Following news that both Marvel’s Avengers and Final Fantasy 7 Remake have been delayed, it seems another high profile game is joining the file. CD Projekt RED has made the Cyberpunk 2077 delayed announcement today, with the new Cyberpunk 2077 release date set for September 17, 2020.

The letter from CD Projekt RED reads:
We have important news regarding Cyberpunk 2077’s release date we’d like to share with you today.
Cyberpunk 2077 won’t make the April release window and we’re moving the launch date to September 17, 2020.
We are currently at a stage where the game is complete and playable, but there’s still work to be done. Night City is massive — full of stories, content and places to visit, but due to the sheer scale and complexity of it all, we need more time to finish playtesting, fixing and polishing. We want Cyberpunk 2077 to be our crowning achievement for this generation and postponing launch will give us the precious months we need to make the game perfect.
Expect more regular updates on progress as we get closer to the new release date.
We’re really looking forward to seeing you in Night City, thank you for your ongoing support!
Will this delay mean that the Cyberpunk 2077 multiplayer mode will be available at launch? We can’t say for sure, but here’s to hoping.
