Cyberpunk 2077 has been heavily criticized for not sticking to their originally planned release date and many more date changes that it has gone through.
CD Projekt Red states that the current delay is due to its game shipping to different platforms such as Playstation, Xbox & Stadia. But would also include next-gen consoles – Playstation 5 & Xbox Series X. Developing and making sure that the game runs smoothly is the current aim.
The development for CP 2077 had started after the completion of The Witcher 3 with a mere staff of 50. The staff started working in March 2020 another reason being for the delay.
Earlier this month CD Projekt Red had bought in a mandatory crunch, which would make employees work overtime and have the lesser weekend.
CD Projekt Red had already stated that they do not want to ship a half-completed games and would only deliver the game when they are satisfied.
Hence the gamers can look forward to December 10th, 2020 for playing the game.
