Yesterday CD Projekt Red sent gamers around the world into meltdown by further delaying the release of the highly anticipated Cyberpunk 2077 from November 19 to December 10. The statement put out by CD Projekt Red stated that the studio needed more time to prepare the game for launch on nine platforms all at once. However, further information has been divulged, with CD Projekt Red CEO Adam Kicinski revealing that the PC version of the game is “ready”, while the game “plays well on next-gen consoles,” with the current-gen systems still requiring polish and extra work.

Another interesting tidbit in the report comes from Senior Vice President Business Development Michal Nowakowski who says that “Those who completed the game say they have never played a game like this before,” a statement that will no doubt make the wait harder.
Lastly, CD Projekt Red developers have been receiving death threats over the recent delay, please don’t do this. These people have spent years developing this game, with many doing so under extreme crunch. If you find yourself wanting to abuse developers for a video game delay, just log off and delete your social media account(s). Otherwise, enjoy something else, like Watch Dogs: Legion until December 10.
