Cyberpunk 2077's developer CD Projekt Red has delayed Cyberpunk 2077 an extra 21 days, to December 10, 2020.

This is the latest in several delays: The game was originally announced for a release in April, which was then pushed back to September and again to November. On October 5, the studio declared that the game had "gone gold," meaning its ready to go and ship with complete content.

The studio was in crunch mode, with six-day work weeks, Bloomberg reported, but there is still work to be done. In an announcement in a tweet, the company said the delay was due to shipping nine versions of the game: Xbox One, Xbox One X, Xbox Series S and X, PlayStation 4, PS4 Pro, PS5, PC and Stadia, across different generations of hardware.

The statement also says that even though the game has gone gold, the time is necessary to make improvements that will be issued in a Day 0 patch.

"We're aware it might seem unrealistic when someone says that 21 days can make any difference in such a massive and complex game, but they really do," the statement reads. We'll see when the game comes out in December.

    I ain't even mad, that gives me more time to secure a 3080 and a 4k monitor.
    Heck yeah.

    They should leave Stadia out for later, that will make only 8 systems, instead of 9.

    Who use stadia anyways?

    Seems someone bending the truth :(

    More of the release now and patch later, there should not be any need for a Day 0 patch. Any game should not be released that needs fixing on the first day.

    All this time in crunch mode, with six-day work weeks, this is rather bad for the staff, I hope they are getting fully played for this!!

    I am saddened by this but I understand wanting to polish the game as much as they can. That said, darn you CD Projekt Red, 2020 has been lacking in things to look forward to, stop moving the goal post.

    Psst.
    Don't look now, but they're behind you with pitchforks...

    But seriously: we know there are some who do, and among them - or perhaps all of them - folks are desperately standing their ground for the platform...
    If only because they don't want their investment to disappear faster than Radeon 7 support...
