It was a good news, bad news situation Thursday for fans eagerly awaiting the release of CD Projekt Red’s Cyberpunk 2077. The developer announced the game will once again be pushed, but not by much. The game’s release date, which has already been delayed numerous times, has now been moved from Sept. 17 to Nov. 19.
In a lengthy statement posted to social media, the developer said it would never ship a game that was not ready, while acknowledging fan frustration with the delays.
“And despite, we still think it is the right decision for the game, we’d still like to apologize for making you wait longer,” reads the statement. The company noted that journalists “all around the world” will be able to begin testing the game this week for upcoming reviews.
The story-driven, open-world role-playing game made a huge stir at last summer’s E3 conference in Los Angeles when it was revealed that Keanu Reeves would have a starring role in the title. At that time, a release date was revealed as April 16, 2020.
