Prior to the COVID-19 outbreak, CD Projekt Red delayed Cyberpunk 2077 from its original April 2020 release date to September 2020. Since then, there has been some concerns that the pandemic will cause further delays, but it looks like that won’t be the case, as the game is in its ‘final stage’ of development.
As part of CD Projekt Red’s latest financial report, not only did we learn that The Witcher series has surpassed 50 million copies sold, but we also got a nice, quick update on where Cyberpunk 2077 is at.
“CD PROJEKT RED is carrying out with the final stage of development of its most expansive RPG to-date: Cyberpunk 2077. The game features a vibrant, high-tech open world, where players assume the role of V – a cyberpunk who has recently migrated to the most dangerous metropolis of the future: Night City. Cyberpunk 2077 gameplay follows the rules of the Cyberpunk 2020 RPG system created by Mike Pondsmith.”
At this point, Cyberpunk 2077 should be content and feature complete, playable from start to finish. The finishing touches will be additional optimisation and bug fixes, all in time for the September 19th release date on PC, Xbox One and PS4. Next-gen versions of the game will also be coming eventually, but no dates have been announced.
KitGuru Says: Cyberpunk 2077’s release is just the beginning, as there will be two expansions to follow in 2021. Are many of you still looking forward to playing this in September?
