The announcement came directly from Marcin Iwiński, Co-Founder and Adam Badowski, Head of Studio in the form of a letter. The letter started out by describing the motive behind the studio’s decision to postpone the release of the title. Which was, to make sure that the game was totally ready at launch. They stated that the phrase “Ready when it’s done” is something that their developers have always stood by. And that they would not ship their product until and unless they were completely sure it was ready. They further went on to apologise for the delay and said that it was the right decision to make in regards to the well being of the game. As for the game’s status, they stated that it is ready in terms of content and gameplay. However, with the abundance of quests, cutscenes and elements in the massive open-world environment, it is necessary to make sure that the game was devoid of any technical errors such as bugs or glitches, at launch-day. For which they require at least 2 more months.
Cyberpunk 2077 was first announced back in 2013 with a cinematic teaser trailer. Since then the game has been in development and was officially revealed to the public at E3 2018. The game features a huge open-world map with tons of RPG elements, a highly story-driven narrative and an arsenal of futuristic weapons and mechanics at your disposal. The game which was originally scheduled to come out on 16 April 2020 was then postponed to 17 September 2020 back in January, as the developers needed more time to finish the game. Earlier this year, CD Projekt Red had also announced a whole bunch of Cyberpunk 2077 themed custom hardware including an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080Ti graphics card, an Xbox One X console and a set of Steelseries headsets to go along with the game.
Journalists worldwide would be getting their hands on the game this week. They will be publishing their previews for the game right after Cyberpunk 2077’s digital event, Night City Wire, which is scheduled to air on 25 June 2020 on their official YouTube channel and the Summer Game Fest official website.
