One of the most anticipated games of the year has been delayed for a total of 5 months. This game is Cyberpunk 2077 by CD Projekt Red. The original date to launch was April 16th but now it is September 17th of this year. This announcement was made in a tweet by the official CD Projekt Red account which states the reason as “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.”
Cyberpunk 2077 has been in development since at least 2013. The role-playing video game is an adaption of the Cyberpunk RPG universe where body mods are the hot new thing in society. The video game itself has a customizable playable character named V who is controlled by the player through first-person view. E3 2019 famously revealed that Keanu Reeves would play an important character in the game who is called Johnny Silverhand. The game joins the delay line-up which also includes Final Fantasy VII Remake and Marvel’s Avengers who have been delayed to April 10 and September 4 respectively.
