It almost seems like an eternity since the first look to cyberpunk 2077 was revealed way back years ago. It’s almost funny now given how much the game itself has been pushed further and further over time. First, it was due to technical concerns then the COVID-19 pandemic caused various delays.
Now it seems that the game would move from its previous release on September 17th to November 19th. The basic explanation provided by CD Projekt Red is that the game is complete including the dialogues, cutscenes and everything in between however with a game with such a vast world an abundance of bugs are to be found.
According to their press release the studio is taking all this time to sand out all the rough edges and bring a once and for all seamless gaming experience. It is true that CD Projekt Red has been one of the more perfectionism based studios yet having to wait so much cant be justified no matter what.
Furthermore, fans are in flames, many even going as far as cancelling their pre-orders out of rage. It seems that the pushed release might as well hide an ulterior motive according to many Reddit theories like having a release window on next-generation consoles.
All in all, it seems that we’d have to wait a few more months. Considering the studio’s attention to detail if the title remains to have bugs and issues fans would reasonably be enraged.
