Cyberpunk 2077 Delayed Again

Despite previous indications that CD PROJEKT RED was determined to release Cyberpunk 2077 on November 17th, in a new tweet they announce the game has suffered yet another delay, and is now expected on December 10th. The sci-fi RPG was originally planned to come on April 16, 2020. Then early this year it was pushed back to September 17th. Despite repeated assurances that it was on track, in June it was announced that it was being pushed back to November 17th. The development team has already had to crunch, and the game is officially gold, but word is it is still being set back by three weeks:
Hey everyone,

Today we decided to move to release date of Cyberpunk 2077 by 21 days. The new release date is December 10.

The biggest challenge for us right now is shipping the game on current-gen, next-gen, and PC at the same time, which requires us to prepare and test nine versions of it (Xbox One/X, compatibility on Xbox Series S|X, PS4/Pro, compatibility on PS5, PC, Stadia)... while working from home. Since Cyberpunk 2077 evolved towards almost being a next-gen title somewhere along the way, we need to make sure everything works well and every version runs smoothly. We're aware it might seem unrealistic when someone says that 21 days can make any difference in such a massive and complex game, but they really do.

Some of you might be wondering what these words mean in light of us saying we achieved gold master some time ago. Passing certification, war '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, this is the time where many improvements are being made which will then be distributed up by a Day 0 patch. This is the time period we undercalculated.

We feel we have an amazing game on our hands and are willing to make every decision, even the hardest ones, if it ultimately leads to you getting a video game you'll fall in love with.
