The Polish study rules out a new date change in the game’s premiere, planned for this month of December to achieve the best possible note.
Cyberpunk 2077 will go on sale worldwide on December 10. This is confirmed once again by the CD Projekt RED studio, immersed in the last stages of the development of the long-awaited title.
During the day this Tuesday, a possible delay to 2021 has begun to sound through the forums and social networks according to a change of image and description in the headers of the official Twitter account of the video game. For a few hours, that header appeared without a date and, therefore, woke up all the alarms. Everything solved, apparently, according to IGN.
“As a general rule, we don’t comment on rumors or speculation,” a CD Projekt representative begins by telling IGN. “But I can confirm that we were just taking some time to update all of our materials to show the new release date, December 10,” he continues. 21 more days of waiting, however, that if everything goes well they will be the last.
Overtime for employees: Cyberpunk 2017’s road to launch
According to the Polish company, one of the main reasons for this three-week delay is that they want to achieve a rating of more than 90 on Metacritic; a very complicated note that only a few surpass each year. After knowing the change of date, the statements of some of its executives tensed the atmosphere a bit more, specifically due to the words of Adam Kicinski, CEO of CD Projekt, in a meeting with shareholders, when he said that crunch “is not so bad “And” never was. ”
He had to apologize, especially when it is known that for more than a month the employees have been working from Monday to Saturday with extended working hours without the possibility of choice.
Cyberpunk 2077 will be released on December 10 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Google Stadia, and PC. PS5 and Xbox Series X | S players will be able to upgrade to the next-generation version for free by purchasing the current console version; although with regard to the new generation native version we will have to wait until sometime in 2021.
