Well, our gaming time in April just freed up considerably, as the much-anticipated Cyberpunk 2077 has been delayed by several months.

It seems to be the week for it, with Final Fantasy VII Remake put back a month, and Marvel’s Avengers delayed from May 15 until September 4.

September will be busy then, as the new projected release date for Cyberpunk 2077 is September 17.

The disappointing news arrived in a statement from CD Projekt Red co-founder Marcin Iwiński and head of studio Adam Badowski:

“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.”
