Ever since The Witcher III hit the market, CD Projekt Red has become a household name in the gaming industry, establishing new standards of quality for their games.

Additionally, the fact that they make DLCs that do indeed add content to the base game has also cleared them of the tag of a money-hungry corporation.

All these elements contributed to a high degree of trust on behalf of the player base, so it is understandable that everyone gate excited when they first announced their latest game, Cyberpunk 2077:

CD Projekt Red has delayed the release of Cyberpunk 2077

Despite being scheduled to be released on November 19, 2020, CD Projekt Red announced in a Tweet that they will be delaying the release of the game for 21 days, moving it up to December 10, 2020:

Given that 9 different versions of the games needed to be tested to make sure the best performance was delivered, it is understandable that the game got delayed.

Probably the ones that will be feeling the hit the biggest will be those that pre-ordered the Xbox Series X and S, as they will have to wait an entire month after receiving the console before adding Cyberpunk 2077 to their gaming library.

This seems to be just another consequence of the current global pandemic situation since the testing of all 9 versions needs to be tested by the developers from home.


The 21 days will be worth the wait

Lastly, in good old CD Projekt Red fashion, they wanted to remind players about the fact that they hold quality above all else when making the game, and they hope that the player base will be understanding of their motives.

While the news is indeed a bit of a letdown, those of you that played their past titles know that Cyberpunk 2077 will surely be worth the wait, so an extra 21 days for the sake of a high-quality game should indeed seem like nothing at all.
