After having two of the biggest games of the year delayed just a couple days ago in Square Enix’s Marvel’s Avengers (delayed to September) and Final Fantasy 7 Remake (delayed to April), CD Projekt RED has also decided to push the launch of their big game back. Mentioned in the tweet shown above, Cyberpunk 2077 has now been delayed from it’s April release to September 17th.
This pushes the game back a full six months, knocking it clear of the first half of the year and creating what will likely be the busiest fall season we’ve had this entire generation. Of course, these three delays aren’t the only ones we’ve had for the 2020 calendar — last year, Ubisoft pushed back the release of their new IP Gods and Monsters, alongside their reinvention of Watch Dogs in Watch Dogs: Legion, as well as their upcoming Rainbow Six: Quarantine. But while Ubisoft’s games might find their way to store shelves during the next quarter, CDProjektRED’s sudden delay will likely make it much more enticing for fans to simply wait less than two months for the release of next generation consoles to play the game. Even if there’s no specific Xbox Series X or PS5 version of Cyberpunk 2077, the title will still run drastically better on the new consoles than the old.
But will that be enough for people who’ve waited seven years for this game?
