The highly anticipated Cyberpunk 2077 has been delayed to December 10. Initially launching on November 19, just one week after the release of next-generation consoles, CD Projekt Red has decided to delay the game three weeks.

Cyberpunk has been delayed twice already, so it’s no surprise the game is being pushed back yet again. However, it is a little surprising since the game has “Gone Gold.” So what does this mean exactly?
Well, CD Projekt Red breaks it down for everyone on Twitter. You can read the statement below.

“Some of you might also be wondering what these words mean in light of us saying we achieved gold master some time ago. Passing certification, or “going gold”, means the game is ready, can be completed, and has all content in it. But it doesn’t mean we stop working on it and raising the quality bar. On the contrary, that is the time where many improvements are being made which will then be distributed via a Day 0 patch. This is the time period we under calculated.”
There’s been a lot going on with Cyberpunk 2077 in the news lately. From developers having to crunch to meet deadlines, and poor representation of groups of people in the game.
This certainly doesn’t help the image of Cyberpunk 2077 or CD Projekt Red. However, if it needs the time to make the game the best it can be, that’s understandable to a degree.
At least now, you’ll have some time to enjoy the other games coming out around the time of the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X release, like Bugsnax. Seriously, play Bugsnax.
Or ya know you could play Demon’s Souls or Yakuza: Like a Dragon, or any of the other games. Basically, there’s a lot to play. Cyberpunk 2077 can be a nice palette cleanser or something.
