“We are currently at a stage where the game is complete and playable, but there’s still work to be done. Night City is massive – full of stories, content, and places to visit, but due to the sheer scale and complexity of it all, we need more time to finish playtesting, fixing and polishing.”
CD Projekt Red did say that it wants Cyberpunk 2077 to be a “crowning achievement for this generation,” meaning the studio still intends to release Cyberpunk 2077 for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. CD Projekt Red also confirmed that the planned multiplayer will likely not be out until after 2021.

This is the third major delay for a video game title originally slated for Q1 2020. Square Enix announced earlier this week that Final Fantasy 7 Remake and Crystal Dynamic’s Avengers game would both be delayed. But while Final Fantasy 7 Remake was only delayed for a month, Avengers was delayed further back to September.While the wait for Cyberpunk 2077 will be longer, you can still check out IGN’s Cyberpunk 2077 preview for more coverage.
