Technically speaking, Cyberpunk Red is already available to play via the Jumpstart Kit, which was released last August. However, this is a stripped-back starter edition, and the now-postponed core rulebook will feature the full game. The rulebook was originally set to launch alongside the Jumpstart Kit, but was delayed so that better ties could be forged with the lore of Cyberpunk 2077. Originally that delay pushed the game back to June 2020, but now we’ll be looking at a later date.
Cyberpunk 2077 was delayed from April to September. With the lore of Cyberpunk Red – set in the era between the years 2020 and 2077 – directly tying into the world of CD Projek Red’s upcoming video game, the new target of the end of summer would bring the two projects closer together.
