Cyberpunk 2077 has been delayed once again. 

On Twitter, developer CD Projekt Red announced that Cyberpunk 2077 has been delayed. The game will now release on December 10th. According to CD Projekt Red, the game delayed due to the challenge of  shipping the game on current-gen, next-gen, and PC all at the same time. The developer wants to make sure that every version of the game runs as it should. 

"The biggest challenge for us right now is shipping the game on current-gen, next-gen, and PC at the same time, which requires us to prepare and test 9 versions of it (Xbox One / X, compatibility on Xbox Series X / S, PS4 / Pro, compatibility on PS5, PC, Stadia)... while working from home," states CD Projekt Red's Adam Badowski and Marcin Iwinski. "Since Cyberpunk 2077 evolved towards almost being a next-gen title somewhere along the way, we need to make sure everything works well and every version runs smoothly. We're aware it might seem unrealistic when someone says that 21 days can make any difference in such a massive and complex game, but they really do.

"... We feel we have an amazing game on our hands and are willing to make every decision, even the hardest ones, if it ultimately leads to you getting a video game you'll fall in love with." 

Earlier this month it had been announced that Cyberounk 2077 had gone gold, which usually means that the game is ready to be released. The announcement that the game had gone gold came after the team behind it announced that they had entered crunch time in order to get the game done on time, which rubbed some people the wrong way. 

Cyberpunk 2077 will release on December 10th for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S, and Google Stadia.
