CD Projekt Red has delayed Cyberpunk 2077 once again. The studio has moved the game’s release date by 21 days, from November 19th to December 10th. The delay affects all versions of the title.
“Most likely, there are many emotions and questions in your heads, so, first and foremost, please accept our humble apologies,” the studio said on Twitter. CD Projekt says the delay is due to the challenge of launching the title on what amounts to nine different platforms while everyone on the team works from home. “Since Cyberpunk 2077 evolved towards almost being a next-gen title somewhere along the way, we need to make sure everything works well and every version runs smoothly,” the studio said.

When Cyberpunk 2077 finally comes out, you’ll be able to play the game on both current- and next-generation consoles, as well as PC and Stadia. All told, this is the third time CD Projekt has delayed its latest open-world RPG. The title was initially slated to come out on April 16th, 2020. In January, CD Projekt Red pushed the game back to September 17th. In June, it then delayed the title to November 19th, and now we have this delay. While the new date might be frustrating for those who want to play it, the news is worse for the studio’s employees. According to a recent Bloomberg report, CD Projekt Red recently mandated the Cyberpunk 2077 team work mandatory six-day weeks to push the title out.
