Developer CD Projekt Red now has its developers working at home, and has assured gamers that this will not cause a delay in Cyberpunk 2077's release. 

In the wake of COVID-19, also known as coronavirus, many industries around the world have switched to having their employees work at home. This includes CD Projekt Red. On Twitter, the developer, announced that despite the fact that the studio has all of its team working at home, Cyberpunk 2077 will still release in September. 

"Many of you are probably wondering how things are at CD PROJEKT RED and how COVID-19 influences our day-to-day operations," the studio tweeted. "Here's a short update.

"Over the past week, we have been adapting to the situation and gradually rolling out preventive measures across our entire organization. We've also been upgrading equipment & infrastructure and working towards enabling our employees to work remotely, from the safety of their homes. 

"Today, as a result of that preparation, CD PROJEKT RED switches to full remote work for as long as it is needed. We think this will grant every team member the highest level of personal health safety. And while this is all a bit new to everyone, we are rising to the challenge and showing no signs of stopping in our effort to bring you some kick-ass role-playing action in September." 

Cyberpunk 2077 was originally given an April release date. However, CD Projekt Red announced earlier this year that the game would be pushed back to September because of the need for playtesting, fixing and polishing. In order to polish the title, the original release date was pushed to September. CD Projekt Red has stated that Cyberpunk 2077 is playable, but that the game is not in a finished state just yet. 

Cyberpunk 2077 is aiming for a September 17th release. The game will release on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
