CD Projekt Red has implemented a work from home policy to adapt to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak. However, the company has assured fans that Cyberpunk 2077 is still on track to be released in September.
In a Tweet published on the company’s official social media account CD Projekt Red wrote, “Over the past week, we have been adapting to the situation and gradually rolling out preventative 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.”

As a result of these efforts CD Projekt Red says that it’s switching to full remote work “for as long as it is needed.” However, the studio added that the company is “rising to the challenge and showing no signs of stopping in our effort to bring you some kick-ass role-playing action in September.” When IGN reached out for clarification, CD Projekt explained that the developers “are on track with [Cyberpunk 2077] for September 17, 2020.”
Cyberpunk 2077 was originally supposed to be released in April, but the company announced earlier this year that because of the need for further playtesting, fixing, and polishing, that the launch date would be moved back to September. CD Projekt also said at the time that Cyberpunk 2077 was in a “complete and playable” state, but that didn’t necessarily mean that Cyberpunk was in a finished state.
