Cyberpunk 2077 has been delayed, again. The highly-anticipated open-world RPG from CD Projekt Red is no longer releasing on September 17. Rather, it will release worldwide, via the PS4, Xbox One, and PC on November 19. According to the Polish developer, who made a name for itself via The Witcher, the game is content complete, but a game of Cyberpunk 2077's scope and ambition requires a huge amount of QA testing, polish, and balance. And in order to properly fulfill these requirements, the team needs a little bit more time.
With this new release date, it's quite possible PS5 and Xbox Series X versions of the game will ship alongside other versions of the game, but for now, this is just speculation. CD Projekt Red hasn't said one way or another, and at the moment, we don't know when either PS5 or Xbox Series X will launch, though it's suspected both will hit sometime in late October or the first few weeks of November.
Interestingly, CD Projekt Red has also revealed that members of the gaming press all around the world are getting their hands on the game this week, with previews scheduled to go out later this month. In other words, you will soon be able to read much more about the game, and how it's shaping up.
