CD PROJEKT RED today announced that the Cyberpunk 2077 release date has been pushed back from April 16, 2020 to September 17, 2020. In a statement today, the company says it is not making the April release window.
“We are currently at a stage where the game is complete and playable, but there’s still work to be done,” they said. “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 is the upcoming open-world, action-adventure story from the creators of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. The game is coming to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and Stadia (pre-order here).
The game’s Collector’s Edition is also available for pre-order and comes packed with a number of high-quality collectibles. These include a 25 cm / 10 inch statue depicting the game’s protagonist — V — in action, a steelbook case, a hardcover art book, and more. The Collector’s Edition comes in an impressive box made to look like one of the megabuildings towering over Night City.
The previously-released trailer revealed one of the key characters of Cyberpunk 2077, Johnny Silverhand. The legendary rockerboy is played by Hollywood actor Keanu Reeves (John Wick and The Matrix films). In addition to his appearance and voice, Reeves is also providing full-body motion capture for the character.
Cyberpunk 2077 is a narrative-driven, open world RPG set in the most vibrant and dangerous metropolis of the future – Night City. The game follows the story of V, a hired gun on the rise in a world of cyberenhanced street warriors, tech-savvy netrunners and corporate life-hackers. Featuring CD PROJEKT RED’s hallmark concept of choices and consequences, players will face difficult decisions that ripple through the entire game. Winner of over 100 awards at E3 2018, Cyberpunk 2077 is set in the universe of the classic pen & paper RPG system, Cyberpunk 2020.
