somehow slip into 2021, it seems like there’s a very good chance that it won’t — thank goodness.
We’ll finally be able to get our hands on Cyberpunk 2077 when it releases later this fall on November 19 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. A version of the game for Stadia is also in the pipeline, as is next-gen iterations on PS5 and Xbox Series X. All three of these latter installments still do not have specified launch dates, however.
