Cyberpunk 2077 delayed until September 2020

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Cyberpunk 2077 delayed until September 2020

I was surprised it was launching so soon, so a delay to a less busy season is better for me.

5 months will go quick.

January almost over.



 

 

This is a joke. But a joke that had to be made...


On a serious note, I'm sure they just feel they need more time with the game before they're satisfied. And that's always good when publishers give developers that option, imo. (In this case CD Project Red is both developer and publisher though.) I hear it's quite rare these days. We may not think so, because we only hear about the delays. And not so much the games that get rushed. Which can be noticeable if there are terrible glitches Day 1, but it's much harder, or impossible, to tell when it comes to many other aspects of polish.

As a bonus everyone gets a better game, and they'll launch in a seemingly less crowded time of the year.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO



Made a bet with LipeJJ and HylianYoshi that the XB1 will reach 30 million before Wii U reaches 15 million. Loser has to get avatar picked by winner for 6 months (or if I lose, either 6 months avatar control for both Lipe and Hylian, or my patrick avatar comes back forever).

I assume you are joking, but just in case you were not, Benji revealed day before yesterday when FF7 was delayed until 1 week before Cyberpunk, that Cyberpunk preorders were tracking well above FF7 Remake, even in a PS4 vs PS4 only contest.

The delay happened for one of 2 reasons, probably a mix of the 2:

  1. The game actually needs more time to be ready
  2. They decided at the last minute to make the game cross-gen, so they moved it closer to the launch window for PS5 and XSX so that they can release it on them a month or two after the current gen version releases.

Good.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

Think i'm gonna cancel it now and wait for a PS5 versions



Nothing to see here, move along

Fuck you.

Never heard of'em, but I can tell you FF7 Remake will not be hurt at all, people will buy it and some will buy both. I question where he is getting these pre order numbers from. I've yet to see cyberpunk 2077 make it on the top 100 Amazon best sellers list yet. Even though it has the advantage of being multiplat.

A not so surprising move from CD project ...Anyway, a 5 months delay already tells me what I should know. Development of the game is probably just as chaotic as it was for TW3 so much so they delayed it 5 months from what they thought at first.

I'm expecting sadly so frightening stories from ex-devs once this whole shabang is over.
