Fans eagerly awaiting the release of action role-playing game  Cyberpunk 2077 will have to wait a bit more.

Polish video game developer CD Projekt Red revealed Tuesday that the game has pushed its release date from Nov. 19 to Dec. 10.

"The biggest challenge for us right now is shipping the game on current-gen, next-gen and PC at the same time, which requires us to prepare and test 9 versions of it," wrote the developer in a lengthy message on Twitter, noting that this is being done while the devs work 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."

When these processes are completed, the game will be available on everything from Xbox Series X to Google Stadia, PC, PlayStation 5 and more.

The developer went on to write, "We're aware that it might seem unrealistic when someone says that 21 days can make any difference in such a massive and complex game, but they really do."

Cyberpunk 2077 stars Keanu Reeves as a tech-enhanced mercenary working in a gritty underbelly world. It was originally scheduled to drop in April, and then September and November before this final December release date.
