The original launch date was 16 April 2020, making it pushed back by 5 months. Cyberpunk 2077 puts you in the role of “V”, who has a highly customizable appearance and backstory. Previously at GameStart 2019, we had the chance to preview some pre-recorded gameplay for a taster into this world. There’s plenty of emphasis on choices, touted repeatedly by the developers.
The full notice for the delayed Cyberpunk 2077 reads as follows:
We have important news regarding Cyberpunk 2077’s release date we’d like to share with you today.
Cyberpunk 2077 won’t make the April release window and we’re moving the launch date to September 17, 2020.
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. 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.
Expect more regular updates on progress as we get closer to the new release date.
We’re really looking forward to seeing you in Night City, thank you for your ongoing support!
In any case, we can only just wait.
