CDP Red has seemingly decided to follow in Square Enix's footsteps — as Cyberpunk 2077 joins Final Fantasy VII: Remake and Marvel's Avengers as yet another highly anticipated video game that has been pushed back from its original release date.
As revealed by CDP, Cyberpunk 2077 won't hit stores on April 16 — as it's new launch day is the 17th of September.
"We are currently at a stage where the game is complete and playable, but there’s still work to be done. Night City is massive – full of stories, content, and places to visit, but due to the sheer scale and complexity of it all, we need more time to finish playtesting, fixing and polishing," CD Red explained in a special note to fans. "We want Cyberpunk 2077 to be our crowning achievement for this generation and postponing the launch will give us the precious months we need to make the game perfect."
Given that the studio's own The Witcher III: Wild Hunt had also been delayed a couple of time before its successful debut in 2015, it's good to know that CDP will have more time to polish the role-playing game.
With Cyberpunk 2077 being delayed to September, chances are that the title will be shown at Microsoft's E3 press conference for the third year in a row. The question is — will Keanu return to steal the show, too?
